HONOYETA

Oceanic Demon

A real snake in the grass.

He had two wives, but when he set off to supposedly go and earn a bite in the morning, he nipped out of his snakeskin and became a handsome hunk who seduced other women with his devilish charm.

When his wives became aware of his cheating ways they burned his snakeskin, so he could not return to the bonus of snaky writhings and had to remain human forever. He then invented death for humans so he could shake off old girl friends, because after all he was a demon, and it was his business to be up to no good.

What he does for sex now we cannot say.
