Is this a new alt-art PnP character, or a bit of lore I've forgotten about? Or something else?

Thank you! I guess that's the old alt-art Vanaah being described (based on the second picture at the bottom of that entry). Now I'm curious too.

The Death and Life goddesses are sisters, and are both 'good' gods within the pantheon of Indines. By day, Vanaah serves the goddess of life by protecting her homeland as a paladin. By night, she serves the goddess of death by hunting down monsters and the villains.

Each of the gods has a mortal avatar, and Vanaah is the avatar of Djare, the death goddess. When she uses her Divine Rush, she channels Djare's power to strike with supernatural speed and force. Her 'Death Walks' finisher should be visualized as a full transformation into the avatar of Djare.

By contrast, Kallimerina is the avatar of Sanghalia, the life/water goddess, and rules over the nation where they both live. Kallimerina is a cripple who heals and purifies with her touch, growing weaker as she gives away her own life to heal the land and her people.

There are other avatars wandering around, but we haven't met them just yet...
