Mother Varushka

The Varushkan Egregore usually appears as a woman dressed in very traditional Varushkan dress and carrying a distinctive knarled wooden staff painted with dozens of images of virtuous animals. In this form, most call her Mother Varushka, a familial indication of the high respect in which she is held. At gatherings she usually wanders from tent to tent, listening to folk’s business and offering words of sage advice. She epitomizes the Varushkan tradition of a wise one, making time for any who need advice or help.

The Egregore works hard to maintain the hearth magics that keep everyday Varushkans safe. She is particularly concerned to ensure that Varushkans celebrate properly once the sun has set, and likes to test any child she meets about the nation’s traditions and the meanings behind them. She often appears when things seem darkest to remind people that wisdom can overcome any power.
