NATIVE AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of North America...

IYA

Native American Sickness God

Evil God of rampaging pestilence

He storms around carrying foul disease and plague to the four corners of the world. This isn’t for any particular reason — he just enjoys it. He also goes on a devouring rampage whenever the mood takes him.

He’s ICTINIKE’s brother, but not nearly so handsome. In fact he’s downright hideous. Avoid like the plague.
