A Story of Beginnings - Ch. 3 - A Life Above Life
It was time to move on.Yet despite this, the four agreed that they simply couldn't walk away from a project they had invested so much in. There had to be something in their stead to watch over all they had done. It had to be something with the power to maintain and make change, but the knowledge of when and when not. It needed the one thing the Entities did not have: The ability to understand and empathize. To the Entities, this world was little more than a marble...a fascinating landscape with little creatures, but considering their colossal power, they were ultimately simple creatures. None of them understood love, loss, pride, jealousy, anger, sadness, happiness, right, wrong, good, nor evil. While they could view a man lose his child to a hungry lion, they would witness the same man hug his wife a bit more, and learn from the mistake to raise his next offspring to be better, more fitting. Likewise, when they saw a woman living in the lap of luxury, they also saw her take advantage of her fellow kin, treating them as subhumanoids and growing bitter and lonely. They were observers, and could only draw conclusions, unable to even understand if these guardians and creatures should be cared for or wiped out beyond their own will to witness. And so they discussed their plan to create higher beings to watch over domains they saw fit. These beings needed embody their purpose so they could better understand and empathize with the goal to guide these processes in the best way possible. And so they began with two humanoid forms and bound them together as sisters, the Goddess of Life and the Eos - Goddess of Death, for one was never without the other in their observance. Their names were chosen for the sound the essence made as it was shaped by The Giver, and then given life by The Beginning.
Life was introduced first, and slowly her eyes would open, staring into the great cosmos, far too small to fathom the scale of the Entities. "Hello, little one." A voice, seemingly from the beyond spoke, "This world is now your's to oversee and improve." And as she viewed the trees, the mountains, the creatures moving about, her eyes were alight with possibilities. Everything about her was crafted, from her looks and personality to her wonders and motivations, and in spritely, curious fashion, she began to observe high and low, asking questions such as 'What are these creatures?' and 'Why does this plant look like this?' All were answered, until she pointed to the mountains.
"And who looks after these?"And for that they had no answer. The Giver spoke, "Perhaps you should create life to watch over the mountains." And she was allowed to pull from their essence to create. Short in stature, but sturdy creatures, later that would be known as Dwarves, were crafted with a strong appreciate for the stones and minerals of the mountains, and shortly after, Gnomes to answer the question of 'What about even tinier places in the mountains?'
Their world was in the hands of the Gods now.
SummaryThe Entities grow restless and create the Gods to watch over their world so they can move on. They also craft the Realm of Light, Dark, and Shadow to assist with this. The - Goddess of Life creates Dwarves and Gnomes.
