Description: Vara is the first child of the evil spirit Meyanok, and she considers herself superior to her siblings. She uses her birth-status and her powers to get them to do her bidding. Vara shares her father’s hatred of the other great spirits of the Touv pantheon, and relishes the opportunity to twist their minds. She prefers to be depicted as a Touv woman with stars in her hair and red eyes. The priests of Vara rule through fear and oppression. Those who follow them willingly are people who enjoy making the lives of others miserable. They are tyrants or bullies, often acting as the enforcement agents of a cruel leader. Ceremonial garb includes necklaces of mummified animal feet.
