Flayli

Flayli is typical of the many animal gods found throughout the land. She is a monkey spirit, who cares and protects the monkeys of the southern jungle islands. She is not prayed to by the sentient races, but rather she is appeased. Shrines in her honor are often found at the edge of jungle villages, where food is left as an offering to her. These offerings serve as “bribes” that she leave the village, or jungle explorer, alone while they are in her lands. Flayli is famed for her love of playing pranks on the unwary.

Implicit in the giving of an offering at her shrines is that the giver intends no harm to the monkeys she protects. As long as that remains true, she can be trusted to honor the offering. Those that fail to provide an offering, or harm monkeys, risk all manner of bad luck: canteens run empty, food goes foul, or the jungle itself may become an endless maze. She does not visit these pranks on the undeserving, however, such as when a monkey is harmed while trying to steal from a traveller.

In appearance, Flayli looks like a chimpanzee with a lavendar-colored face and sandy brown hair. She is easily twice the size of the largest chimpanzee, however. It is rare to see the goddess, and most accounts refer to having seen her sitting among any of the tribes of monkeys that she protects, often being groomed by them.
