African Death God
Also known as Gauna, Gaunab
Supreme God of Life, Death and Seasonal Renewal
Gamab lives in the sky and directs the fate of mankind. When it’s time for someone to die, Gamab gets out his bow and shoots them down with an arrow.
He has his own village in the Heavens with a ritual fire. When a newcomer comes along, as a gesture of kindness he offers them a drink from a bowl of liquid fat. Ewwwww.
Gamab’s arch-enemy is the evil Gaunab. Luckily there’s another goodie, in the form of Tsui-goab.
