As I progressed in my studies of the Orcaar’mil tribe, I found myself enthralled with another deity, the Mwongo Mogu. Alternatively known as the Siren Mother, the Mwongo Mogu is known to bend men to her will while extending their life.
I’ve recently learned that Orcaar’milian deities are not necessarily categorized as good or evil. They also aren’t truly seen as gods. This knowledge allowed me to understand the Mwongo Mogu better. Rather than a goddess, she is often referred to as a “cowo.” There isn’t an exact translation for the term, but writings lead me to believe it may mean “peer” when spoken by others on the pantheon.
The Mwongo Mogu is a cowo of health and deceit. She is often prayed to for better health and peace of mind, which she grants almost indiscriminately. However, like the Shi’ra Laglo, she has contradictory, often competing aspects in her depiction. The verso of her being is found in her siren song. To gather her followers, she often creates false stories to grab their interest. Stories say she once convinced a follower that fire was comforting. He immediately walked into a bonfire and fell asleep. She allowed him to burn, only to heal his wounds and gain him as a follower through other quality of life enhancements.
