Maori Death Goddess
Also known as Hina-Nui-Te-Po, Hine-Nuitepo, Hinenuitepo
Goddess of Death and Great Lady of the Night
She used to be Hine-Titama, the happy Goddess of Light and Dawn. Until one day she discovered that her husband Tane was also her father.
This revelation was too much for her to cope with, so she fled to the Underworld, changed her name and became rather more grim.
