A Twist on the PY Myths: Jasy Picture

The New Paraguayan Mythology Suite: Jasy Jateré

Chapter 4:

En su cuarto período de gestación, Kerana siente que al fin hay algo de humano en su vientre. A los siete meses, como ha ocurrido con todos sus hijos anteriores, pare a un niño de dorados cabellos y piel muy blanca, pero el niño ha nacido con un bastón áureo en su mano derecha. Una leve presión sobre su varita mágica y el niño, al que llaman Jasy Jatere, desaparece volviéndose invisible. El niño horroriza a su madre desapareciendo y apareciendo en lugares increíbles. Jasy Jatere será el duende que en las siestas, escudado en su figura de niño, asediará a las jóvenes y a las niñas que se animen a salir solas, conquistándolas y poseyéndolas con los poderes de su mágico bastón. Dominará a las abejas y de ellas obtendrá la miel con la que se alimentará, cuyos restos lleva hasta la cueva donde vive su hermano mayor, Teju Jagua.

During her fourth pregnancy, Kerana finally feels that there is something human in her insides. In the seventh month, as with all her previous pregnancies, she bears a child of golden hair, very white skin and with a golden stick in his hand. Upon the slightest pressure on his wand, this child they call Jasy Jatere, becomes invisible and disappears. The child terrifies his mother by disappearing and reappearing in unbelievable places. Jasy Jatere will be the one who during nap time at noon will, disguised by his childish look, besiege the young ladies who venture out on their own, conquering them and possessing them with the power of his magic stick. He will dominate the bees and from them get the honey he will feed on and whose remains he will carry to the cave where his older brother Teju Jagua lives.
