IOSKEHA

Wyandot Creator God

Creator Deity

Made the first people and specialized in demon-bashing and magic.

He had a lot of trouble with his twin brother Tawiscara as they fought for world control. Whenever a confrontation took place, they always grabbed the nearest object to battle with.

In the final epic duel, Tawiscara snatched up some thorny rose twigs, but these were no match for the stag antlers Ioskeha found lying about. Tawiscara was driven, somewhat battered, into exile, weeping tears of flint.
