(Deity)RAIJU

Also known as THUNDER BEAST

Thunderbeast. Companion of Thunder God Raijin.

Normally appearing in the form of a cat, monkey or weasel, Raiju is pretty calm and harmless as long as the weather is fine. But during thunderstorms he becomes a ball of lightning, flying around like a beast posessed and leaping about in trees and fields like his tail is on fire, which it is.

But that's not the strangest thing about Raiju ...

He loves nothing more than curling up in a nice warm human belly button. 'No harm in that' you might say, and you would be right, until Raijin shoots bolts of lightning at him to wake the lazy bugger up!

I would suggest you sleep on your stomach unless you want your naval pierced in a rather unorthodox and extremely painful manner.
