Crow God of the Wind

He keeps the winds neatly tied up in various sacks ready for use. Which makes him a bit of a windbag.

As you would expect of a Wind God, Bellin-Bellin seems quite capricious; he’s best known for unleashing a storm of gales upon unsuspecting Bunjil.

He may also be sneaking around under the name Waang.
