Lidyid found Tirah as she stood adjusting to the solid feeling of being on the earth. Here she was, now where should she go?
Lidyid didn’t give her time to think about it before he started chattering away. “Where are you going? Are you going to the temple? You’re a deva, right? How divine. The temple of Avandra has another one. I’ve never seen her, but I hear she’s grand. Come along, I’ll show you where to go.” And on he talked the whole way there while Tirah followed silently, certain she would be glad to arrive in the temple where there would be peace and quiet.
She was welcomed into the temple with joy. The other deva there, Idria, gracefully welcomed her and took Tirah under her care.
For Tirah, though she enjoyed the closeness to her goddess while being in the temple, the longer she was there the more she wondered if this was really the right place. Did Avandra want her in seclusion, or was there a greater purpose and service in the mysterious world outside? Idria told her this was nonsense and in the temple is where she belonged, that was where Avandra put her.
One day Arden Holiday happened upon her; Tirah never learned if she was in search of information or just curious about deva. Friendship developed and from Arden she heard news of the state of the world and all the interesting things she was missing. As any good friend, Arden encouraged Tirah to at least find out if she’d rather fight for the world instead of just hiding and praying for it. Tirah decided to leave, so Arden snuck her out.
