Search for 'Oshtur' on Amazon

Oshtur possesses vast magical power. She is associated with the element of air, intellect, and reason. Her "mighty hands" and "omnipotence" are usually noted by magicians.

Oshtur is an Elder Goddess born from the demiurge sometime billions of years ago. Unlike her siblings, Oshtur had a fascination with the realms beyond Earth. She took to the heavens before the fall of the Elder Gods and their degeneration into malevolent demons. It is unkown for how long Oshtur left earth, but it is presumed to be millions of years. While exploring the universe, she met a companion in Hoggoth, one of the founders of the later Vishanti. Again, it is not known when or where Oshtur and Hoggoth discovered each other.

After witnessing children play, Oshtur was moved and gave birth to Agamotto. She instructed Agamotto then left him to undertake the paths of magic.

With Agamotto and Hoggoth, she formed the Vishanti.

Oshtur is also responsible for creating the Tome of Oshtur and the Book of the Vishanti.

Oshtur is credited as the creator of the Book of the Vishanti, a tomb of untold power comparable to the Darkhold, but based in white magic.
