OLIFATAlso known as OLOFAT
Prankster God son of [LUGEILAN], he is an eternal pest who won't grow up.He uses lightning flashes to slide down to Earth, and rides back upwards on columns of smoke. Which usually means he has to set fire to something.
He plagues other Gods by upsetting cooking pots and distracting them with stupid tomfoolery — then tries to rape their daughters. When things get too hot in Heaven, it's out the back window and whizz — back to Earth in a flash.
On Earth he fits sharks with teeth, and fixes stings onto scorpions. He encourages ants and termites to gnaw through roof beams causing houses to collapse. He is always setting fire to thatch, and if things get too hot it's back up to Heaven with the smoke.
There is never a dull moment with him around and many humans would rather die than have to put up with him. So they do.
