Yig, the Father of Serpents, is one of the Great Old Ones who first appears in "The Curse of Yig". He acts as a god who sends his minions/children out to punish all who has murdered a snake in the past by either killing them or turning into a snake-like creature such as himself. He is the father of Ayi'ig and the mate of the outer god Yidhra. Even though Yig is easy to anger, Yig is also easy to please.
