Twist on the PY Myths: Teju Picture

The New Paraguayan Mythology Suite: Teju Jagua.

Chapter 1:

Siete lunas han pasado desde aquel día aciago en que Kerana fue raptada por el malvado. Siete lunas han observado pálidas de espanto la desesperación de la niña. Ahora Kerana está dando a luz. Ella espera un niño, pero la maldición de Arasy le ha hecho engendrar un monstruo. Kerana da a luz un horrible monstruo de siete cabezas. Siete de cabezas de perro cuyos ojos despiden llamaradas. Siete cabezas de perro y un horrible cuerpo de lagarto. En el futuro será conocido como Teju Jagua. Siete cabezas de perro que le condenan a la inacción. Su ferocidad fue aniquilada por deseo de Tupa y, contrariamente a su horrenda figura, se alimenta solamente de frutas y de la miel que su futuro hermano menor, Jasy Jatere le lleva hasta su escondrijo.

Seven moons have gone by since that fateful day when Kerana was kidnapped by the evil one. For seven nights has the moon shone bleakly o the little girl's despair. Now Kerana is giving birth. She expects it to be a boy, but the curse of Arasy has had a monster begetting in her. Kerana bears an abhorrent monster with seven heads. Seven dog heads whose eyes are aflame. Seven dog heads and a revolting alligator body. It shall be known as Teju Jagua (Lizard-Dog). Seven dog heads that condemn it to idling. His ferocity was annihilated by Tupa's will and, despite its awful form, feeds only on fruit and honey taken to him to his hideout by his future younger brother, Jasy Jatere.
