The word Mystra translates to Magic in language of the Celestials. Worship of Mystra is found in all cultures in the Realms all divine interpretations of Magic. Early texts don't refer to Mystra as a divine being rather as a primordial force- a fifth element. While these texts have never been discounted in the church, the Faith never questioned the priests feminine references to their god. Unlike other elemental faiths, Clerics of Mystra are granted spells and domains as defined under their doctrines and rituals. In Mystra's province is the patron of wizards: Azuth. Selune- who vistis the touch of Mystra upon those born under a full moon. And Nethys, the patron of Diviners.
