Oceanic Death God

A Spider God of Copying and Plagiarism

He drove QAT mad. He tried to imitate everything QAT did and always made a hash of it. QAT’s wooden dolls (which he managed to hide from MARAWA for three days) came to life. MARAWA didn’t know where to hide his own wooden doll attempts so he buried them, forgot about them for six days and the termites had terminated them. This is why the dead are buried.

But they remained buddies — QAT couldn’t live without MARAWA because he was always on hand to rescue QAT from traps and prevent him being killed by vengeful brothers.
