Anael

Anael is one of Elua's Companions, and is known as 'The Good Steward' and 'The Star of Love'. It is from Anael that d'Angelines learned the art of growing crops, the skills of animal husbandry, and of using the land to provide nourishment and in turn to nourish the land. Anael caused Elua's oak to sprout when he blew on an acorn which Elua offered to him, the seedling of which they planted together in the centre of what would become the City of Elua.

Anael founded the rich and fertile territory of L'Agnace in the heartland of Terre d'Ange, a province renowned for its grapes, orchards, and fine grazing land for cattle and sheep. It is said that agriculture thrives here as if stirred forth by Anael himself.

The main temple dedicated to the worship of Anael is located within his chosen province of l'Agnace, a magnificent structure that almost resembles that of a greenhouse with its construct of glass and stone. It is said that within its grounds can be found examples of every living plant that grows within the borders of Terre d'Ange. The temple within Marsilikos is, quite naturally, a more humble affair than the one in l'Agnace, but it is nevertheless still a place that inspires peace and reflection within those it embraces.

Temple

Anael's temple in Marsilikos appears, at first, to be a humble affair. Columns of reddish-brown marble hold up a pantile roof of terracotta clay, whilst the walls are left open to all sides to encourage the encroach of the weather, whatever the season. Vines scramble up the pillars and over the roof to soften the structure to offer fruits and berries in the autumnal months, and glorious scents the whole year through. The apple trees so beloved by Anael are much in evidence within the temple and its grounds, forming pockets of quiet within which to worship. Like the temple itself, the effigy of Anael which is set within its heart is a thing of natural beauty and construct. Carved from wood, it depicts Anael seated upon the stump of a tree. A gentle smile is ever-present on his face as he looks down and across the grounds of his temple, a bowl cradled in his arms that's filled with a collection of fruits and vegetables which worshippers have given as offerings. Of all the Companions, it is to Anael that the farmers of the lands surrounding Marsilikos come; to make offerings and give prayers in the hopes of a bountiful harvest.

An oasis of nature and peace within the city, the temple and grounds are tended to by the brown-robed priesthood of Anael, considered to be amongst the finest horticulturists in Terre d'Ange.

Priesthood

The priesthood of Anael is garbed in simple brown robes with a rope belt, and they are often regarded as the finest horticulturalists in Terre d'Ange.
