Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

These boots bear the rising sun of Eothas, and they were first worn by a footsoldier in Saint Waidwen's army. The daughter of poor vorlas farmers, she was sickly and frail all of her life. Yet such was her devotion to Eothas that, when the Readceran army marched on the Dyrwood, she set off to join them against her family's warnings, traveling all the way to the White March on her own.

When she finally arrived at the army's camp, it is said that Saint Waidwen himself came out to greet the young woman, blessing her for her courage and endurance. Her boots were branded with the emblem of his army, and she continued across the mountains with the troops.

She disappeared, however, after the detonation of the Godhammer. Historians and folklorists disagree on whether she died in the explosion, remained in the Dyrwood, or met another fate on her way back to Readceras, but her boots somehow remained behind. Eothas' faithful often maintain that she ascended with the god himself at the end of the war, leaving only the shoes that had served her so faithfully.
