Azeyma is keeper of the sun and goddess of inquiry. She commands the element of fire and is associated with the ninth moon of the Eorzean calendar.

Mythology

Azeyma is the daughter of Althyk, and the elder sister of Menphina. She is most often depicted as a noble lady holding a golden fan. Her symbol is the radiant sun.

According to the Faith of The Twelve, Azeyma's sun was the source of heat that fired the golden bricks that Nald'thal used to build the sprawling city of the Heaven of Fire, the resting place for the just and fair, the honest and the philanthropic. The rubble from this city was cast into the Pit and set alight, burning those condemned to the Hell of Fire for judging others wrongly, tricked their customers, or those who gave and received douceurs.

Worship Practices and Organizations

The Seekers of the Sun tribe of the Miqo'te worship Azeyma for her light and warmth, and the fallen sultanate of Belah'dia once worshiped her as well.

Holy Sites

The Mark of Azeyma can be found at Final Prayer, near the Burning Wall in Eastern Thanalan.

The Sunken Temple of Qarn was once a temple devoted to Azeyma, believed to have been constructed during the reign of Tatamefu II of Belah'dia. Architecture from the ruins of Belah'dia across Thanalan bear the Warden's mark, reflecting this.[1][2]
