A large reptile with the face of a human that features in the Maori tale of the Supernatural Company known as the Te-Kahu-Tipu. He travelled with them always trying to find a new home but his group was dissatisfied with each location they settled into. He had a short temper and was the most dangerous of all the beasts. After a fight broke out, he was exiled by their guide, Komakahua to the island of Te-Wai-Pounamu. Although he was exiled with two other dangerous beasts, Te-Pouakai and Kopuwai, he had to live in a cave where Komakahua could keep an easy watch on him.
