OGOAlso known as PALE-FOX
Horrifically horrible Dogon Trickster God
He is the Pale Fox, known locally as the Jackal, a creature despised by all. There are many foxy trickster deities, but none of them are quite so mouthwateringly awful.
Needless to say, his upbringing left much to be desired and the tortured twisted creature became the embodiment of Chaos. Seeking the power of speech, he tried an incestuous union with moist Mother Earth which brought impurity and barrenness to the world.
Now he rules the dry bushlands he created. He also seems to have a lot in common with the incestuous chaotic YURUGU. Coincidence?
