He started off as Ogo, one of Amma’s first creations. But he was a very naughty creation and attempted to subvert the whole Universe – in a very sleazy and disgusting way. We are talking of attempted rape inside an egg.
As punishment for his dreadful behavior, Ogo was transformed into Yurugu, the Pale Fox, known locally as the Jackal – a creature despised by all.
He slinked away and now prowls the dry wastes complaining to himself and causing trouble where possible. There are many foxy trickster deities, but none of them are quite so mouthwateringly awful.
