To Stand Against the Red Moon
High Priestess of Clearwine Temple
Yanioth Brandgorsdottir is the younger sister of the Brandgorssons, a trio of extremely influential Colymar leaders, two of whom served as King of the tribe in the 1580s and 90s (and who are now dead). She became high priestess of the Clearwine Temple after Starbrow’s Rebellion failed and Benava Chan, the high priestess as the time, was forced to resign the office. Her nephew Baranthos is now the chieftain of the Ernaldori clan.
She is an older woman, haughty and aristocratic, and proud of her lineage and position. Most think that she is deeply anti-Lunar, but either refuses to take action against the Lunars or does so very discretely. Even King Kangharl seems afraid of her. Her brother Dunorl is an important figure at Clearwine Fort, although he is now quite elderly.
Asta met her when she was becoming a devotee at Clearwine. in 1617, Tryggvi, Yaneg, and Yanioth spoke with Yanioth Brandgorsdottir and traded versions of Ernalda and the Cleansing Earth.
