Ursus is among the most popular Celestial worshiped in Gaeldren, especially among the smallfolk. She is known as The Sentinel, and is the Goddess of vigilance, protection and towers. Her priests are also skilled warriors who practice with tower shields, her favored weapon, and stand as staunch defenders of the defenseless, while also providing charity to the poor. These priests specialize in the domains of Community, Good, Healing, Protection, and Strength.
Ursus is a human goddess, and her worship was brought to The Kingdom of Redalia by slaves during the second age. During the era of slavery, the worship of Ursus was outlawed by the High-Elven monarchy, fearing that she would give the humans a unifying banner to revolt under. Despite this, her worship continued in secret, and after emancipation, the church of Ursus quickly became one of the most widely worshiped deities in the Kingdom.
Ursus is said to take the form of a heavily armored and beautiful maiden bearing a tower shield and crystalline spear and held aloft on great white swan wings. Her emblem is that of a tower, often depicted in a shape similar to that of a shield. Ursus is Lawful-Good.
