As the wife of Moradin, Berronar Truesilver'd seem to be relegated to a secondary position in the pantheon. Not true. She may be called the Matron, but she's not one to take any guff; as the goddess of safety and healing (not to mention marriage and partnership), her domain extends throughout dwarven life.

She guards it well, too - Berronar settles any disagreements among the pantheon without the involvement of her husband. Her skills at persuasion are such that she can make two foes understand each other and set aside their differences. At least, that's usually the case. Her major "failing" was not reaching a compromise with their dark cousins, the derro and the duergar. She couldn't have won them back, really, but she grieves for them nonetheless.

Berronar is the gentle side of dwarven nature, merciful and generous. But any berk who thinks she can be pushed around had better think again. Like any dwarf, she's hard-headed and practical, and she goes to almost any extreme to protect her charges. Chant is she got that way because, long ago, the exile Laduguer tricked her into aiding him by playing on her sympathy. Nowadays, Berronar gives no quarter to anyone.

While her influence is the shared realm of Erackinor is more subtle than her husband's, it's just as pervasive. Berronar stops the more stubborn dwarves from rushing out to smite imagined evils, and keeps Erackinor a place that any dwarf'd want to return to after a hard time of it.

Fact is, her influence is what makes the realm a place of beauty as well as strength. She's the one who provides for the comforts of the dwarven spirit, the one who gives the people the shining edge they need to keep themselves joyful in their work.
