Mother Namtaru (also known as Great Namtaru) is a character featured in Dark Messiah of Might and Magic and Might & Magic: Heroes VI.


One of the strangest creatures to walk, or rather, scuttle the face of Ashan, the Mother Namtaru is a half-spiritual, half-physical incarnation of the nightmares of Asha, the Primordial Dragon of Order.
Like her lesser reflections, the Namtarus, she takes the form of a giant spider-woman hybrid, an aspect often associated with the deadly facet of Asha. Her three heads also echo Asha, who reigns over the three spheres of Life, Death and Fate.
Although held captive for hundreds of years by the Nagas, since her rescue by the Necromancers it is not vengeance, but a sacred oath to protect the cycle of life and death that seemingly derives the Mother Namtaru’s actions.
Worshipped by the Necromancers, who use her sacred venom to create their most powerful Vampire Lords among their own ranks, she regularly counsels her devotees though whisper, rhyme, and even dream.
Her powers are so great that they place her almost on the level of the six Elemental Dragons.

Mother Namtaru is a powerful deity of the Spider Goddess. Many necromancers worship her, as she is one of few creatures that have a direct link to Asha. Originally from an island near the Pao Islands, she was discovered and brought to Heresh by Sveltana and Aguirre. She only wants order and can sense if demons are nearby.
