The trickster of the Highmost Four.
Tana is the voice of the opposition, offering a glimpse into the chaos of the other side of thee alignment. She offers dissent and challenge to the otherwise altruistic group of deities. She is a wild card, but she is necessary. Without her, they would lose touch with that which does not fall into their norm.
Paladins cannot serve under the whims of Tana, but rogues and bards often have some desire to learn of her. Clerics of Tana are often whimsical and loose-lipped, enjoying the moment rather than preparing for worrying over the future.
Other than the swathe of her flames, the Rapturous Flame has kept her role in the Cataclysm a secret. Many theories place her in different roles. A commonly held belief is that she tricked the Brood into running all of the races into the same area so that Altus could save them all at once.
She makes the city of Celestair in Heavenrealm her home.

Some evil creatures despise the goddess for this, while others of varied alignment see this as something of an intelligent “business-like” move on her part, respecting her for it.
