GUINECHEN
Also known as GUINECHÉN, GUINECHE, GUIEMAPUN

Creator God of Stability and Equilibrium

He's the supreme deity trying to keep the world in order against the evil forces of GUECUFU and PILLAN. It's a never-ending job and all he has time for.

Legend tells that there was once a great flood which threatened to wipe out all life on Earth. To preserve his creatures, GUINECHEN raised the mountains higher to give humans and animals more upper ground to escape to. That's why mountains are so tall and pointy.

According to those in the know, both GUINECHEN and GUECUFU are equally matched, and the never-ending battle of Good vs Evil is actually what keeps the Universe ticking over.

Should either side ever win, the whole fabric of the Cosmos would come crashing down like a badly-fixed curtain.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Guinechen graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Guinechen movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Guinechen statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Guinechen. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
