JOUKAHAINEN

Finnish legendary mortal

Naïve young Lapland lad who challenged VAINAMOINEN to a singing contest.

As a successful rock musician, VAINAMOINEN made short work of this upstart wannabe and tossed him into a bog. Which is where all boy bands eventually end up.

JOUKAHAINEN was forced to pledge his sister AINO’s hands and feet in marriage, but she didn’t think much of VAINAMOINEN’s style and drowned herself. JOUKAHAINEN later took his revenge by shooting VAINAMOINEN’s horse, sending him into the icy seas of Pohjola.
