Does Heler play any role in Orlanthi worship outside Dragon Pass and Maniria in general, except as a "name god" who is known but not worshipped for magic?

The reason I ask: _Storm Tribe_ says that the only Helerings who survived the Darkness were along the Manirian coast, and in Dragon Pass he's associated with specific weather patterns that come from that area. So most Orlanthi outside of Dragon Pass and Maniria would know Heler, if at all, only through Theyalan missionaries. He's not a Lightbringer, so he might not have been a big deal to the Theyalans.

On the other hand, people need rain everywhere, and they have sheep as well. Is Heler still the god for those functions outside of Dragon Pass and Maniria, or are they taken over by Orlanth subcults or something else?
