Mayan Storm God

Also known as HARAKAN, HURRICAN, HURUKAN

God of Gale Force Winds

Yes, you’ve guessed it — HURACAN is the God who put hurricanes on the map.

It’s not many Mayan Gods who can claim their name is in common usage, but as a high-ranking Storm God and best buddy of HUNAB-KU he’s obviously very important.

Apart from stormy weather he also does a lot of Life-Creating. We understand he is also known as the One-Legged God, but no-one appears to know why. Perhaps we shouldn’t have mentioned it.
