“It is your time.”
Religious power in the Northern tribes is held by women: the priestess caste of the All-Mother. From her all life is born: earth, men, even dragons. And what the All-Mother gave, she can take back. When her servants decide that a life must end, they send their own warriors to complete the task, the feared Maidens of War. Their most famous member is Arnwal, and though there are no ranks within this group -as all obey to the priestess- everyone looks for this young woman for advice and leadership. This Maiden of War has fought many enemies of the All-Mother, and so far none has been able to escape its fate.
