Yudjá legendary mortal

A famed Medicine Man who was visited by Sinaa as he slept beside a tree

He was given great secret knowledge and healing powers. Particularly when he drank a potion made from the bark of the tree.

All this was a real benefit when he took a wife who was unfaithful. Her lover tried to creep up and smash him with a club.

But thanks to Sinaa, our hero also had eyes in the back of his head. He dodged the club which, wielded with vicious power, made a large hole in the ground.

Uaica cried: “If this is the way I am to be re-paid, I’m going!” And he vanished down the hole never to return.
