Rank 0 - Nivå 1
Lamashtu (pronounced lah-MAHSH-too is the mother and patroness of many misshapen and malformed creatures that crawl, slither, or flap on, above, or below the surface of Golarion. Her unholy symbol is a three-eyed jackal head, which may be represented in many ways, and her sacred animal is the jackal. 
Rank 1 - Nivå 2
Gnolls claim that when Lamashtu first saw the hyena, she took it as her consort and the original gnoll was born. Each kind of creature that serves her has a similar story citing the Mother of Monsters as the race’s progenitor with some beast.
Rank 3 - Nivå 3
Utseende til Guden, Rank 3
Lamashtu’s crude depictions usually paint her as a jackal-headed woman with long, feathered wings, taloned feet, and a great swollen belly. Such images frequently include a multitude of monsters gathering to her call, with the favored rising above the rest.
Lamashtu’s true form is a pregnant woman with a three-eyed jackal head, taloned bird legs, and black hawk wings. The state of her pregnancy varies, but she is always visibly pregnant—often hugely so—though this never affects her mobility. She carries two blades: one shrouded in fire called Redlust; and the other in frost called Chillheart.
Her herald is the Yethazamari, a winged jackal with a snake’s tail and empty eye sockets that emit smoke.

Lamashtu considers all other gods enemies, although she focuses her energy on nurturing her children and expanding the lands for them to inhabit. She knows Desna hates her for killing the god Curchanus and stealing his beast portfolio as well as for her nightmarish aspect, but Lamashtu treats Desna as beneath her notice. Her greatest foes are Urgathoa, Rovagug, and the demon lord Pazuzu.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 3
Those who worship the Mother of Monsters seek out deformity both in themselves and others. Scarring rituals and mutilation are common among the faithful. Although typically venerated by monstrous races such as gnolls, medusas, and goblins, some human cults practice her dark litanies in secret, promoting tainted births and destroying works of beauty. Some use magic to become more hideous or beastlike in appearance, while her monstrous followers do the opposite to spy on city-dwellers.
Lamashtu’s faith is ancient, yet still very primitive in its beliefs and habits. A priest (cleric, druid, adept, or even a thaumaturge) must make sure the members of his tribe are strong in their faith, tend to their physical injuries (especially those whose deformities are a significant hindrance), and spiritually guide them.
Services to Lamashtu include howling, screaming, branding, bloodletting, childbirth, intoxication, and sacrificing humanoids or animals. The use of music is limited to a throbbing drumbeat to set the tempo. Services take place at night or underground.

The church is scattered and lacks an overall hierarchy.
Rank 5 - Nivå 4
Utseende til Guden, Rank 5
The length of each blade varies from that of a standard kukri to that of a falchion. When the Mother of Beasts is angry, her victims suffer painful joints, infections, or nightmares. For her worshipers, giving birth to an untainted child or one of a “prettier” race (such as a gnoll giving birth to a human or elf ) is a sign of great disfavor and shame.
She is called the Demon Queen, the Mother of Beasts, and the Demon Mother. Despite her titles, she is not the creator of the demon race as a whole, though many such fiends serve her and she herself sprung from the depths of the Abyss. Seven powerful demonic sorceresses called the Seven Witches serve her and may be her most powerful daughters.
Other demon types born of her madness include the yaenit (humanoid hyenas resembling corrupted hound archons) and the shemhazian (Gargantuan, multi-eyed, beast-insect brutes). Notable demons who serve her are Bloodmaw (a vicious and intelligent yeth hound) and the Prince of Madness (a yaenit blackguard).

Her priests use magic, faith, and flesh to soothe disputes and settle arguments. They typically have multiple children from different partners over the course of a lifetime and mate often as part of their ministering. This promiscuity is expected in the same way that a cleric is expected to heal a physical wound.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 5
Most priests have strong ties to their community and aren’t encountered alone. A typical day for a priest involves blessing the tribe’s food, prayer, performing rites for pregnant tribe members, and examining the tribe’s livestock. They usually help with other tasks as appropriate to ability, such as hunting or preparing food. A cleric normally prepares spells after the evening’s tribal rituals. The cult is notable for the Ashvawg tamers, who specialize in befriending strange beasts.
Ritual garb includes a jackal mask made of leather or precious metal, a cloak of black feathers, and a pair of swords or knives decorated to resemble the Demon Queen’s own weapons.
Om Guden, Rank 5
A monstrous and terrifying deity born from the depths of madness, she is both fiendish queen and revered mother to the horrors that stalk the night. From her womb sprang many of Golarion’s monstrous races. Her dominion over beasts (stolen from her murdered god-foe, Curchanus) makes the wilderness a fearsome place, while her nightmares invade the peace of sleep. She tore out her own womb and feasted upon it to gain power over the unborn, then regenerated her flesh by consuming a thousand stolen infants. Her milk can sustain, poison, or even transform those who drink it. She steals seed from men while they sleep and uses it to create half-breed monsters she later sends to shame and wound their fathers. Her touch and breath cause stillbirths and infant deformities, and those who suffer it are usually plagued by nightmares.

Her holy “text” is the Skull of Mashag, a magical skull that recites her doctrine.

The Demon Queen’s church operates on the outskirts of civilization. Most primitive humanoids worship her outside or underground, usually at flat, bloodstained rocks suitable for sacrifices or more ornate rings of stones, trees, or logs carved with the goddess’s image. Some use a deep hole in the ground or some sort of chasm representing an entrance to the goddess’s underworld realm.
Rank 7 - Nivå 5
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 7
Priests are responsible for teaching the young about the Mother of Monsters and making sure they understand her importance in their lives. They are not averse to using their powers to punish reluctant children, either with painful physical transformations or by plaguing them with horrible nightmares.
Om Guden, Rank 7
Her goal is to create evil and chaos by twisting the flesh and spirit of all creatures into misshapen things until the entire world is her altered brood, an enormous, monstrous family devoted to her. Lamashtu revels in destroying the most innocent, whether by defiling their flesh or tainting their minds; to her, a nursery is a banquet. She is a fertility goddess, but while those who pray to her are more likely to survive childbirth, their offspring are inevitably tainted. Offering someone else’s newborn as a sacrifice to protect your own is a viable practice for the desperate, and many stories of “changelings” (infants stolen and replaced with wicked faeriekind) are actually Lamashtu-altered infants who appear normal and then transform overnight into monsters.
Rank 10 - Nivå 6
Kirken av Rank 10
The church is scattered and lacks an overall hierarchy. In the rare conf licts between priests, they compare scars, number of offspring, malformations, and magical power (in that order) to determine who is superior.
