RIBHUS

Hindu Craft God

Also known as Rhibus

Jolly little elfin twins who do Crafts and Tinkering

They sound more Celtic than Vedic. They were fathered by Indra and mothered by Saranyu who was the daughter of Tvashtri.

They have supped some Soma in their time, which may account for their jolliness. In fact they had a little thing going to produce four special souvenir Soma cups. Could there be cheap replicas on the market?
