Elluvia, God of the City (?)

It has been a long time since an accurate count of the number of gods, godlings, demigods, anthropomorphic personifications and other assorted divine (or semi-divine) beings which call the city their home could be made. At a best guess, thousands now roam the place, each attempting to carve out a niche of worship lest they shrivel and fade away. For many, this means abandoning whatever purview the belonged to in their own world, and attempting to find one more in line with the zeitgeist. Elluvia is notable for having come up with a particularly cunning slant on this strategy, and by all accounts has begun to reap the benefits of it.

Rather than something so abstract as love, hope, or even intangibly physical such as fire or lightning, Elluvia has attempted to establish herself as a god of the city itself. By aligning her actions with the city's interests, as best as she can, she has made an attempt to tap into and siphon off the dedication and energy that many who dwell in its (or as she likes to say, her) streets put towards their home. For a good thirty years, she remained a figure of minor celebrity, popular at parties, but not a major player in city politics. Something changed around five years ago however. Her power began to swell immensely, as if her attempts had finally borne fruit. Suddenly she appeared capable (and willing) to fashion entire city blocks out of nowhere, adding to and improving the city at quite a rate.

At this point, the guilds began to take serious notice of her, some to court her favour, others to attempt to work against her. She is extremely popular with both the Renaissant and the Union, which both hold the success and growth of the city close to their hearts, but resented by many among the Inheritors as a power-shifting upstart, and outright loathed by the Contrite and the Escapologists, neither of whom can countenance the celebration of the City's virtues she represents.
