TURI-A-FAUMEA

Oceanic Goddess

Uncertain Octopus-snatching Victim

Goddess daughter of TANGAROA and FAUMEA.

The father and daughter combined forces to save TANGAROA’s daughter in law from the many clutches of a demon octopus called Rogo-Tumu-Here.

The creature in question is now a no-go and neither here nor there as they hauled him to the surface and chopped off his tentacles. Or she might have been a he and it was his wife who was abducted. The answer is somewhere at the bottom of the sea.
