WEREAlso known as WUONA, WUONJI, WUONKWERE, WUONORU
Firm but fair Godfather deity
He's a good fatherly God, always around to listen to songs, accept sacrifices, answer prayers and be charmed by charms. He could be moonlighting somewhere more exciting under the name of Wuonkwere, but mostly he's a solid, reliable, slightly dull deity.Just don't try to take advantage of his good nature. For those times when discipline is absolutely necessary, he has a thunderbolt hanging on a nail behind the door of Heaven.
