Oceanic Storm God

Also known as TAWHIRI-MA-TEA, TAWHIRIMATEA

Wind and Storm God

Son of RANGI and PAPA.

He has thirteen cloud children, all born to confound and confuse weather forecasters. They’re known collectively as the AO. We only have details for ten of them, so we think the others may have been blown away.
