Elda is a goddess in Crikland. She is the patron of Lake Crikmere, the Eldathyn and their "peaceful combat" system of, 'Herathor, squid, peace, pacifism, motherhood, mussels, sunfish and pond rainids themselves. She is the principal goddess of the Eldathyn. Her sacred animals: mussels, sunfish and squid, are the most important parts of the Delver diet. Sunfish are ubiquitous in Lake Crikmere, and are easy to catch. Mussels can easily be found along the stilts of Delverton and Gerragir, and squid spawn all across Lake Crikmere in the spring, and are considered the biggest delicacy of Delver cuisine.
