Legend Of the Creation of the World.


MYTH OF THE CREATION OF THE WORLD

Before the start of time, Gods/Goddesses and all other species used to live in the same heaven. However all the other species were strictly forbidden to interact with the Gods and Goddesses. One mortal however fell in love with a God and seduced him. The Gods and Goddesses were furious and banished all the species onto land they created and called Aphelion.

Orignal term for the land was lost but it is widely believed the name means, "Land of Wrath."

The Gods and Goddesses left heaven and built another realm for themselves.

Goddess of Air, Mountains and Forests. GAYA.


Legend.

When the world was created the humans were very sad that they couldnt interact with the Gods directly. So they prayed to the Gods to give them a chance to be closer to them.

Gaya took pity on the vigilently praying humans and created trees and mountains so that the humans could climb them to be nearer to the Gods.

She is also the Goddess of Air and makes sure living things always have clean air to breath.

Myths and Traditions.
This diety is worshipped particularly by travellers and adventurers during their journeys through the mountains and forests. Her blessings are sought when someone cuts down a tree and it is widely believed that landslides and hurricanes are caused when she is feeling angry or upset.

It is also believed that every year Gaya suffers from ill health and thus the trees shed leaves and stand barren of fruit and flowers. As she regains her health, the trees also turn green and bless people with fruits and flowers.

Emblem
Gaya's symbol is a an ivy vine shooting towards the sky and people wear amulets with Gaya's symbol for protection and safe journey.

Zon, the Twilight Rider
God of the Sun and Sky



The Legend
During the times of creation, Aphelion was defenseless and chaotic, ravaged by the energies of the Outer Darkness. Whatever forces that brought about Aphelions birth had trouble continuing with their work. Until Zon the Twilight Rider appeared.
A strong warrior, Zon traveled the cosmos within his chariot, destroying any obstacle in his path. With him, he carried a shield of fire and draped himself in a cloth of blue and white.
On his travels, Zon eventually discovered Aphelion in it's distraught state. He traveled to the planets surface and defeated the terrible beasts that wondered there. The creator gods appeared before him and blessed him for his valor: they offered him residence within the realm of the gods themselves. But Zon denied them.
My work is not yet done, he told the gods. And before their eyes, Zon took to his chariot and traveled above the planet. No longer shall the evil of the darkness defile this land, he screamed! He stripped himself of his robe and placed it over Aphelion, blocking the energies from entering, and he threw his shield around Aphelion, warding off any foes who would harm her. These would become the sky and the Sun.
And, with that, the gods ascended Zon to the realm of the gods, were he was given heavenly fruit by beautiful maidens and sung to by the sirens of old. But even within his paradise, Zon watched Aphelion vigilantly, ready to battle any harm that would come to the planet.

Myths and Traditions
Zon is the symbol for the warrior, as well as the Sun and sky. He is often prayed to by fighters for a victorious battle that would wait ahead.
When it rains or snows, most believe it is the sweat that has trickled down from his body from his great battles, and the lighting and thunder that boom are his powerful strikes. so the saying "Battles are best fought in the rain; for Zon himself is fighting with us" was born.
The birth of Zon is highly speculated. Some believe he has lived for eternity; some think he was born of the meeting of a holy doe and eagle; some think that he is a manifestation of the energies of the Outer Darkness. But no one but Zon himself may know of his birth.
Some like to believe that Zon is related to the earth and seas; that he is a brother to them both.

Emblem
The symbol for Zon is a oval with three down-facing lines. This is to represent Zon's gaze over Aphelion. Most warriors print this symbol on their shields for luck in battle.

Nanoshi, The Goddess of Mercy, Love, and Hope


The Legend

It is believed that Nanoshi was once a mortal woman of goddess like beauty and grace. She was in love with a great warrior that was tortured and killed by the enemy. Every week he was tortured, they sent Nanoshi one of his limbs, starting with his fingers, then his toes, his arms, his legs, then eventually his head. After she got each limb, she would cry for the entire time until she got the next limb, then she would continue crying until she got the next one. The gods saw her suffering and visited her in a dream, they told her that she could attain godhood if she was willing to take the suffering of all of the people who cried for mercy, allowing mercy to be delivered to them. Nanoshi selflessly agreed and now cares for all those to cry for mercy both for themselves and for others.

Trivia

Nanoshi is the symbol for mothers, as well as mercy, love, and hope. Mothers often pray to her for their children and lovers to return from battle and other things that cause them suffering.

It is said that Nanoshi is also the Goddess of Sadoyus for it is believed that when Nanoshi was a mortal, she lived in Sadoyus. That is why she is worshipped in Sadoyus more then anywhere else.

Many believe that whenever the rain or snow makes a statue of Nanoshi look like it is crying, it means the Nanoshi is crying for her lost lover.

The symbol for Nanoshi is a white petal with five petals and the bottom petal is red, which represents a blood red tear of suffering that Nanoshi cries, while the white petals represent the mercy, love, and hope she gives.

Rhak'Sha
Sadoan Deity of Death and the Underworld



The Legend
In recent years, the Gaian king's dreams have been haunted by a gruesome figure. He calls himself Rhak'Sha, and he sits upon a throne of camel skin stuffed with bull entrails; around him the dammed rot eternally within his realm of pure shadow. He hides his face with a mask of a rotting elephant head. He speaks of death, and nothing but.
He has told the king of his keen control over the lives of others, that with a whim of his mind he may kill any person he wishes no matter the place or time. He tells the king he may grant him the death he has been longing for for millenniums. But Rhak'Sha demands notoriety in exchange. He commands the king to build him a vast empire in his name, and to create temples were he will be worshiped. The king obeys willingly.

Long ago, when the Umarki ruled the land of Sadoyus, Rhak'Sha was an equal amongst them. But after the war of Ado and Yu, the Umarki were forced from the land by their own guilt, but not Rhak'Sha. Rhak'Sha stayed within Sadoyus and refused to leave. The remaining Umarki cursed Rhak'Sha for his actions. The Sun and Moon would burn his skin as long as he remained on top of the land.
For a time, Rhak'Sha endured the pain; his skin became charred and vile. When he could no longer bare the power of the light, he retreated to the caves and crevices below Sadoyus. There, Rhak'Sha swore to steal the souls and flesh of those he wished. And so, he filled his caves with the rotting dammed and made his throne of camels skin and bull entrails. And, he amusingly stalked the land with his magic, stealing the lives and bodies of the people.

Myths and Traditions
Rhak'Sha demands that blood be spilled in his name, and that he be sacrificed to on a regular bases.
The elephant is considered highly amongst those who worship him, since he wears a mask of one on his face.
Worshipers like to believe he is the ruler of the Underworld as well (even though he is truly not) and that they will be denied entrance to his throne room upon their deaths if they do not worship him.

Extra Information
Rhak'Sha is not considered a god at all. He is not even considered to be a Umar, even though that is his origin. The only thing that is known is that he is a powerful, powerful creature with dark intents.
Rhak'Sha is not know amongst the general populace. But he has been worshiped greatly within the city of Gil'Gaia in recent years.
Rhak'Sha has no emblem.
The rest of Rhak'Sha's body is covered by a dark cloak.
Rhak'Sha speaks with the voices of many, believed to be the voices of the dammed.

Khayyath, Goddess of Life

The Legend:
Khayyath’s origin is unknown, even among the Higher Gods themselves, legend has been saying. She was there before anything ever begun. Her name itself brings the meaning, “the ready-existing beauty”.

Myths and Traditions:
She is infamous for her exquisite beauty just as suggested by her name, and also, for her strange demeanour that is her strong liking for the absence of companions. Little is known about her, maybe because of her closed personality. What is known though, is that Khayyath gives life to anything she touches, be it with purpose or without. She is also known as the mother to the four main elements of water, earth, wind and fire, the first place being the element of water as it is known that water is the essence of life. This makes it that she is more often associated with water than the other elements, which explains why she is worshipped mostly in the temples of Azuriya. Arsia is always acquainted with Khayyath. In one version of the story, Arsia is one of her lady-in-waiting, in another, her half sister and in another, another identity of Khayyath herself though many opposes to the last version because of the huge differences in Arsia’s gentle nature and Khayyath’s mellowness. Very unlikely as it is, Khayyath’s true form is also unknown, despite the beliefs that she is one of the most beautiful goddess among the goddesses.

Khayyath’s amulets is famous among pregnant women, and among married couple with no children as she too, is the symbol of fertility. Her temples are often built near water sources, such as lakes and seas as she is said to be dwelling in watery surrounding and therefore loves visiting watery places. In incantations used by elements user, the name ‘Khayyath’ must be uttered to ask her to ‘lend’ them her power and later, uttered again to ‘thank’ her. But her most famous myth is the Elixir of Life, an extract of her power to bestow life upon dead people, and immortality to those who still alive. Travellers, Magik people and alchemists seek this legendary liquid since forever.

Emblem:

The four cross-like shape represents the four elements, the circle means the revolving world and the knots in the four cross-like shape means life. People carved this symbol onto their amulets, pendants, rings etc. etc.

Taking his duty to heart, Vaerus summoned up great waves to sink ships and made the waters flood to destroy great cities. This devastating time in history was known as the Deluge.
The spirits, overestimating Vaerus' power, imprisoned him in an ancient sunken temple.
Although his power has been weakened in side his prision, Vaerus may still summon up great waves and floods that destroy man.

Myths and Traditions
Vaerus is most worshiped in Mytlon, were they glorify water. But, in the Jahan region, his myth is told differently and is more portrayed as a "king of the sea" instead of a powerful force.

Symbols
Vaerus' symbol is a sword submerged in water with a sea serpent wrapped around it.
Some battle-ships carry this symbol on their flags.
