Very butch Warrior Goddess

She knocked hell out of legions of giants and turned them into mountain landscapes. After that she found Earth a bit boring and left for various high rise residences elsewhere. Her assistant Senx tends to look after the daily creation chores.

She doesn’t think much of humans, but pays the odd visit to take her pet snake Sisiutl for a crawl. And to smack a few humans about and cause disasters. If you see the snake, watch out.
