There are a number of fellows associated with this god who had helped to create the animals of the sea. They may be his children. As head of the many deities responsible for the sea creatures (excepting Lord Whale) he is thought to rank highly in the Animal Court. Certainly he pays homage to no one in the Animal Court himself. He does pay some homage to Hydana in his capacity as "Lord of the Ocean". Often they are depicted as companions.
