Noted Lore: - One day, while wandering the mortal plains on her frequent travels to and from Astheris, Altheria came upon a rich warlord of Corinth. He was a shrewd man, firm in his business dealings and wise with his money. Those around him hated him for his wisdom and his wealth, as they were quite jealous that they could not ever hope to attain to such mortal glory. As such, they brought many schemes against him. He called out to the gods, and Altheria appeared to him. She offered her services free of charge, but he insisted on payment. He gave her a heaping pile of his wealth, and she ensured that no one ever harmed the man again. To this day, she offers her protection to the wealthy, ensuring that the oppressed elite never have to face destitution again.
Conventional lore: - Given the sheer number of miracles attributed to Altheria and the promptness of her responses, it is almost certain that she is indeed a proper deity. Many scholars believe that she may be somehow linked to the god Ral, though this is disputed in some circles. If this connection is false, it becomes uncertain what her motivation is, as gods have no particular use for mortal money.
