Kitumu is the carnivorous Firefly Goddess, a godling known to the Kembe. She is usually dormant but may be awakened, at which time she demands copious human sacrifice:[1] she is not a forgiving goddess.[2]


In 4710 AR, Kitumu demanded the boy Mwonduk as sacrifice to stop the plague of fireflies she sent forth on the Mwangi Expanse. People considered the boy cursed.[3]


Kitumu sleeps in the Pyramid of Kitumu deep in the Mwangi Expanse.[4]


Kitumu appears as a blood-red firefly with four wings, two on each side, protected by a beetle-type carapace when not flying. Her wing span measures hundreds of feet and the wings are inscribed with unknown runes. A crimson light surrounds her.[5][6]


Kitumu may send out a swarm of fireflies that can reduce a tribe to bones in an horrifyingly short time. They can bury beneath armour and get to the fleshy bits with ease. These fireflies are used to show Kitumu's displeasure.[6]
