WULBARI

Krachi Ruler God

Top God driven mad by human behavior

Yes, another one. And once again an old woman was responsible for the final straw — in this case from an errant barbecue. Her cooking fire sent stinging noxious fumes straight into his poor sensitive eyes.

Wulbari was so annoyed, he upped and went, founding an entourage consisting only of animals and Anansi, the God who was a spider anyway.

So Wulbari is probably the God responsible for setting the well-known curse on barbecues. Invoke him gently before unwrapping the sausages or risk a rain shower that will put your fire right out.
