Djel is one of the gods worshiped by the Fjerdans. He is known as the wellspring, and his symbol is the ash tree. Fjerdan burial tradition involves burying their dead so that they might "take root", becoming roots of Djel's tree. The drüskelle believe that Djel's voice can be heard from the sacred white ash tree at the center of the White Island and that Djel anointed the first drüskelle. Some Fjerdans believe Djel, or another Fjerdan god, built the Ice Court.
