Shalesh is a goddess upon the island of Montai in Eloria, worshipped by the islanders.  An ancient, pale giant, Shalesh lives in a cave near the the coast.  The goddess has no mouth, ears, or nose, but stares with large, all-seeing eyes on an otherwise blank face.  Her white skin is said to be hard as steel.  Six arms sprout from her torso, and upon each palm is a mouth.  Shalesh demands a child of the Montai sacrificed to her every year; each child is remade in her image, sprouting four extra arms and losing the mouth, nose, and ears.  The children are returned to the Montai as a warning against angering Shalesh.
