The Beasts Within
Piwaka, god of Mind
Piwaka saw the land’s formation and knew exactly what would happen. The land was going to be created, and the other gods would never use its resources. Other beings needed to inhabit this world. Piwaka raised small pieces of earth and gave them life. The beings were given the gift of thought and permitted to act however they chose. Piwaka also created life unlike anything the gods had ever seen: green leaves and tall trees sprouted across the land, using all of the other gods’ resources to sustain themselves. Piwaka, god of Mind, felt a sick feeling as he saw the beings he had created. They were doomed, and he knew it.
