Tearsong (? - 340 AC) was a Human female priestess of the Qué-Shu. She had jet black hair and sculpted features. He husband was Arrowthorn and together they had one daughter Goldmoon. She believed, as did most of her tribe that their ancestors became gods when they died. Tearsong was a descendant of Larken and Stormlight.
Life as a Priestess
Tearsong had at least three men trying to marry her: Arrowthorn, Loreman, and Oakheart. Loreman could not compete with Arrowthorn. A portion of the tribe wanted Oakheart to become the next chief but he was mysteriously killed. Since Arrowthorn was with a large group of people when it happened he was never accused of the crime. Shortly after, Arrowthorn and she were married.
When her daughter was very young, Tearsong died of a fever. The tribe believed that she became a god after that. The elaborate funeral banquet that followed was supposed to be a joyous occasion, but the tribe mourned her passing so greatly that it approached blasphemy. Her body was placed in the Hall of Sleeping Spirits.
Years later, Goldmoon made the ritual trip to the Hall of Sleeping Spirits. There Tearsong appeared to her and told her daughter that she is not a goddess and that the old gods were real. She then tells her that if she passes the tests she will be a true healer.
