The wonderful act of finally
imprisoning Amat had many unexpected effects on Habololy. One of those
was the appearance of Dresta shortly after the appearance of the moon.
Dresta came to the Counsil in a mighty comet wreathed in blue flame
announcing that she was the mistress of Astilan, her name for the newly
formed moon. The Counsil acknowledged her claim, and granted her a seat.
Dresta sees Habololy as her
playground away from home. She envisions that one day; she will be
mistress of both worlds.
Her faithful try to please her
so that they might be taken to the glorious world above. They look to
sacrifice creatures of the sunlight to her. They have constant ceremonies
to praise her. They preach of her glory, and eliminate those who would
preach against Dresta.
Dresta’s role on the Counsil
is that of spoiler and obstructionist. Anything she sees as bettering
Habololy, she stands against. However, she does not want to see the world
destroyed, and therefore stands against the cults of Chaos and Amat. Her
faith pays special attention to the Cult of Wandle, whom Dresta calls a
rival; and to Arsur’anyodel, who is a constant thorn on her side.
The other deities and their
faithful pay close attention to Dresta. They fear what might happen if
her plans come to fruition. It is that fear that allows Arsur’anyodel to
remain on Habololy.

Dogma: It only takes
one look into the night sky to see the power of Dresta. She will one day
control everything that she sees below her. The path to power lies in
service to her. Those who die in her service receive great rewards.
Others who die will know their folly when Dresta rules the world.
