AIARU

Tahitian Death Goddess

Goddess of Fate and one of the Seven Guardians of the World

She concentrates on death and prediction. If you want to know the time and date of your death, feel free to ask.

Note: The other six Guardians appear to have gone surfing. We are told that their names are: Fa’a’ipu, Firifiri’Aufau, Nihoniho teitei, ‘Orerorero, Tahu’a, and Tamaumau’orero. We’d appreciate reports of any sightings.
