This is the fire version of my smudged penguin elementals/deities. This is Honuoca, the penguin god of fire and heat. Even though penguins have no need for fire, they believe that Honuoca represents the inner fire burning in every one of them. This inner fire is what makes it possible to live in such cold climates as Antarctica. If it wasn't for Honuoca, they would freeze to death. So, in a way, Honuoca also symbolizes life. He is also the patron god of penguin chicks as he is the one that provided them with their down coats to keep them warm.
