A spirit of birth. Walla-gudjail-uan has the responsibility of placing the unborn spirits where they will be found by the right mothers. The spirit's favorite food is mussels. Sometimes the baby spirits tease her by taking them away. Then she grows angry and threatens to hide the baby spirits where they will never be found. Fortunately, another spirit named Walla-guroon-buan takes pity on them.
