Luthic is the orcish goddess of Fertility, Medicine, Females, and Servitude. Luthic embodies the orcish feminine ideal, subordinate to male orcs but still protecting the cohesion of orcish society. Her sacred animal is the cave bear. Her symbol is an orcish rune meaning "home."

Description

Luthic is described as a matronly orc with very long claws. She fights bare-handed because only the males of the community are allowed to wield a weapon. She may also use powerful spells, as such arts are not considered manly in orcish culture.

Relationships

Luthic is the wife of Gruumsh and mother of Bahgtru.

Realm

Luthic lives in the orcish realm of Nishrek, on the plane of Acheron.
