Luthic, The Cave Mother

Type: God
Alignment: Chaotic Evil
Gender: Female
Sphere: Caves
Dominion: Nishrek
Priests: Shamans
Adjective: Luthican
Domain: Earth, Protection

Luthic has a strong affinity for the earth on which her enduring strength is built. Although hardly kind, she tends to the injured with brusque efficiency and is the quiet bedrock on which the orc pantheon rests. The Cave Mother does not take kindly to those who abuse her name, inflicting wasting diseases on those who do. She has a nasty temper that can erupt at any time. Although outwardly servile to the male orc gods, she is cunning enough to manipulate Gruumsh and Bahgtru and through them often get her way.
