Finnish Water God

Also known as Ahto

Depressed Finnish Water God

Seas, lakes, rivers. Bit morose with a tendency to brood. He lives a gloomy damp life in a wave-lashed, cloud-shrouded cliff, putting the whirl into whirlpools. He’s jealous of the Sky Gods and feels he is not getting his fair share of Godly worship from humans.

But he hardly improves his public relations image by whipping up whirlpools and employing teams of spiteful sprites. His wife Vellamo is also a wet blanket and does a lot of sorrow-drowning.
