Fountain of the Lost Children
The city of Felleg’Avin is known for its many beautiful fountains, which act as landmarks and provide clean water to the public. One of the most famous is the Fountain of the Lost Children, a 12’ tall marble edifice of Vincseya. The goddess wraps one arm protectively around several children and extends her other hand skyward, shooting water high into the air. The fountain relates a piece of ancient, sacred folklore.
In the days before the city when the Faraway Brothers were at war, Vincseya wandered the land helping those she could, appalled by the destruction. She came upon two lost children whom she took into her care. While searching for their parents she met more lost children, many of them orphans. Eventually she led dozens of children across the war-torn countryside, never stopping until she had reunited each with a parent or relative.
Today her priests say this experience was the turning point which led Vincseya to confront the warlords and end the bloodshed once and for all. Local tradition holds that if parent and child become separated in the bustle of the busy city, they should seek out the fountain to find each other; so even now the goddess is helping children find their families.
