Fantasy Drabble #266 “The Edda of the Beyelu”

The children of Bol and Jyl, rulers of the Underworld, are called the Beyelu. They reside in the underworld and only occasionally emerge into the mortal world.

Ziklon, usually depicted as a huge muscular male completely encased in armor, is the patron of War. Hookt, shown as a hunched, withered old woman, rules over doubt, suspicion, and betrayal. Yikt is a younger female, and inspires jealousy. Mowolon, driven mad by the Xil, rules insanity, while Awelon is the patron of anger and depression.

The trimale (infertile, neither male nor female) Chorolem and Sokolem rule anger and depression, and disease, respectively.
