EINGANA
Also known as EINGANU, DREAMTIME-SNAKE

Dreamtime Snake Goddess who gave birth to humanity

Her official title is Dreamtime Snake. Not to be confused with RAINBOW-SNAKE. She is the primordial Mother Goddess of DREAMTIME and the mother of humanity and all water animals. Yes, she is a snake. If you have issues with being descended from a reptile, please take it up with your nearest evolutionary biologist.

Initially EINGANA had a lot of trouble giving birth. To put it delicately, she didn't possess the requisite aperture. This was rectified by another deity, who obliged with a sharp spear in the appropriate place. Creatures great and small immediately issued forth — and so far they haven't stopped.

But EINGANA keeps hold of the mystical umbilical cord, attached to every living thing. When she cuts the cord, the creature dies. Luckily she usually takes a while to get around to it.

Apocalypse warning: If she herself should happen to die, everything would cease to exist. This worries us. Who's holding her umbilical cord then?
