Creator God with a split personality

He's a God of two halves. In fact he is half good and half evil.

Having created the Universe he decided on a final bit of D.I.Y, and made Adro — the Earth.

Being a half-hearted God, he was something of a split personality, so split himself straight down the middle. Literally. Each half had one eye, half a mouth, one arm, and one leg. But no naughty bits. No half measures for him.

The good half remained in Heaven, while the nasty side became the snaky ADRO and took charge of earthly things. We don't know what the Heavenly half does because, with the division of interests, it didn't bother to keep in touch.
