The Mother of Darkness was a huge, tentacled, man-eating monster that lurked in the tunnels beneath the royal palace in the Turanian city of Aghrapur until it was killed by Conan. It guarded the king's treasure vault, and prisoners were fed to it by temple priests as a sacrifice. In addition to a bloated body and a great mass of writhing tentacles emerging from its head, this monster had a gaping fanged mouth and a huge single eye.[1] The stench that came out of its mouth was unbearable, as the monster had decomposed human bodies inside its intestines. Prisoners who were fed alive to the creature died a slow and horrible death, as they were slowly digested in its stomach and it took days before they died.
