Portrait of a Goddess by SythraNightshade Portrait of a Goddess by SythraNightshade
As-dra is one of the main gods in my original world but she's feared and represents evil.
She is known as the mother of life and death since she created the world but also has the position of a devil in the christian belief.
Humans believe that As-dra catches the souls of bad or evil people on their way into the higher realm and eats them. After the conviction of the people, those souls then have no chance to enter the higher place and are trapped in the demons stomach for eternity. 
As-dra is the embodiment of ice and coldness and is generally illustrated as a demon. People also believe that she is to blame for bad winters and expresses her hate for them by letting them starve. However, she only cherishes hatred against humans; Vampires, werewolves and other demonic beings are under her protection and pray to her.
Her human worshipers believe that she is the mother of the world who was upset by her children, because they turned away from her to worship other gods. In anger she now punishes the people with winter, death and demons. Non-demonic worshipers believe they can earn back her affection by sympathizing with demons, but not become one of them. Some believe they have to return to the goddess before the world is swallowed up by her again. In addition to that, some groups make human sacrifices in the name of the goddess to calm her.

This is just some information that I have written down already :) I'm still working on the world and don't have everything figured out yet.
