Defenders of Stormfast
The chaotic Sifra is the goddess of Trickery. Known as The Lesser Daughter, her two aspects are Sifra Matsun, Queen of Love, and Sifra Inam, Countess of Passion. As the good Sifra Matsun, she gains the domains of Knowledge and Light. As the neutral Sifra Inam, she gains the domains of Nature and Tempest. Sifra is also known as Sifra Naler, Queen of Spite. In this evil aspect, she gains the domains of Light and War.
Sifra is the tertiary female deity in Tarmerian religion. The rituals dedicated to her usually involve hallucinogenic narcotics and orgies. Prayers to Matsun are mostly prayers for happiness and love, while prayers to Inam are mostly prayers for sensual or carnal pleasure. To Naler go the dead who killed for love, or for love themselves were killed.
