Eachatuna is a cosmic entity said to have originally inhabited the seas near East Bushington. Scientists found the earliest mention of Eachatuna at Eachatuna Circle, a pre-historic monument entirely dedicated to the deity. Discussions have been going on for millennia with Cluck'thulians over which deity is the one true deity of the island. Crusades, wars, it's all been done in the past. The fact of the matter remains that devout followers believe Eachatuna created the world around us. Eachatuna may be depicted as a giant fish, often golden/blue in color, or anthropomorphically with the torso of a man connected to the rear half and head of a fish.

History

From ancient inscriptions at the Eachatuna circle, scientists managed to decipher that the origin of Eachatuna likely comes from early seafaring people. Traveling into the unknown from distant islands in rickety old canoes they would pray to the gods of the sea to grant them safe passage. Most likely some of these people made landfall on the island and decided to settle there indefinitely. Surviving the arduous trip only strengthened their beliefs in some kind of benevolent sea/fish god. This made the subsequently erect the Eachatuna Circle in its honor.

Present day

The truly devout cult of followers gathers at the Pilkington Monastery. Here they live out their lives in honor of Eachatuna. This includes daily hourlong baths in the waters it's said to inhabit. Given the duration of these baths, their skin typically goes all wrinkly, making them look a lot older than they really are. A typical practice for Eachatunians is to get fish scales tattood onto their body. Their shaved heads are the traditional body part used for this practice, but they have been branching out to the legs and arms.
