South American - Son of the sun-god in Peru. Half-brother of Pachacamac. The first woman was fertilised by the sun. Her first son was killed by the god Pachacamac who used the body to grow plants. When Pachacamac killed the woman as well, Vichama, her second son, drove him into the sea where he remained as a sea-god. Vichama then changed the race of people that Pachacamac had created from stones, replacing them with a new race hatched from three eggs. Sometimes called Vichama, Wichama or Wichama.
