KWATEEAlso known as KIVATI, KWATYAT, XELAS
Cheerfully optimistic God of Transformation and Improvement
He did his best to change the ancient world for the better, despite a lot of opposition from his contemporaries. Whenever he saw something bad, he did something about it. Dirt was obviously a bad thing, so he transformed it into humans. He also tamed the giant animal people into the cuddly pets we have today.He's best known for defeating the monster in Lake Quinault, which (according to some sources) had swallowed his mother. He threw hot burning rocks into the water and boiled the monster to death.
Meanwhile his brother TIHTIPIHIN had been swallowed by the beast in a daring rescue operation. He cut through the monster's stomach, saved his mother, and then unexpectedly transformed into the father of all hermit crabs.
Reviewing his life's work, an old and tired KWATEE decided to call it a day, turned himself into stone and is now sitting around at Point Grenville, Washington, USA.
