The Gods of Polynesia and the South Seas

TEANOI

Oceanic Protection God

Sharky life-saver

He’s the shark brother of TABURIMAI. In an unusual turn of events, he rescued his human brother from the sea. There were apparently no dolphins available so he had to step in. Or should that be fin in?

As a reward, TEANOI was granted a luxury vacation to swim through the heavenly seas. He is still there.
