A popular Theyyam which belongs to the Shaivite belief system, Pookutti was born as a child to Kalakattu Namboodiri. Born as a mischievous child, Pookutti followed non-vegetarian food habits and this enraged his father. The father himself killed the child and threw it into different fire pits. The pieces thrown into the fire pits emerged as Mantra Moorthis and Kuttichathans and destroyed the Kalakattu house.
