Origin: Italian, pre-Roman

Adeona is the Spirit of Safe and Speedy Returns. She is indigenous to the Roman region but predates the Romans. (In other words, they found her there.) She often works in conjunction with her sister, Abeona, Spirit of Departures. Together they provide for the safety of travelers in general, but especially of children away from home for the first time. Adeona ensures that they return home safely. Abeona and Adeona can be petitioned together to guard a child who journeys back and forth from home daily.

If a child is forcibly removed from home whether by kidnap or other means, Adeona is an appropriate spirit to petition for protection and a speedy, safe return.
