Huwauth is an impatient, spiteful, and cantankerous deity. She loves to gossip about people behind their back, and to manipulate others. She enjoys people being cursed and cursing others. Misdirection, confusion, and guile are her bread and butter. She is just as often worshiped out of fear as out of devotion. She appears as an ugly, old human crone in ragged black robes and bare feet. Her belt has countless bones and animal skulls tied to it. She has three eyes and is accompanied by her fiendish black cat familiar.
Her temples are independent covens that don't interact with each other very much. Her temples are secretive and hidden, the few cathedrals she does have are usually hidden deep in swamps or dense forests. Each coven is led by the most powerful cleric of that coven and has the title of Dark Oracle. Her church has the largest amount of witch and warlock followers out of all the evil gods. Her clerics make and spread evil magic of all kinds. They recruit and train evil sorcerers, wizards, witches, warlocks, etc. She has an order of druids that look after swamps, marshes, and bogs.
Clerics of Huwauth pray for spells at dusk. The only holy day is the 13th of Kinst. On that day they hold special religious rituals and perform evil magic. Sometimes they will conduct raids on their enemies on this holy day. Her clerics often multiclass as sorcerers, wizards, witches, warlocks, hexblades, and druids.
History/Relationships: Huwauth used to a mortal spellcaster. After she became powerful enough she convinced Callay Beren to be her sponsor for godhood. Callay Beren agreed because Huwauth had helped defend her followers and temples on numerous occasions. From there she worked her way up to being a lesser deity. Callay Beren, Luna Lass, and Huwauth form the Triple Spell. Her allies are Callay Beren and Luna Lass. Her enemies are Enbaros and Kortim. She is the servant of Callay Beren and reports to her.
