HINA-IKA

Oceanic Fish Goddess

Lady of the Fish

She has amazingly useful hair.

Her brother MAUI used it to make a net to pull the sun to where he wanted it. Her husband IRA-WARU, a merman, used her hair for his fishing nets.

Being so fine and silvery, her hair also supplies the threads for Moonrays.
