Wintun Trickster God

The Wile E. Coyote of the Wintun people

He is a Trickster God in the form of a wild coyote. And just like Coyote, he aims to cause irritation and confusion wherever he goes.

He likes to spread a little evil too, for Sedit is not in the game for laughs. He hardly ever chases road-runners or orders crates of dynamite from ACME. In fact he seems a rather nasty character. Why else would he deliberately prevent humans from gaining immortality by canceling the Heavenly Ladder contract, thus bringing death into the world?

His arch-enemy is the Creator God Olelbis, who finds that the best way to deal with such a blatantly horrible character is to keep as far away from planet Earth as possible.
