I have a similar Goddess in my world!
Eala the Swan-Lady
Goddess of Paradox, Free Will, Self-Confidence and Self-realization
Domains: Chaos, Fire, Good, Liberation, Water
Subdomains: Agathion, Azata, Freedom, Ice, Redemption, Revolution
She was a mortal ascended hero who really wanted what was right for the world and the thinking races. She really had faith in the divine, but as she came to know her world's gods better, she had to learn the hard way that even the "good" ones were childish, prepotent and abusive toward mortals- that was not what guides and parents should have been.
When she was offered divinity for her worthy deeds, Eala was inclined to refuse: she had been too disappointed by the gods. When they said that she could teach them to be human, and teach mortals to be divine at the same time, she accepted, but at one condition. She would be able to interfere with every deity's plans without consequences; and no deity would interfere with hers.
So today Eala keeps telling mortals not to listen any divine revelation, neither her own, but to do good trusting in their own conscience only. When someone free-willed and independent enough asks her for power -to help others and not themselves- she willingly grants it... but is ready to revoke it, should the misguided priest try to worship her or create a cult.
