Desna generally communicates with her followers through dreams, sending images, feelings, or even prophecies that stick in the recipient's mind after waking. Desna's favored animals include butterflies, moths , caterpillars , owls , sparrows , dragonflies , and messenger birds. Scouts, sailors, and those who travel for travel's sake make up a large amount of her following, though her domain of luck also makes her a favorite deity among gamblers and thieves. Desna pronounced DEZ-nuh  was one of the first deities, but while her peers burdened themselves with the task of creating Golarion she spent her time building the heavens. This possession of heroes just after their deaths was Aolar's penchant, especially when the dead person's soul could witness the suffering caused. Even though the worship of any other deity in that nation is illegal, Desnans have had some success in northern Nidal, in a region known as the Atteran Ranches. As he died he gifted Desna with the domain of travel; she has traveled the planes and worlds since, opposing both oppression and Lamashtu wherever she encounters them, and spreading her word while making an effort to experience new wonders when she can. Itinerant Desnans charted the circuit of stars and interpreted the dreams of wanderers who stayed the night in their shrines. Travelers often leave markings and dedications in newly discovered areas and secluded locales.
