Lyon (to Lyon worshipers)
Anila is one of The Four Winds and commander of the eastern winds.
Lyons depict her as a squat and heavily-built one, but both always have her completely covered in armor with visible fur dyed blue – her face is never seen
Utans depict her as a bulky beast.
She is heavily associated with those needing protection, and so is always shown in armor, in all sects that worship her. Her negative aspect is that of extreme anger – she is short-tempered and sometimes spiteful, and can be easily provoked by ‘poor’ offerings; often it is said it is better to give her nothing than to give her something that she would see as insulting.
Among Lyons, she is often said to be Jyotis and depicted as male or even hermaphroditic by smaller sects.
