AMOTKEN

Creator God. A solitary but kindly old gent, he lives alone in heaven, pondering profoundly.

He once had five hairy daughters. Perhaps we should re-phrase that. He had five daughters created from five hairs pulled from his head. After a bit of doting he asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. He would refuse them nothing.

Daughter number 1 chose to be Mother of Evil.
Number 2 : Mother of Good.
Number 3 : Mother of Earth.
Number 4 : Mother of Fire
Number 5 : Mother of Water.

To prevent any squabbling he decreed they should take it in turn to rule for a day and a night, starting with Number 1. Naturally this is on a godly timescale — the blink of an eye for them is thousands of years to us. And so Number 1, the Mother of Evil, is still in charge.

Meanwhile, AMOTKEN is still wondering what to have for breakfast. He did let COYOTE out for his morning run, to report on how earthly things are going, but he's not expected back for some time.
