The creator of the earth (under Kari's direction) as well as the first actual creator of the human race (as represented by the Semang). On behalf of the Semang he pleads with Kari when the latter is angry. It is related of Ple that he ate fruit and threw away the seeds, which grew up into trees and bore fruit in the course of a single night.

Unlike Kari, Ple has no acknowledged form of cult. His sister and wife is Simei, the goddess of childbirth.
