TABURIMAI

Oceanic Fish God

Cat-fish? Dog-fish? He's a Man-fish

Married to TE-REERE the sacred Tree Goddess.

Somehow he has arms and legs even though all his siblings were fish. In fact his brother TEANOI is a hammer-head shark.

His dad Bakoa, also on the aquatic side, was worried when he heard his finny kids plotting to do away with Tab. TEANOI, the only level-headed one, was given the job of whisking Tab off to safety, for which he was rewarded by having the chance to become a big star in the sky.

Now safe on an island and able to run around, TABURIMAI met and fell in love with TE-REERE, the sacred Tree Goddess. It wasn’t long before new branches of humanity came into being and fish were history’s supper.
