Estra is the mother of all things. It is said that when she created the universe, she felt so lonely in it that she created Cedos as a husband for herself. As they had more children, Estra came to be the ruler of the gods; she quickly grew disillusioned with her creations, and was about to destroy it all in order to start anew. Cedos showed her the goodness of certain creatures she had created in order to stay her hand. She made a deal with Cedos: she would not interfere in the workings of the world, but Cedos would have to let her leave until she was ready to come back to the world. Because he loved the universe so, Cedos agreed, giving up his wife so that others could live. Now, Estra has retired to somewhere beyond the planes, sleeping until the end of existence, when she will likely make another universe. As she has no contact with Maratus, she gives no clerics power, though any temple of Cedos will often have a peripheral temple for Estra.
