Anysti’s Spiritual Beliefs
As with many seafaring folk, Anysti leans toward having a superstitious streak, believing in what she has deemed the “Law of the Corsair”. In this, she pays close attention to minor problems, watching to see if they stack up in a short period of time, for she believes a pattern emerges to foreshadow a major issue. She will refuse to do a deal or make a major decision if she notices the pattern come into play.
Anysti refuses to deal in “god nonsense.” To her, they abandoned the world a long time ago and will never earn her praise. Instead, she has placed her “spiritual” beliefs in Fate and the Sea. She calls Fate the cold, hard mistress with a heavy hand, and refers to the Sea as a mother that embraces and gives life, but can punish and take away when one gets out-of-hand. To Anysti, both are given just as much reverence and respect as others give to their own gods and spirits of worship.
