According to ancient myths, the Earth Mother Gaea gave birth to Bathala (Bathalang Maykapal), the supreme Sky Father and Diwatas' king. Later, Bathala fell in love with a mortal woman while visiting Earth and sired Apo Laki, god of war and the sun, among other deities. They devoted much of their time and energies to serving as guardians of nature. [1]


Diwatas tend to weaken after prolonged stays in the Earth realm, and often bind their life essences to mortal hosts when away from Kaluwalhatian for extended periods. [1]


Apo Laki is armed with a large bolo knife and a kalasag (Filipino long shield). [1]
