Kthulhu woos young women with innate sorcerous gifts by entering their nightmares where he whispers demoniac secrets to them and claims that their magic is his gift to them. The dark knowledge he imparts may take months or even years and upon completion, his evil whisperings seek to make her his intended in a ceremony where she must sacrifice the person or thing she loves most to him and accept his mark, a third nipple.

There are those that find the strength to overcome Kthulhu's vile assaults and dark grooming but they are forced to pay yet another toll as he murders the sorcerous talent that drew him to them in the first place which may result in death (15% chance) or madness (60% chance).

A Maiden of Kthulhu often helps recruit others to his cults, acts as spies, and even works to help him enlist other young women by alienating them from those closest and making sure they find his dark idols. Maidens are also capable warriors in his name due to his eldritch lessons on folklore, sorcery, manipulation, and martial training.

Maidens have a Charisma of 17.

They are 2nd level Witches and 2nd level Bards.
