"Mother" Mah is the youngest of the Elder Gods, as well as the weakest, and is responsible for creating Zaros, Seren, the Mahjarrat tribe, and the Muspah, and is the only known Elder God to have deliberately created life for purposes other than protecting Elder Artefacts or building worlds. She also created the Mahserrat and Chelon-Mah tribes, although the Mahjarrat came first.
Wahisietel (as Ali the Wise) first mentioned her in Tale of the Muspah as a "cruel and archaic creator-god" who created the Muspah, which is further elaborated on in Wahisietel's memory from the Mahjarrat Memories miniquest. Mah also makes an appearance in Fate of the Gods, first dormant on Freneskae, but awakening eventually.
According to Mahjarrat legends, she is an evil goddess that is said to have created the Mahjarrat atop a volcano, which led the Mahjarrat to call her Mother Mah. Apparently, ancient Mahjarrat were said to take a pilgrimage to the volcano in order to speak with her and learn magic, construction and other aspects of survival. When she slept deeply, hordes of Muspah - powerful beings created by combining her most fearsome creatures - are said to have spawned from her dreams, with the only known way to stop them being performing the Ritual of Rejuvenation to awaken her. When she got angry, she is said to have created earthquakes and avalanches, with the similar Ritual of Enervation, or reproduction, being the only way to calm her and prevent it.
Wahisietel believes her to be nothing but a myth, as both she and the Muspahs had not been sighted for thousands of years before his birth. Despite this, both the Rituals of Rejuvenation and Enervation remained part of Mahjarrat culture while they remained on Freneskae. Upon being approached by the Menaphite gods Icthlarin and Amascut, the Mahjarrat voted to leave Freneskae for Gielinor. After Amascut was disgusted by the Mahjarrat and went into Mah's volcano, a "great bellowing roar" came from it and rocks rained from the sky. While unable to prove it, the Mahjarrat Bilrach believed it to be caused by Mah. 
When the Mahjarrat arrived on Gielinor, and when Azzanadra told Zaros of Mah, he did not question her existence, and on his suggestion, they resumed the rituals, as on Gielinor, the Ritual would instead rejuvenate the Mahjarrat. While the modern Mahjarrat disputed whether or not Mother Mah truly existed, they continued to mate only during earthquakes due to the legend.
Unlike the other elder gods, it is said that she preferred to work on her own. In truth, she was thought stillborn by the other Elder Gods and was left abandoned on Freneskae. However, she survived and took residence there. The lack of Anima Mundi severely stunted her mental capacity, and she created Zaros and Seren to be her dolls. Zaros eventually came to resent Mah, and he departed Freneskae, while Seren stayed behind, attempting to care for her creator as best as she could.
Each day, Mah became weaker and weaker due to the lack of anima. She slowly fell comatose, having frequent nightmares. Her nightmares would cause horrific creatures to form, as well as cause earthquakes and other assorted natural disasters. Occasionally Mah becomes semiconscious, but does nothing but scream and hurt herself and the planet. For these times, Seren taught the Mahjarrat to drain Mah's energy and create more of themselves. This would return her to sleep, easing her pain and preventing destruction. Unable to help Mah any further, Seren left.
After countless nightmares and dreams about Zaros and Seren, Mah finally awakens in the Sixth Age of Gielinor. During Fate of the Gods, when an adventurer travels to Freneskae to either help or sabotage Zaros, the Elder God stirs, first unconsciously sending muspahs to attack the adventurer during a nightmare, before finally becoming fully conscious. Screaming in a fit of unparalleled rage, she tries to attack the adventurer and Zaros, but the latter teleports them away to safety just before Mah could crush them. It is currently unknown whether or not she is still awake, or if the lack of anima has caused her to fall back into a comatose state.
It is stated by Mod Rowley that if Mah hadn't been stillborn, there wouldn't have been any mortal life. Mah would understand the potential for life to become conscious, and would have suppressed it in previous cycles (whether instinctively or knowingly). The Dragonkin homeworld was therefore possibly the last one created before Freneskae, and this should have set off alarm calls that whatever led to Mah's current condition actually started back then. Rowley also suggests that Mah always carried a sense of childlike wonder, with Jas as the font of wisdom and experience. What Mah's corruption and lack of Anima Mundi actually caused was predominantly the loss of memory.
