The Krig is an ancient god of Mohkadun, and the God of Joy in that era. His symbol appears to be a diagonally striped egg, and his holiday was reportedly a day of joy.
The Krig appears in Mokhadun as a jovial, bearded man wearing a keffiyeh and Egyptian-style clothing bearing his symbol, with his chest and muscular arms exposed.
According to Queen Siphaniana, the Krig had a darker origin. He is allegedly the last of a tribe of brutal barbarians, and chose the name of this tribe over his own to remember his past cruelties.
In ancient Mokhadun scenes, Krig is observed interacting frequenly with humanity, particularly approving Elder Soco's building projects. He also revealed significant information on the origin of the gods to Soco.
In later conversation with Sluggy, God of Power, Gywnn learns that the gods of Mokhadun choose their forms. Apparently, the Krig chose to "pop his height up a foot or three."
For unknown reasons Bun-Bun wants the Krig dead. It is heavily hinted that the God of Joy later becomes Santa Claus, as his full name is Krig Gaul ("Kringle"), which explains Bun-Bun's ongoing vendetta with Santa.
