Australian - A spirit of the Dreamtime. He could chant spells to bring rain to the desert. He killed two young men who had opened his bags of grubs and turned their bodies into stones, known as Duralu, which the tribes were instructed to protect since disaster would occur if the stones were damaged or broken. He planted many trees in the wasteland. After the flood he climbed a mountain and rose into the sky where he remains as a guardian sky god, meeting the souls of the dead (tulugals) and caring for them. He also superintends the initiation rites of some tribes, pretending to cut the initiates into pieces and restoring them to life. He then knocks out one of the front teeth of each initiate. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Darana.
