Arawak Creator God

Also known as Kurubumany, Kururumanny

Macho Creator God who specialized in making humans in his own male image

His wife Kulimina tried to copy his models but the bits kept dropping off or expanding — so her samples came out in her own very feminine image. Between them they managed to create a small population of men and women.

But Kururumany was furious. He had set his heart on an all-male bonding world with no nagging females or nappies to change.

Thwarted, he left off bothering with people and spent the rest of his time making creepy crawlies, savage animals and poisonous things that could cause death.

Luckily, Kururumany may not have been in soul charge as another deity, Aluberi, seems to have issued instructions.
