ABASSI

African Creator God

Nigerian Creator God and Lord of the Sky

On the suggestion of his wife ATAI, ABASSI invented the first humans and somewhat nervously introduced them into the wild.

As he feared, the first couple quickly discovered sex, and pretty soon were doing their own creating. This created a terrible over-population problem, and made ABASSI feel rather insecure. So ATAI gave humanity two gifts, Argument and Death, to keep the numbers under control.
