Samonta, also called Severea by the old people of the northwest, is a deity of Hieron.
Her realm is all living things, but especially wolves. When you make a movement in her presence, you feel that she has willed it so. She blows the wind in our sails. She is associated with ships, trade, roads, and doors, though there is some debate about doors made of various materials.
Samonta is bald, with fin-like ears, and wears a dress of many shades of blue. Both she and the dress move as if underwater. She is often represented on mastheads.
- Ontday is named after her.
- The center of government in Velas's Garden District, Severea Hall, is named for her.
- The tower on Eventide Island has been referred to as the Tower of Severea.
