Othea (known as Deronain in Auld Dwarvish and Sonnhild in ancient Thorass) was a goddess who married Annam All-Father and bore his children, who would become the origin of the giant race. She would later claim the cold vast plains with Annam's son Lanaxis.

Background[edit | edit source]
Othea was unfaithful to Annam, her husband. Circa −26,000 DR, she had an affair with Vaprak, resulting in the ogre race, and then c. −25,500 DR she had an affair with Ulutiu, shortly before the end of the giant war against the dragons, resulting in four sons: firbolg, fomorian, verbeeg, and voadkyn. Annam slew Ulutiu and hurled him into the Cold Sea. Othea was so upset by this that she refused to give Annam another child, but Annam tricked her to get her pregnant. They reached a compromise where Annam agreed to leave Abeir-Toril until the child called for him, in return Othea would not terminate the pregnancy.
Othea was poisoned by her son, Lanaxis, when she refused to let him save his citadel of Voninheim. Before she died, she cursed him, causing him to flee to Arborea. Her unborn son Hartkiller managed to survive.
