Pharasma - The Lady of Graves
Whether depicted as the midwife, the prophet, or the reaper, Pharasma is a cold goddess with responsibility for the ultimate fate of all mortal souls. Yet though she represents death, she is not cruel; she shepherds souls into and out of the mortal world with care, taking no pleasure in suffering. She has seen tyrants prosper and the innocent weep, and is necessarily amoral, yet she has also seen people change dramatically over their lives, and thus withholds judgment until a mortal’s death. Though she can read the patterns and is said to know the fate of every life as it enters the world, she also understands the inconsistency of prophecy, and holds such knowledge close to her chest, maintaining the idea (or illusion) of free will.
