Godchecker's mythology encyclopedia


Half-spirit, half-human folk who lived on paradisiacal Earth.

Their number includes DARVI and DIWA-ZIB.

The DEMAS invented all sorts of things and life was idyllic. Until they discovered fire. Of course, they just had to play with it, until it got out of control and even the mountains caught alight.

DARVI, a top Dema, sent rain, but it wasn't working properly due to technical glitches. But he managed to grab a great chunk of land and heave it into the sea, along with a load of scorched animals. This is why crabs are red and herons have red legs. Indeed anything with red markings dates back to those scorching days.

The chunk of earth is now the island of New Guinea, and the DEMAS are a lot more careful.
