Athulua is the prime deity of the Askari pantheon. Along with her consort Kethryes, she rules over the seasons and weather.[1]

When an Askari warrior has proven their devotion to Athulua through her brave deeds and exceptional skill in battle, the goddess shows her favor by granting a spiritual emissary to aid the Amazon; a Valkyrie.[2] Devoted disciples of Athulua can, with great difficulty and strict discipline, train themselves to fire their arrows at targets blindly, as if the hand of Athulua herself guided the arrows.[3]

The Initiates of Athulua are an Askari group that bears her namesake,[4] as does the city of Tran Athulua. The city was laid siege to by pirates of the Twin Seas, and the defenders ran out of arrows after months of fighting. The priests of the city prayed for deliverance, and in response, Athulua infused the minds of the Amazons with the power to harness their natural spiritual energies. One by one the archers melded their determination and will into shards of physical force that they then unleashed from their bows by the thousands, firmly routing the corsairs back to sea.[3]
