OCASTA

Confused God of Knowledge who made a wise choice

He couldn't make up his mind if he was good or evil, so he helped the Creator one day and caused destruction the next.

OCASTA invented witches to do his dirty work, but was attacked while wandering the Earth by a lady with a pointy stick. The men of the nearest village chucked him on the fire as punishment for his crimes.

But as death loomed, his good nature prevailed and he blessed his captors with knowledge, wisdom and power. Some of them became the first medicine men. And all were very grateful. Except the witches.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ocasta graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ocasta movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Ocasta statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ocasta. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
