North American - An Iroquois brave. He was greatly grieved when his sister died and travelled to Shadowland in the hope of rescuing her. With the help of the keeper and Tarenyawago, the master of ceremonies, he captured her spirit and took it home with him. As he prepared to revivify his sister's corpse, a foolish brave (or, in some accounts, a young girl) lifted the lid of the gourd. The trapped spirit flew off and Sayadio fell dead from grief. Sometimes called Sayadio.
