Do not make the mistake of thinking that you have to agree with people and their beliefs to defend them from injustice.
Belmelia Rauss is the wife of Heigard Rauss, a leader amongst the Hunter’s Take guild, as well as a devoted cleric to Elsabene Earthtender, the dwarven goddess of agriculture and growth. Although Belmelia tends to follow her husband’s lead, she is by no means subservient; indeed, her hard-headedness and independence is why Heigard fell in love with her in the first place.
First and foremost, Belmelia puts the needs of the weak and innocent ahead of all other things. She believes that, as a cleric of growth, it is her duty to especially protect the children of the world, as they are the key to the growth of the planet.
Belmelia performed admirably during the attack on the Valley of Chains. Although she kept the younger members alive, the loss of Leylam, Eza, and Bannet haunt her for many months. Still, however, she perseveres, and continues to dutifully serve in the Hunter’s Take guild alongside her husband.
