The Ancient God and Folk Hero of Finland, Väinämöinen was instrumental in Finland even being populated, as with a magical Sampo, he created a limitless supply of food for the settlers there. He carried a Kantalae made from the jawbone of a very large carp, he used the music he played on it to fuel his sorcery. One day, he set out to sail on the seas, telling the people of Finland that he would one day come back. He would return when his magic was again needed. Well, guess what... He's back. Better than ever, and poised to save the planet, and then take it over. Or maybe destroy it. He's not sure yet.
