They are commonly high ranking earth goddesses, mother goddesses and/or fertility goddesses of various pantheons. These goddesses fit the description of an earth mother deity. Also they are generally the female consort of a chaotic deity, such as Parvati/Durga/Kali, being the wives of Shiva, and Kushinada-hime, being the wife of Susano-o. They may still maintain a benevolent personality, but not always. Ladies are less apt at healing than the Megami race, but have more variety with their spells.
Like most goddesses, Ladies are not very good at using physical attacks. They wield a wide range of magic, usually offensive and defensive spells. Ladies, like all light-aligned races, are difficult to fuse.

"Mothers of the Earth itself. They give unconditional love, compassion, and nurturing. But when human blood is spilled, they stain everything in its vengeful color, especially when that blood belongs to their sons or guardians… Perhaps in ancient times, blood was associated with healing as well as harm."
