Nitid is the goddess of tears and life, hunts and war, and her temples are too many to count. It is she who fills wombs, slows the hearts of the dying, and leads her children against the seraphim. Her light is like a small sun; it chases away shadows.
Ellai is more subtle. She is a trace, a phantom moon, and there are only a handful of nights each year when she alone takes the sky. These are called Ellai nights, and they are dark and star-scattered and good for furtive things. Ellai is the goddess of assassins and secret lovers. Temples to her are few, and hidden, like the one in the requiem grove in the hills above Loramendi.
my take on nitid and ellai from daughter of smoke and bone!! i thought they were really cool and wish laini taylor had told us more about them, haha. i dont know anything about fashion so their clothes may look a little weird, but i wanted to make nitid look more intricate and ellai more simple but also try to incorporate the whole assassins/lovers thing, haha. i tried to make them look like moons but they look more like ice people.
