Urgathoa (pronounced oor-gah-THO-ah) is the goddess of physical excess, disease, and the undead. She is mostly worshiped by dark necromancers and the undead. Sometimes those wishing to become undead and those who live gluttonous lifestyles make supplication to her. On occasion, folk infected with plagues make offerings to Urgathoa.
There are stories that suggest that Urgathoa was once a hedonistic mortal female. Upon her death, she fled Pharasma’s Boneyard and returned to Golarion, making her the Great Beyond’s first undead creature. Her return to the mortal world is said to be the origin of disease.
Among her enemies are Sarenrae and Pharasma, as well as their respective followers. She also comes into conflict with Abadar and Calistria. Calistria in particular is more of a friendly rival than an enemy, as they often fight over potential followers. She also hates followers of the Prophecies of Kalistrade, as their strict sexual and dietary restrictions run counter to her hedonism and gluttony.
