Ulerian Immortality

Something hit me about the Uleria immortality quest.

Why must she have a heroquest for immortality? She was born as one of the
old gods, the infinite source for fertility. For Uleria, immortality was
achieved by being born immortal. If Uleria has a heroquest for immortality,
wouldn't it involve giving birth to an immortal child?

Also, wasn't she chewed up and her material form destroyed by the Boggles?
Wouldn't such a goddess instead have a heroquest so that the hero is
sacrificed to a group to bring some aspect of fertility/love/eros to that
group or another?
