Kanaloa was god of the underworld and a teacher of magic. Ruler of the ocean. Complementary power and close companion of Kane. In ancient Hawaiʻi, Kanaloa is represented by the squid or the octopus, and is also associated with Kāne. He is also the name of an extinct volcano in Hawaiʻi. In many ancient legends or chants Kane and Kanaloa are two powers working together. "Kanaloa is also considered to be the god of the Underworld and a teacher of magic." Some legends say that he was first part of a spirit army that tried to overthrow the gods. As a punishment they were thrown in the Underworld.
