Siberian - A creator-god of the Buriats. Ulgan used fish swimming in the primaeval waters to support the newly-created earth which he had formed in the shape of a huge, flat dish. Parts of the dish which broke off became the islands and land masses of earth and the god used one small part to make the first human, who was called Erlik. He warned Nama of the impending flood, giving him time to build an ark in which he survived. When Erlik killed Madere who had been sent to earth as a saviour by Ulgan, the sky-god destroyed Erlik. Also commonly known as Ulgan, Ulgen, Ulgen, Yakuts Yrin-ai-tojon or Yakuts Yrin-ai-tojon.
