IYA

Sioux Sickness God

Evil God of rampaging pestilence

He storms around carrying foul disease and plague to the four corners of the world. This isn’t for any particular reason — he just enjoys it. He also goes on a devouring rampage whenever the mood takes him.

He’s Ictinike’s brother, but not nearly so handsome. In fact he’s downright hideous. Avoid like the plague.
