the Light of Enlightenment
Metsyla was created by Yelm to teach others spiritual truths, he never left the site of his creation, and he spread his influence over Kralorela. Though Metsyla was always clear-sighted in his enlightenment, he never learned to be close to things, or to be wise, or to search his inner feelings for their truths. Similar traits mark his worshipers and have plagued the region for all of its history.
He is usually shown as a perfect sphere dressed in voluminous billowing robes with seventeen red ribbons on the empty sleeves. Sometimes Metsyla is rendered in a human form though with three eyes; two closed but with the third, upper eye, open. He usually floats above the ground.
