SEREMAK – The patron god of vigor, vitality and general physical fitness. He had a flattened belly (“Six-Pack abs of the Gods!”), nine pairs of wings and wielded a sword and a spear made of mugwort.
URESPA – The deity who oversaw the rearing and training of children. He also played a role in maintaining the child’s health until they reached their teen years. In the event of a child suffering from a long illness effigies of him would be crafted and used in rituals to restore the child’s health.
USAPKI – The god who granted individuals sufficient skill at hunting and fishing. He is not to be confused with the actual goddesses of hunting and fishing. Usapki was a more personal deity invoked to refine one’s personal skill, like a coach.
