North American - An Algonquin brave. His 'parents' had a son-in-law who treated them very badly, keeping all the meat and skins from the hunt for himself. One day, all he allowed his father-in-law was a drop of blood that he found on the arrow that had killed a buffalo. The old man put the drop of blood into a pot with some water and boiled it. When he opened the pot, he found a baby boy, Kutoyis, who instructed the old man to tie him to the lodge-pole, whereupon he grew to manhood at once. He killed the evil sonin- law and went on to rid the land of many evils before departing forever to the Shadow Land. On occassion, called Kutoyis.
