RAN

She's the wife of [AEGIR] but is terribly randy and fancies mortals.

The snag is, she lives at the bottom of the sea, so has to snatch suitors from the surface in a net. Doesn't have a lot of luck with her infidelities as drowning seems to render them incapable.

However she does have nine daughters by AEGIR. These are the white-robed Billow Girls known as the WAVE-MAIDENS.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ran graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ran 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. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

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