Iris

Dispel this cloud, the light of heaven restore ;
Give me to see and Ajax ask me no more ;
If Greece must perish we thy will obey,
But let us perish in the face of day.

— Pope

Iris, daughter of the Titan Thaumas and Electra, is the beautiful winged goddess of the rainbow and Hera's favorite messenger. Unlike Hera though, she is kind and gentle, although she has been known to deal with the harpies. She dresses in beautiful multicolored robes and carries her herald's staff wherever she goes. Iris only leaves Olympus to convey the divine commands to humankind, by whom she is regarded as an adviser and guide. Traveling with the speed of the wind, she can go from one end of the earth to the other, and to the bottom of the sea or to the depths of the underworld. Although she is a sister of the winged monsters, the Harpies, Iris is a beautiful maiden with wings and robes of bright colors and a halo of light on her head, trailing across the sky with a rainbow in her wake.

Iris favors training in Rituals and Arcane Knowledge, and disfavors training in Mechanical Knowledge. Her symbol is a water pitcher and her followers often offer to her fire opals, flowers, and rainbow medallions.
