MORIMI

African Fire Goddess

Goddess of Bush Burning

Never mind MOSES and his burning issues, MORIMI is the real Goddess of setting the countryside on fire. She is invoked when flames are used to prepare the earth for new planting. You can imagine the health and safety issues she has to contend with. She may also have connections with military scorched-earth tactics.

GodNote: Sorry this Morimi article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
