Waukeen (pronounced wah-KEEN), or the Merchant's Friend, is the goddess of coins and wealth. She rules over deals done above and below the table and believes that mercantile trade is the best road to enrichment. Waukeen frowns upon destroying fine trade goods and favors those who oppose the propagation of malicious rumors that could harm someone's commerce.
