The Mother of the Sea was the chief deity worshiped by the indigenous people of Orkney in the 12th century BC. A force for all that was good, the Sea Mother ruled over the ocean with the Seafolk as her subjects. The Mother's chief enemy was the evil sky-god Lord Father Winter. Winter's minion Klevey infiltrated the Mother's realm and caused seafaring disasters. Due to being entangled with conflicts against Winter in other fields, the Mother could not spare the resources to definitively defeat Klevey.
