Anyone claiming to have seen Eu is actually referring to the triple form, Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor, whose name is frequently shortened to Eu. This can be confusing for outsiders, but the Prydaen have no trouble keeping it straight.
Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor represents the totality of mortal experience and appears mainly to clan elders and priests -- or their non-Prydaen equivalents -- in the form of a renowned ancestor. The appearance of the divine entity to a younger person is usually an indication that they are destined for great things.
The Triquetra, a triple knot that can vary in form as much as the god. Typically, it looks like three petal-like or eye-like loops, arranged joined by one point in the center and often surrounded or intersected by a circle.
Entities of Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor
A collective concept, the triquetra symbolizes the trine of Eu, Demrris and Tenemlor. Depicted as a tri-pointed shape in base form, this representation varies widely in form, to range from a simple curving knot, to more intricately woven or interlaced depictions. Prydaen are especially fond of unbroken formations consisting of a woven single line with no apparent beginning or end, to create an abstract pattern or shape.

The triquetra is also the sole constellation the people gave name to, it being a trinity of stars bright during the summer months, but otherwise too dim to be seen. Also of great importance to our culture is the symbol of the three-spoked wheel, often spoken of as the Wheel of Life, and a part of our long-standing verbal history in works such as the Wheel Song. In crafted form, the triquetra as jewelry is cast in platinum and adorned with white gems such as opal, pearl, and moonstone, or very rarely with diamonds.
