MESEDE

Oceanic legendary mortal

A marksman with a flaming bow.

He saved a chief’s son from a crocodile and was given some daughters as a reward. His wife was most unhappy and showed her displeasure by killing them all.

MESEDE managed to save one head, which he turned into a drum, which was in turn used for sacred rites with no need to constantly change the drumhead.
