Sedna is dangerous and wrathful lady of the sea. The folk say she commands a significant number of known and unknown sea demons, responsible for winds and sea currents.
Sedna is worshipped and (fearfully) respected by all inhabitants of the Continent who live off the sea – sailors, fishermen and merchants. Just after setting sail, they throw money into the waves to gain her favor. They offer her also people and animals who died on board, as well as all those who have committed severe crimes like murder or thievery – or have just brought bad luck to the ship.
The goddess does not possess significant temples nor influential priests, sailors claim that her temple is the sea as a whole. Their seat is thought to be located in the infamous Sedna Abyss – each time a ship vanishes, sailors from the whole Continent think the goddess is mad at humans.
