Sitan

Sitan is an ancient dark god from Filipino mythology, his role is the same as that of the monotheistic Satan, the guardian of Kasamaan (the ancient Tagalog version of Hell) and all of the souls within he had four agents tasked to tempting and ruining mankind.

Like his Biblical counterpart Satan, Sitan was opposed to Bathala (the supreme god of the Tagalog pantheon) and all other deities, being feared and reviled as a malicious and destructive entity.

Agents of Sitan

The second agent of Sitan, she was tasked to destroy and break every happy and united family that she could find.

Mangkukulam

Like his fellow agents, he could change his form to that of a healer and then induce fire at his victim's house. If the fire were extinguished immediately, the victim would eventually die. His name remains today as "witch".
