When beset by enemy gods, Iphara wrapped her power about her for protection, like a thick grey cloak. Since that time she has always appeared as fog, and within her body are held fearful mist-monsters and the powers of illusion. Sailors especially curse her. Sometimes the unlucky hear her mumbling and chuckling over her gruesome tally of ships sunk with their crew.
She is usually not shown in images or illustration, though fishers use billowing clouds of vapor to represent her in rituals. The Waertagi also show a beautiful woman wearing robes of tattered mist.
