African Evil God

Also known as GUNAB

God of Evil

He is responsible for all misfortune, disease and death. Evil spirits and big horrible snakes a specialty.

He has many battles with arch-enemies GAMAB and TSUI-GOAB, and is still on the loose. So be careful out there.

GAUNAB is unspeakably evil — so we won’t speak about it. However, he did unexpectedly create the rainbow so he can’t be all bad.
