QI WAHCHA


Qi Wahcha, literally meaning "the wanderer," is perhaps the one greenlandish god that speaks, acts, and looks as a man does. They started the tradition and culture of sacred travelling across the green lands, and is considered the patron of all on the roads. They are often depicted in art with many faces, but what is consistent is that they are always a fellow worn down traveller, and they are always placing their left hand, with prayer beads wrapped around it, to their chest.

They're the patron of vagabonds, baby! I like them a lot out of the pantheon i've... made up... if only because compared to the rest of the greenlandish gods and spirits they are the only one who is, like, Just A Dude. You could meet any random stranger on the road then never see them again and it could be them. That's why I made them so mundane, honestly. They're the personification of the feeling elicited when you make a friend somewhere like at a water park as a kid or whatever then never meet them again, and you don't remember their name or likes but you ache for their presence. Or is that too specific an experience?


Image description: Art in greens, browns, and oranges, with heavy use of detailed linework, not unlike hatching. Qi Wahcha, a hooked nosed fellow with a stern look, feather in their hat, and bearing the look of a weary traveller, rises above the mountains and around the clouds. They hold their left hand delicately to their chest, and they have their right hand raised up and holding prayer beads. On the end of the prayer beads is a small, irregular diamond shaped charm, the traveller's charm which corresponds to their godly domain. END ID
