On The South Pacific Island of Fiji ''Degei'' is seen as a ''Serpent God'' of both The Underworld and of Final Judgment. He is most portrayed as a Great Snake with ''many heads''. Degei controls two Caves in The Afterlife. One leads to Eternal Reward and the other to damnation and torment. Asked important questions from One's Life, if One answers incorrectly Degei directs them to Torment. Some pass and enter into Paradise. Degei also controls the weather and food on The Island. If proper sacrifices are not made, great calamity will befall the people. If satisfied, good crops are cultivated and many births will occur. As such snakes are somewhat revered among Islanders.
