African Buffalo Goddess

Buffalo Goddess

She’s the daughter of Buffalo God ITHERTHER. They were buffaloes long before the herd instinct took effect.

They’re responsible for hunting and meat-eating, which seems rather daft behavior for edible deities. Nowadays it would probably be better to call them Burger Gods.
