WERE
Also 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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Were graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Were movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Were statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Were. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
