  • the sea-mammal tribe - tutelary deity, the holy lord Delvina - the dolphin who is a goddess, the goddess who is a dolphin. This tribe incorporates dolphins, porpoises, whales, orcas, walruses, seals.
It is prohibited to eat any of the meat of any sacred animals. The sacred animals possess souls, whereas animals unsacred are soulless.

There are also subsidary deities, which rule not an entire tribe but rather a subtribe. In particular we must here mention the holy lord Taba - the bat who is a god, the god who is a bat.

Bacu could be seen as equivalent to Egyptian Anubis. His star is (of course) Sirius. He also corresponds to Cerberus.

Trinca corresponds to Egyptian Bastet and Sekhmet.
