Canoness Y'Dey
Matron of Saint Cuthbert
Matron of Saint Cuthbert

Canoness Y’dey maintains the largest temple in town. The aged cleric was instrumental in the fall of the Temple of Elemental Evil and its complete defeat a few years later. Y’dey suspects that there was more to that temple than met the eye. She is aware that a great demon lived within and is gone now, but she spends waking nights now and again wondering what “elemental evil” truly represented, and what was the truth behind the forces and funding of the temple. (She was told then, and it is thought by others now, that a demonic tyrant of the nearby lands of Iuz controlled the temple, but she personally finds that hard to believe.) No one can get in to see Y’dey without first speaking to Calmer, who casts Detect Evil on any wishing an audience.

The canoness played a pivotal part in the Battle of Emridy Meadows, with Elmo and his men at her side. Elmo's brother Otis, however, met his doom in that battle. Despite Y'dey's best efforts, Otis' soul had already departed for the afterlife by the time she was able to reach him with her divine power. The tragedy struck Elmo a harsh blow and he has given the temple and the canoness a wide berth ever since. She has few friends in Hommlet, mostly acquaintances and followers. Tinivias views the philosophy of the church with contempt, though he has limited respect for the canoness herself. Zeke, on the other hand, admires the heroic woman a great deal and has requested her assistance in divining the location of his parents' killers. Thus far, he has yet to overcome the bureaucratic red tape (read Calmer) to speak with Y'dey herself, but perhaps by achieving greater notoriety, he may yet obtain his audience…
