Jun Raqan

Jun Raqan means the one legged. He is the Mayan god of wind, storm and fire. A relentless and temperamental god with incredible power. He is know to level vast expanses of land overnight. His temper follows Kinich Ahau's (sun god) cycle though the skies. Weaker and more reserved during spring as he knows Kinich Ahau is becoming stronger, he quickly becomes confident during the ending days of summer when he knows Kinich Ahau must rest for the winter.

He rises slowly from across the ocean and his arrival is foretold by increased rains and winds. The only god that was involved in all three creations of men is still with us in our modern day and age. We hear of him in the news during those months of fall that foretell the arrival of winter. We know him as Hurricane, the one legged monster from the sea.
