The nine sons of Woot — who are also called Woot — helped their father in different aspects of creation, clearing the land and planting. The two youngest sons invented the idea of pointed things and the skill of sharpening. When the inventor of pointed things wounds the sharpener, evil and death were introduced into the world. Another son slept with Mweel and was subsequently banished. Woot put a curse on the village so that all the women living there became barren as a result. Eventually he relented and lifted the curse.
