Oceanic Creator God

Spider and Son World Construction Inc

The supreme spider NAREAU Senior retired after initial creation, leaving his son NAREAU Junior to carry on the good work, with the assistance of an Octopus called NA-KIKA and an Eel, whose slippery name escapes us for the moment.

It was a brilliant combination. No humans have ever come near to matching their constructive brilliance. Only Gods can add the final touches and make sunsets.

One or other NAREAU occasionally visits Earth to check up on their creation, so be sure not to tread on any spiders you may meet. That would be a very bad thing.

Somewhere down the line there is also TE-IKAWAI.
