IMANAAlso known as IYAKARE, RUREMA, RUGIRA
Creator God with very long arms
He has lengthy limbs to distance himself from humanity after an annoying old lady messed up his immortality plans for mankind.He tried to do away with Mr Death, but some silly old woman hid him under her skirt. So IMANA said: "What the hell — you want him, you keep him".
Consequently, the Underworld now outnumbers the living world and IMANA has to do his best to keep the deadies from creeping through the cracks.
