Mowri was a goddess also known as the 'Lady of Beggars, Slaves and Serfs'[1] and the 'Lady of the Poor'.[2]

In Gardens of the Moon[]

Crokus Younghand thought to himself that noblewoman Challice D'Arle had never known the Lady of Beggars' touch.[3]

After achieving a long sought justice at Lady Simtal's Fête, Murillio was filled with regret. Nearly overwhelmed, he whispered to Mowri. By his own admission it was as close to a prayer as he had ever uttered.[4]

In Memories of Ice[]

Hood told Quick Ben that Mowri had betrayed the pantheon and affiliated herself with the House of Chains. She had embraced the Three, taking up the positions of Cripple, Leper, and Fool.[5]

In Reaper's Gale[]

While Toc the Younger was trying to explain the confusing relationship between the Malazans and their gods, Redmask brought up the phrase "Mowri fend". Much as the Malazans referred to "Hood's breath" for a god who had no breath, or "Beru's mercy" for a god who had none, "Mowri fend" referred to how the Lady of the Poor fended off nothing.[2]

In Dancer's Lament[]

In the period before the formation of the Malazan Empire, the primary religious festival of Li Heng on Quon Tali was a procession honoring the city's patron goddess, Burn. The procession was comprised of heavy platforms mainly carrying effigies of the sleeping Burn, but also including icons and shrines dedicated to other entities. These deities shared with Burn aspects related to "fate, futurity and the struggle of life and death", and included: Mowri; the Queen of Dreams; D'rek; and Poliel.[6]
