Well, it's more the "scary devouring matriarch" version of "Mother Goddess" than the maternal kind, but she's defined pretty much entirely through being a protective mother and Peter fitting her into his archetypes of West African Matriarch (With Scary Goddess Powers). (I haven't read Hanging Tree so maybe she gets to be more a person and less an archetype there, though.)
