Trouble-making Thunder God.The son of KANATI and SELU, he and his brother ENUMCLAW wrested secrets from spirits and used the knowledge to go around causing hassle.
KAPOONIS's special talent lay in his amazing ability to throw very heavy things. Which he did with reckless abandon. This caused no end of trouble until he and his brother were whisked away by an angry Sky Father to become the THUNDER-TWINS.
Now he makes thunder by throwing boulders across the sky, while his brother makes lightning.
