Description[edit | edit source]
Thassa is associated with aquatic creatures, the "secrets of the briny deep", ancient knowledge, murmurs, gradual change, the passage of time, introspection, vast distances, long voyages, far-ranging searches and patterns. Her most overt role is that of a sea goddess, and gradually changing the world's coastlines. Thassa wielded the bident Dekella, until it was stolen by the planeswalker Kiora. Tritons and the humans of Meletis comprise most of Thassa's worshippers, as well as all who venture out to sea, whether for exploration, commerce, or war.

Inspiration[edit | edit source]
The character of Thassa is inspired by a conflation of various greek aquatic deities, most notably by Poseidon, god of the sea. She is also close to the primordial goddess of the sea Thalassa (even with name).
