NYAMI ABE

Tucano Moon God

God of the Moon

Wayward brother of Page Abe.

He used to be as bright as the Sun, until he was punished for attempting to have his wicked way with Page Abe’s wife. His brother took away his shiny headdress and left him in semi-darkness.

Now he just glimmers in the night. We’re not sure what happened to Page Abe’s wife though.
