Dre'Ana, daughter of O'Ma, is the prime goddess venerated in the female dominant nation of Jechran. In this harsh environment, she reigns supreme as the main deity worshipped. Dre'Ana supports the belief that women can be capable warriors that are able to survive on their own and prosper. She favors the women in the world who are oppressed and in need of a rescue, often from themselves.

The teachings of Dre'Ana state that women must come to their own independence through hard work and unity. Through helping other women in need, a woman will come to know herself. Learning the warrior ways is a major stepping block towards achieving independence, for a woman who knows how to fight will be more able to assert herself and put forth her wishes.

The Church of Dre'Ana is a fairly loose organization of clerics of all rankings. Their most common purpose is that of aiding oppressed women. They go as far as to take in troubled ladies and teach them the ways of Dre'Ana's warriors. Once she is trained, she is expected to spread the knowledge to other women in need. Through this cycle, a greater good is achieved and the state of womanhood is preserved.

Each Church often functions with a small hierarchy. A leading priestess will govern the day to day affairs of the church and guide the training schedule for the "recruits". Once a warrior maiden is trained, they are given the option of serving the church either as a warrior or a priestess, or they are set free to train others as they see fit.

Dre'Ana has a temple in Elysia and both a temple and shrine in the T'Nanshi wilds.
