Fearless - (Tumatauenga - God of War and Man)
Tumatauenga (God of War and Man) Description: Fear will inspire men to do almost anything especially when it comes to protecting the things we believe we cannot do without; the things we deem most dear and precious to us. In the entire world what is it that you love the most? What is the one thing you prize above all else and what would you do to protect it? Legend: No two among the children of Ranginui (The Sky Father) and Papatuanuku (Mother Earth) were quite so evenly matched as Tumatauenga (God of War and Man) and Tawhirimatea (God of Wind and Storms). It was Tumatauenga who alone withstood the wrath and might of Tawhirimatea. A stalemate ensued, so that the God of War and Man turned from one battle to visit his rage upon his other brethren for abandoning him, rebuking them for their weakness and fear.
