This week, it's the story of Fortunatus, the man who, bet you could never guess from his name, was given an inexhaustible fortune, and how things kind of went off the rails for him and his kids.

The creature is Babi, from Egyptian mythology, who's as dedicated to your love life as he is to cracking you open like a coconut and feasting on your innards.

In the story of Fortunatus, Fortunatus hires sex workers (we really dance around this one, I basically just say he spent all of his money on time with lady friends) and he marries a 13-year-old. The creature of the week is where it gets a bit more explicit, with Babi being the god of virility in the afterlife and a mast of the ship to ferry the dead or a key to heaven.
