In Polynesian mythology, stories about Tinirau are found throughout the islands of Polynesia. He is a guardian of fish.
In some traditions, he has a dual nature; one destructive as the guardian of sharks, and one a kind, handsome male youth; in others, his right side is human and his left side is a fish.
Alternate names in the various Polynesian languages include Kinilau, Sinilau, Tigilau, and Tinilau.
