Goddess of Music EditAlyra is the Goddess of Air and Music, one of the Four Primals. She is, by extension, also seen as the Divine Muse, inspiring artists of every variety. She has dominion over the Elemental Plane of Air, but is not limited to just that one domain.
Her followers see her as a rather elusive and arbitrary deity, often withholding her gifts from devoted followers and granting them to those who deserve them least. As such, she is the least likely among the Four to be worshiped in an established temple or church. Her clerics are few and far between, and services offered to her are just as rare.
