I thought that the Thunder Brothers were the minor descendants of Orlanth/Umath. Now you get the different aspects of Orlanth (E.g. OhOrlanth, Varanorlanth) as well, but you could treat them as devolved lesser forms of Orlanth.

I am not sure how many of the Thunder Brothers are from mortal stock. The likes of Vinga and Barntar have Orlanth and Ernalda as parents. I suppose Heort was half mortal and maybe Vingkot.

Well, Vinga is one of the Thunder Brothers, so I would guess that Brothers is a generic term to include the odd ones who don't follow Ernalda. Normally, Orlanth and Ernalda's daughters would be peaceful, stay at home, earthy types and would be subcults of Ernalda and her gang.
