The Speaker of Shadows, a being composed of darkness, whose servants never sleep.

The Lady of Monsters, a body-less will that possesses pregnant women, whose cult modify their bodies in extreme ways

The Queen of Caves, a creature resembling a squid with human arms instead of tentacles, her cultists can only consume human flesh and blood after swearing an oat to her.

The Father of Destruction, a being who possesses the body of his current high priest, and whose cultists are all undead.

Demonic Traits

If someone is possessed by a demonic entity from beyond known time and space, its bound to mess with them a little bit. If you've got a character who just opened a magic puzzle box, or a high priest of some horrific eldritch being, and you wanna make them look weird, this is the table for you.
