(Deity)KOTANKOR-KAMUI

Ainu land deity, Kotankor Kamui ensures the humans behave themselves in his domain.

When a great famine struck the land his plan to send a crow to get a heavenly update came apart as it fell asleep halfway through his rather long-winded brief. Kotankor was pretty insulted when the crow only managed to stay awake for three days while he dished out instructions so he killed it.

The mountain Jay faired a little better, enduring four sleepless days and nights but suffered the same fate. Finally the dipping bird made it through the full six days and returned from heaven to inform Kotankor that the Gods weren't happy. Oh wow, really!?

It was the game and fish deities that were particularly offended. Apparently the humans were taking their food gifts for granted and behaving like a load of ungrateful so and so's. You see, it's all about the offerings. Kotankor took it upon himself to teach hunting and fishing and reminded the humans that they should really be hosting regular rituals. It wasn't long before the Gods were back onside.
