Images of Shivaska

Shivaska is the demon lord of aberrations (especially chokers), clocks, and imprisonment. She rules the abyssal realm known as the Winding Wood. Her symbol is a clock face split into 13 hours.[1]

Appearance

She appears as a four armed, four legged, presumably female choker with a massive mouth but no eyes in her head; instead she has a glowing red eye in the palm of each of her four hands. Her back sprouts a dozen chains, each ending in a barbed hook.[1]

Worshipers and cults

Shivaska is worshiped by chokers and other aberrations, but also by slavers and sadistic prison guards. Her cults delight in running orphanages, where they use the children as slave labour and keep them in line by allowing chokers and other such creatures to roam the halls at night. The children are told that if they misbehave the monsters will get them, which in this case is perfectly true.[1]

The kalavakus demon Yealek-Vor leads a cult of Shivaska in the long-forgotten dwarven Sky Citadel of Jormurdun in the Worldwound region of Frostmire. With the help of his duergar servants, Yealek-Vor searches for ancient artifacts in order to boost his patroness' standing among the competing demon lords vying for control of the Worldwound.[2]
