The Beasts Within
Dapina, goddess of Fire
Dapina was a fiery soul. Hot-headed and tempermental, Dapina always felt a rage building inside of her. When Buwima created land beneath them, Dapina was shocked. How dare he create such a masterful work without consulting her first? Dapina’s anger swelled until a plot sparked in her mind. Buwima’s sweet land would be scarred with her rage. Dapina conjured a fire so hot it would melt the rock it touched. However, as Dapina sent the fire to the land, Udewa’s wind caught the flames and spread them all over. Most were extinguised, but the north wind caught enough flame that the fire was hurled into the sky, lightening the land. Dapina, goddess of Fire, saw the brightness and smiled. At least she was a part of the creation now.
