NDRIANANAHARYAlso known as NDRIANANHARY, NDRIAN
Creator God of Mud and Optimism
His name means 'Life Comes From Me' which is appropriate enough. NDRIANANAHARY created the world from hot arid mud, but wasn't sure how habitable this was, so he sent his son ATAOKOLOINONA down for environmental checks. Unfortunately his son vanished without trace, so NDRIANANAHARY was forced to send mankind down and hope for the best.Now humans who die are supposed to return to Heaven for new instructions, but they seem to prefer it down here and never return. Such stick-in-the-muds.
Meanwhile ATAOKOLOINONA is still missing...
