History of the Cult
In the past, during the Ages of the High Kings, Carman Fea was indeed seen as primarily a War Goddess, the Swordmaidens being testament to that. With the Death of the Last High King, the worship shifted to her other aspects, the cities now putting more value on her as a Goddess of Commerce and Science rather then War, while Rhiannon stayed a more rural Goddess.
Held in high regard amongst scientists, philosophers and other people, who work in scientific of engineering fields, as well as amongst soldiers and everyone fancying oneself as a warrior, Carman Fea is one of the most worshipped goddesses, right after Rhiannon. Most of her worshippers indeed are scientists, dimplomats, traders and doctors.
While many foreigners tend to see her as primarily a War-Goddess, that is not the case amongst the Selkie - in fact, Carman Fea's aspects are manyfold, namely Sciences, and all belonging to, including wisdom, Diplomacy, Medicine and Commerce, the latter together with Ladra.
