Ebortsa's lucky charm
Ebortsa is now a minor daemon in the demonology of the Church of Giles the Creator. Once a major daemon, head of a large cohort of his fellows, he failed dismally to prevent the Holy Jens, Vicar of The Eight, Co-ordinator of the Celestial Codes of Creation from attaining the beatific state of Maximal Occultation. On being mobbed by his confederates, he was demoted to his current inferior status.
The Anniversary of the Auspicious Achievement celebrates the enhancement of the Holy Jens at the same time as it rejoices in the denigration of Ebortsa. In some systems such as Digebiti it is a major festival celebrated with domino-wearing, the playing of bassinets and the performances of maurice-dancers, who emulate the demon cohorts in their hounding of Ebortsa. The role of Ebortsa is usually given to a serf who is created a freeman on the conclusion of the festivities.
But in the days of his glory, Ebortsa endowed a large number of Talismans with the beneficence of luck. These talismans are understood to bestow benefits upon the unexperienced astrogators in The Eight for a brief period after their endowment. The rodentine races are understood to hold these talismans in great reverence.
On Tionisla, Ebortsa is worshipped as the goddess of nomads.
