Death for Any Price
Ilu-Gwaith is one of the twin divines of the Khanate of Aladrim, along with Maralcar.

She is the patron of warriors of any stripe, from sellswords to soldiers to generals. She teaches victory through martial prowess, as well as the glory to be found in honourable battle. She is an uncomplicated deity, but much loved.
