MESEDE

Melanesian legendary mortal

A legendary marksman with a flaming bow

He saved Abere’s son from a crocodile with his magic bow and decided to take some of her daughters as a reward.

His wife was most unhappy about this and showed her displeasure by killing them all.

Mesede managed to save one head, which he turned into a drum, which was in turn used for sacred rites with no need to constantly change the drumhead.
