Iktomi (Kenta Tsuyoshi's Persona) Picture

My second character's Persona on the Persona Heaven forum.

Persona Name: Iktomi

Arcana: Strength

Background:In Lakota mythology, Iktomi is a spider-trickster spirit, and a culture hero for the Lakota people. Alternate names for Iktomi include Ikto, Ictinike, Inktomi, Unktome, and Unktomi. These names are due to the differences in tribal languages, as this spider deity was known throughout many of North America's tribes.

According to the Lakota, Iktomi is the son of Inyan, the Rock, a creator god similar in form to other male creator gods. Iktomi has a younger brother, Iya, who is a destructive and powerful spirit. One story of Iktomi goes that in the ancient days, Iktomi was Ksa, or wisdom, but he was stripped of this title and became Iktomi because of his troublemaking ways.

This was a REALLY fun design, funner than my other characters design, especially since I had to work around the fact that Kenta is wheelchair bound, although as a tactical persona, it is immobile, I enjoy the legs on it.
