Nosbalada is Queen of the Aperonian pantheon, represented by the moon. Created alongside her husband, Zin Aduro by The Creator, she is seen as a noble and caring figurehead. She is patron of wisdom, women, married couples, and oversees her children the Stars.

Appearance

Nosbalada is depicted as an elegant woman with flowing dark blue hair, light blue skin, and possesses True Sight. She is cloaked in her Midnight Cloak, which allows her to sheathe herself in darkness should she need to. Around her neck she wears a strand of pearls, each of which while staying on her neck and absorbing amounts of her power, eventually becomes a star she places in the heavens to watch the earth below. As the pearls grow stronger and gain independent thought, they grow brighter until Nosbalada finds a place for them in the sky.

Lunar Cycles

In Aperionian myth, it is said that each night Nosbalada walks through the sky so that her husband may rest during the night. However, the separation is taxing on both of them, so as the month progresses she becomes more and more distracted. Her attention to the world below is reflected in the waxing and waning of the moon.

When a new moon occurs, Nosbalada is meeting with her husband in the High Court, where he dwells during the night and she resides during the day. These nights, dubbed Blind Eves in popular culture, are perceived as some of the most dangerous nights each month, as Nosbalada is not watching and any evils can occur in the darkness.

Similarly, blue moons are considered especially fortuitous, as Nosbalada is paying special attention to the world below. Nights during which a blue moon occurs are some of the most religious nights in Aperion.

Cultural differences

Nosbalada's role varies significantly from culture to culture. In Aperion she is one of the most important gods, at the top of the pantheon and one of the most venerated figures. However, in Heruba her role is significantly smaller. Although in Vidbeli mythos she possesses an important role, she is not a figure of popular worship.

Titles

Nosbalada is typically referred to as Nosbalada, The Great Lady Nosbalada, The Noble Lady Nosbalada, The Wise One, or in a much more familiar manner as Bala.
