NYAMI-ABE

South American Moon God

God of the Moon

Wayward brother of PAGE-ABE.

He used to be as bright as the Sun, until he was punished for attempting to have his wicked way with PAGE-ABE’s wife. His brother took away his shiny headdress and left him in semi-darkness.

Now he just glimmers in the night. We’re not sure what happened to PAGE-ABE’s wife though.
