Hind is a Deity of Hollow

Hind is the Deity of the earth, associated with fertility, nature, and creation. They are said to take the form of a white stag or red doe, and are often depicted as a full figured woman with dark skin and dark curls. Believed to be the personification of the earth itself, Hind is often depicted as a powerful, maternal figure who nurtures all living things. They are associated with the natural world, and are said to have given birth to many of the creatures and elements of the earth, including mountains and trees.

Hind is known to favor druids, witches, and farmers who show respect and care for the natural world, and is believed to bless them with bountiful crops and other gifts. They are also revered by women, particularly those who are pregnant, as Hind is said to preside over births and motherhood. As an earth Deity, Hind embodies the creative and sustaining aspects of the natural world, and is seen as a powerful and nurturing force. Their association with the white stag or red doe symbolizes their connection to the animals and the cycles of nature, and their form as a woman represents their connection to fertility and motherhood.

While Hind is often portrayed as benevolent, as the Deity of nature they can also be quite brutal. Like the natural forces they embody, their wrath can be swift and devastating. While green and soft growing things are part of nature, so too are the devastation of tornadoes, forest fires and volcanic eruptions.


Bountiful crops

It is widely accepted that Hind is responsible for sustaining growth and crops across Lithrydel.

Many legends tell of them falling in love with the god of light and the sun, Arkhen, who helps their creations grow even stronger with his warmth and light. Together, they work to ensure that the earth is fertile and that the mortals who depend on it are cared for. Hind and Arken’s love for each other and their fondness of mortals ensures that the crops grow, the flowers bloom, and that Lithrydel is sustained by their joint efforts. However, it is said that in the harshness of winter when Hind no longer urges the crops to grow and Kafzhash‘s light is short, this is because of Hind’s preoccupation with Selene.

Selene Island

According to myth, Selene also has a romantic relationship with Hind. Hind was said to have gifted Selene the island of Selene as a symbol of their love, which was once a sacred place of worship for Selene's followers.

The Rose

In this myth, the world was created through a great battle between the gods and the primordials. Even after the war ended, some gods continued to fight because they loved it. Delisha and Aramoth were two such gods who were drawn together by their love of battle. However, Delisha eventually grew tired of the constant fighting and left to explore the earthly pleasures of the world. It was there that she encountered the Deity Hind, who created these pleasures.

Hind gifted Delisha with a new creation, a white rose with a green stem, but Delisha was unimpressed. This insulted Hind, who saw it as an act of violence against their creation. In a fit of anger, Hind’s insult manifested through the stem of the rose like knives, causing Delisha's blood to spill onto the petals. This transformed the rose into thorny, vibrant red.
