Deus Ex Machina

I was asked if there was a god in Animal Crossing.

My first answer was of course, No. But then I got to thinking about it and retracted my answer.

The obvious answer is Tom Nook.

He even has a sheisty red counter part named Redd who is of course the devil.

Unless you take the view that Tom is really the devil (he does require you to do a lot of work and for what, a bigger house? Material gain! :o The devils work I say.) :'D

And you only get to see Redd once a week and his middle man is a loud, long-winded otter in a suite (which could resemble a priests' garb?).

So this got me to wondering, if the comparison of god and the devil is correct for these two characters, who do the other regular NPCs represent?

The first real obvious one is Cerberus for the two dogs that guard the gates (the third dog could be the fucking long and annoying TEXT you have to go through to pass through the gates? :<)

I'm more familiar with non-christian dieties. XD so if anyone else plays, throw out some suggestions.
