Tāwhirimātea Model Sheet by Erwin Ropa

Tāwhirimātea is one of the major protagonists of 'Comrade Hero'.

Tāwhirimātea - The God of Weather, also including thunder and lightning, wind, clouds, rain, mist, fog and storms.

In Māori mythology, Tāwhirimātea has waged war against his brothers since the forced separation of their parents, Ranginui (the sky father) and Papatūānuku (the earth mother). Tāwhirimātea tore through the forests of Tāne Mahuta, whipped up violent waves against Tangaroa, and forced Rongomātāne and Haumia-tikitiki to flee into the earth to escape his wrath. Only Tūmatauenga, the God of War and Progenitor of Humankind was able to withstand the onslaught of Tāwhirimātea. Neither brother was able to obtain an advantage over the other, being evenly matched.
