Iomedae (pronounced ahy-OH-meh-day) is the goddess of righteous valor, justice, and honor. Having served as Aroden’s herald, she inherited many of the Last Azlanti’s followers upon his death, and continues to espouse the ideas of honor and righteousness in the defense of good and the battle against evil.
As a mortal, Iomedae was a Chelish human who led the Knights of Ozem in the Shining Crusade against the forces of the Whispering Tyrant. In the fall of 3832 AR, Iomedae, was the last mortal to pass the Test of the Starstone and ascend to godhood. Her actions gained the notice of Aroden. She became his herald, replacing the slain Arazni. She served him in this capacity until Aroden’s death in 4606 AR.
Iomedae views Abadar, Cayden Cailean, Erastil, Sarenrae, Shelyn, and Torag as the equivalent of allies. She harbours a grudge against Pharasma, for keeping secret the demise of Aroden. With the exception of Asmodeus, she never associates or parleys with evil gods or fiends. Even with Asmodeus though, Iomedae treats him with extreme caution, and never in more than an advisory role.
