Widening Circles: Stri – a minor deity for Freeya

Kreis mit 6 Kanten
Time of the lower circles, the sixth day.

Stri is a minor circle deity of Tharn. The ruler said: “Of course I am allowed to keep the tiger in the cage, he belongs to me!” Tharn later spoke: “Of course is the tiger allowed to sink his teeth into the ruler, they belong to him!”. Stri, the tiger whose cage Tharn opened, embodies unbridled strength and the principle of might makes right. Aside from Tharn, who freed him and elevated him into the lower circle, both Valan and Relthea, too, are close to Stri. In Nilanir, Stri’s homeland, Relthea’s influence on his cult has gradually grown stronger over time and now nearly outweighs that of Tharn himself, while their brother Valan plays almost no role there. In other parts of Freeya, though, Valan’s connection to Stri is substantially stronger and Relthea is paid little heed in the worship of the divine tiger.
