Worm God


"Ur yearns for nurture. It does so through hunger."
Xita, the Nurturing Worm

Ur, the Ever-Hunger[1] is one of the five Worm Gods, ancient beings second only to the Darkness itself in the hierarchy of the Hive pantheon.[2]


The Ancient Past[edit]

Billions of years ago, Ur and the other Worm Gods - Eir, Xol, Akka, Yul, and their mother Xita - were imprisoned within the depths of the gas giant world Fundament. After millions of years, they were visited by Rhulk, Disciple of the Witness, who struck a bargain with Xita to conscript the Worm Gods into the service of the Witness in exchange for plentiful hosts in the form of the proto-Hive species known as the Krill. Xita was taken aboard Rhulk's Pyramid, while her five children were left in the depths to await discovery by the Krill.

Eventually, Ur and the other Worm Gods were visited by three Krill sisters, Aurash, Sathona and Xi Ro, who agreed to be implanted with the Worm Gods' larvae, gaining paracausal power and immortality while feeding the Worm Gods with tribute gained from fulfillment of their natures. This pact marked the birth of the Hive, who would go on to wreak carnage across the universe in the name of their gods.

At some point, Ur overheard Savathûn's scheme to alter the source of her tribute from destruction to the application of cunning, and was pleased by her plan.[3]


  • Ur was the name of a Sumerian city-state, where Abraham, a major figure in Christianity, Judaism and Islam had made pilgrimage from as an order from his God.
  • When In Anânh transforms into a Shade during the Broodhold strike, Guardians are given the warning that In Anânh reaches out to Ur, the Ever-Hunger..., implying that she worships the Worm God in some way.
