Eyala Caestrade (408-428) is by now mainly remembered as the founder of the Heyin cult on the continent of Akdor. This cult, revering Heyin as the Mother of All Life and Bringer of Rain, began to spread gradually from Pendalu to the rest of Akdor, especially to the Aia Sphrin islands. Eyala was, however, much more than that. She was also a stateswoman, who tried to help the poor, and give women more rights. Her influence on Pendalu and the rest of western Akdor over the years was underrated in the beginning, but as time passed, historians became more and more interested in her intriguing person, and found out that she had changed the life in Pendalu greatly.
