Diwata is a Philippine mythological figure similar to fairies or nymphs but they are considered equivalent to other creation gods . They reside in large trees (e.g. acacia, narra, balete) and are the guardian sprits of nature, bringing blessing or curses upon those who bring benefits or harm to the rivers, lakes, swamps, caves, forests, mountains and seas.
