Aldinach's main form is that of an enormous, golden scorpion as large as a house, whose claws are crystalline and razor-sharp. Underneath a towering carapace covered with myriad smaller scorpions, a horribly human head lodges.
History and relationships
Aldinach is one of Lamashtu's daughters from the time before the Mother of Monsters became a goddess, but there is little contact between them. On the other hand, Aldinach's sphinx-like half-sister, Areshkagal, is at constant war with her. Since stealing the Abyssal realm known as the Sea of Whispering Sands from Areshkagal, Aldinach has been on guard against armies from the Blood Clefts, the realm to where her sister was exiled. Areshkagal is desperate to regain her lost realm.
The demon lord rules over the Sea of Whispering Sands, a near-endless desert landscape, dotted with abandoned cities.
Worshipers and followers
Aldinach has few followers on the Material Plane, but since she is the demon lord of sand and scorpions, she has cults in Osirion's and Rahadoum's desert areas, as well as in the deserts of central Casmaron. Her followers prefer to congregate in the temples of abandoned cities, while in more civilized regions, they congregate underground in burrows and caves.
