Marawa

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Melanesian spider-god. He is the trickster-god who tricked man out of his immortality. Friend and foe of Qat, the other potent spirit. He opposed Qat's conquest of the sea by replacing the chips cut from the tree trunk which Qat was making into a canoe. When Qat caught him doing that one night, Marawa agreed to help finish the canoe.
