MALSUMIS

Native American Evil God

Also known as MALSUM, MALSUN, MARTEN

Evil God of Petty Crime and Cheap Tricks

Even the laudable GLOOSKAP had a nasty evil twin brother and this is him. Rather wolfish.

He’s responsible for such dirty tricks as putting thorns on plants and giving the insects their sting. This twisted genius would probably even stoop to placing a thumbtack on your chair.
