Lamashtu

Lamashtu is the mother and patroness of many misshapen and malformed creatures that crawl, slither, or flap on, above, or below the surface of Golarion.

Lamashtu was once a mighty demon lord. In ages past she lured a forgotten god into her territory and beset him with swarms of demons and other monsters until he was weak enough for her to attack him. By defeating him, she ripped his godly domain over beasts from him. This imbued the demoness with a small amount of his divine power. This attack was too much for the god to withstand, and he was killed as a result of the theft. As his final act, he passed on his dominion over travel to Desna, who had always treasured the tales of his journeys. It is said that this theft caused humans to lose their bond with animals, who thereafter only saw them with suspicion and mistrust.

She is called the Demon Queen, the Mother of Beasts, and the Demon Mother – but despite her titles, she isn't the creator of the demon race as a whole

“Great is the daughter of heaven who tortures infants. Her hand is a net, her embrace is death. She roars like a lion. She constantly howls like a demon-dog.”
— Lamashtain Prayer
