Majayama is a god or goddess in the polytheistic Gunni faith mentioned briefly in Soldiers Live. Majayama's priests wear yellow and attend to the above-ground bone piles found in Gunni cemeteries. According to Croaker, these priests "watch over their shoulders because Kina and her pack of pet demons supposedly lived beneath the bone piles".

Nothing else is detailed about Majayama. And, despite the deity's association with cemeteries, Majayama might not be an "underworld god" or chthonic deity since the Gunni believe in reincarnation and do not believe in a permanent heaven or hell. Majayama could be associated with Swegah, a temporary spiritual place visited by souls between reincarnations.

It is possible that Majayama is also recognized in the polytheistic Shadar cults as well, since they share many deities with the Gunni, but this was not specified.

Unlike Kina – a real entity about whom countless myths have sprung up – there is no indication in the Annals that Majayama was anything other than a mythological character.
