Byubo was the Padhrasattva of Nyum within the Padhran religion. "Nyum" was a Ra-Khatian concept combining spirit, courage, and audaciousness, most similar to chutzpah.[1]

HistoryEdit

In life, Byubo was a follower of the Padhra and one of those who achieved "eaum", or a state of enlightenment. He ascended to join the Padhra and become a padhrasttva.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Byubo was often depicted in statuary as a man of comical proportions, with short stubby legs and long gangly arms, displaying a wide and loutish grin.[3]

FollowersEdit

The Order of the Rainbow Monks at the Rainbow Monastery worshiped Byubo. They helped pilgrims and travelers passing through the Gogrus Chasm region of the Katakoro Shan range in Ra-Khati, in exchange for donations to the order. They operated hospices for travelers and transported cargo up the chasm wall.[1] Each building of the Rainbow Monastery housed a statue of Byubo in one form or another (one even as a thief), with an expression and a magic item that bored a blessing or a curse for those who failed to heed the proverb each building reflect.[3][4]

Magic ItemsEdit

Byubo's Lamp of Audacity, held by the statue of Byubo in the Purple Priory of the Rainbow Monastery, was a potent magical item for those of the Padhran faith.[5]
