A name of one of the deities of Draconia. Her name is used periodically in conversation in times of shock, as one would say a deity's name in reality when under stress.
Her name is Loessa to the tigers, and Luasa to the dragons. She is the same deity, under different names.
My mental image of her is a tiger-striped dragon or winged tiger, both signifying her divided worshipers. She may have various forms depending on worshipper.
Gaia may have some ties to her, having once worn her tattoos in respect. And that after her death, the deity became very angry, killing hundreds in the city and the tigerlands. Luasa may strike again now that Meta has been stripped of her powers by the "will" of another deity enacted by Schaddig, who also removed Gaia's.
