Noted Lore: - As the aqahartis emerged from the sea and began spreading across the land, the Pure Spring realized that the species would only be able to survive on their own for a certain amount of time. Thus, the Pure Spring entered mortal realms and hid in the plains of Tifingor. When explorers or adventurers were close to death, it would reveal itself, allowing them to survive and tell a tale of wonder. It would then hide once more, providing an ever-growing mystery. It encouraged the aqahartis to expand, filling all available land. When the aqahartis had gone as far as they could, the Spring revealed itself, a pure source of water unlike any other. In that moment, as the saint Desnuris II set foot in its waters, the Spring expanded into time itself. All aqahartis throughout history, whether they knew it or not, entered its waters as they died, and all current and future aqahartis will continue to enter its waters as their life ends. Ever watching, ever watchful, the Pure Spring is the guardian of the aqahartis now and forever.
Conventional lore: - It is unknown to the Council if aqahartis do, indeed, enter the Pure Spring upon death (though it should be noted that there are far fewer aqahartis ghosts, zombies, or other forms of undead). That said, it is undeniable that the spring at the center of Tirinnoufin is magically fed. It is equally undeniable that the water from the spring is free of any impurities, and that the water does not come from another realm. As such, the Council is willing to grant that the Pure Spring is probably a true deity, and that all aqahartis should observe devotion to it.
