Sarra Beneksri was the daughter of Benek, the mother of Veralidaine Sarrasri and lover of Weiryn. Before her death in a bandit raid, she was a hedgewitch. She is currently a minor goddess known as The Green Lady.

Human Life

Sarra was a hedgewitch, or Gifted low-level healer and midwife[2], in the small Gallan village of Snowsdale.

One Beltane night, lacking a sweetheart, she went walking in the woods and met Weiryn. Sarra became pregnant with Daine, and refused to tell anyone who the father was. Sarra, Daine, and Benek all lived together and their home was a happy one. Although close to her daughter, Sarra and her father never got along very well.[3]

All the women in Sarra's family were healers, and she wanted her daughter to follow in her footsteps, repeatedly testing Daine for the Gift.[4] Although she recognized her daughter had a "knack with animals," she never suspected the true nature of Daine's Wild magic.

Sarra was a cheerful, kind, and traditional woman, and popular with men. Her greatest enjoyments were dancing and working in her garden and kitchen.[5] The women of Snowsdale were happy to rely on her for healing, but thought her shameful for bearing a child out of wedlock.[3] She never married, out of loyalty to Weiryn, despite receiving several offers from village men.[6][7]

In January of 449 HE[1], bandits attacked Snowsdale, killing many people, including both Sarra and Benek. Daine survived, by dint of being away from the village at the time of the raid.[6]

The Green Lady

After her death, her beloved, Weiryn, petitioned the gods to allow her to live with him in the Divine Realms and helped her become a minor goddess. The Green Lady watches over village gardens, childbearing, and matters of the heart in the Northern Forests of the Eastern Lands. (Note that these matters also fall under the province of The Great Mother Goddess, but The Goddess can't be everywhere.)[3]

The Green Lady began appearing over the town well in Snowsdale, telling people to call on her for help. When folk pray to her, she speaks to them, giving advice, and possibly uses her divine magic to assist them directly. The residents of the town don't know that the goddess they are praying to is the same person as Sarra.[3]

Physical description

Human

Sarra was blonde and blue-eyed[8], like most of the folk of Snowsdale[4]. Her Gift was rose pink.[3]

Goddess

As The Green Lady, she is taller than her mortal self, and wears a green dress with a green veil over her face and hair.[9]

Her divine magic manifests as white.[3]
