Lurue (pronounced luh-RUE [2]), also known as the Unicorn Queen or the Queen of Talking Beasts, was a chaotic good demipower who was often worshiped as a goddess of intelligent and talking beasts. Lurue taught that life was there to be lived, and one should live it with zest and flair. Adventures and quests should be taken on a whim and life should be filled with good times and laughter. She was worshiped by many unicorns, pegasi, and other intelligent non-humanoid creatures, as well as by romantic and swashbuckling adventurers. Although preferring adventure and exploration instead of battle, if forced into a fight she was an intractable foe.[citation needed]


Priests of Lurue were often chaotic neutral, neutral good, or chaotic good in alignment and prayed for their spells at midnight, most often in a moonlit glade. They were usually adventurers who traversed the land, seeking to better themselves by experiencing new things and righting wrongs. Lurue was said to use a unicorn horn as her weapon.[citation needed]


Lurue was often said to be the daughter of Selûne, and believed to be the daughter of Eachthighern as well.[3] She was the elder sister of Yathaghera, the Winged Queen.[3] She served Mielikki as both friend and steed.[3] She was a close ally with other benign nature deities like Shiallia, Gwaeron Windstrom, Nobanion, and Chauntea.[citation needed]

Lurue was loyal to Silvanus but at odds with Malar, for obvious reasons.[citation needed]
