Luthic (pronounced: /ˈlθɪkLOOTH-ick[3]) was the orc goddess of caves and the mate of Gruumsh.[8] She was often referred to as the Cave Mother.[citation needed]

DescriptionEdit

Luthic was the orc deity of fertility, medicine, females and servitude. She was the wife of Gruumsh and mother of Bahgtru. Her sacred animal was the cave bear. Her symbol was an orcish rune meaning "home." Luthic embodied the orcish feminine ideal, subordinate to male orcs but still protecting the cohesion of orcish society. Luthic was described as a matronly orc with very long claws. She fought bare-handed with her claws because only the males of the community were allowed to wield a weapon. She might also use powerful spells, as such arts were not considered manly in orcish culture.[citation needed]
