Godchecker's mythology encyclopedia

Also known as NAZ, NZAMBI

Creator God and Mythological Soap Star

The story so far...

After consultation with the animals, NZAME creates the first man, Fam, who is blessed with power, wealth and immortality. And he turns out to be an arrogant cocky wastrel. NZAME buries him in a hole and tries again.

Second man Sekume, being made mortal, is far more modest, and humbly makes himself a wife out of a tree. (Her name is Mbongwe, which may or may not be of any importance in the long run.) Original man Fam, playing the immortality card, comes back from the dead to create trouble. End of episode one.

Next week, NZAME falls in love with new girl MBOYA, and they have a son called Bingo. Yes, Bingo.

There are many episodes of family quarrels, squabbles and feuds until NZAME, in a fit of rage, throws Bingo out of Heaven. (By now the soap was going on so long it needed a bit of fresh impetus.) Bingo is found by a wizard called Otoyom who secretly raises the Godly child.

NZAME, now repentant, searches together with MBOYA through many episodes to find their lost child, but Otoyom is always one magic step ahead of them. Bingo reaches adulthood and becomes a teacher to all mankind.

The saga continues. Will NZAME ever find him? Will he ever be reconciled to his parents? Will he ever confess to being MEBEGHE on his day off? What is Fam up to? Is Sekume still married to a tree? Meanwhile, back at the East End of Coronation Street, desperate housewives have moved in...
