Tillith is the racial Patron of Halflings in Ylan. She is aligned along the poles of Creation and Goodness, and is often depicted alongside Maribor at Muriel’s feet. Due to Halflings’ strong historical association with the bountiful coastlines of their homeland in the Kingdom of Delos, Tillith’s iconography has always included nautical emblems: sailboats, seashells, seabirds, pearls, etc. Tales of her appearances in the Prime Material plane nearly always begin with her emergence from the sea.

Accordingly, she is also recognized as the Patron of the Seas and is worshipped more broadly by sailors, fishermen, mariners, and others who make their living on the waters of Ylan. Churches dedicated to Tillith are found in every coastal city in Ylan, and anywhere Halfling communities may be found.

The Patron Saint Bane is closely associated with Tillith, and is depicted as her son in some renderings of the pantheon.
