The Demon Queen, Mother of Monsters, Mistress of Insanity, Grandmother Nightmare
Lamashtu is the Chaotic Evil mother and patroness of many misshapen and malformed creatures that crawl, slither, or flap on, above, or below the surface of Golarion. Lamashtu’s followers seek out deformity in themselves and in others, and perform scarring and mutilation on themselves and others. They detest traditional forms of beauty and seek to destroy or kill it whenever possible. Some intentionally make themselves more beast-like, with her non-human followers do the opposite to better blend in with the more civilized races.
Lamashtu was once a mighty demon lord who became the first such entity to achieve true godhood. It is claimed by many monstrous humanoid races that she was their first progenitor and creator. Lamashtu’s church is scattered and lacks an overall hierarchy, yet it is rare for two priest’s to come into direct conflict, as they recognize each other’s shared devotion and the hostility visited by those outside the religion.
