Rosissa and the Lyre of Solitude
As legend has it, an Arenai named Rosissa played a lyre gifted to her from The Curious Muse themself. She traveled the rather small world of Kairas and played to the delight of her audiences from deity region to region. The lyre seemed to amplify and illustrate the music as Rosissa played. Vignettes depicting the melody in various swirls and circles glowed soft amber and jade all around her. The people loved it. She did so well that she started to amass followers who showered her with adoration and love. Rosissa loved the attention and basked in it, playing more and more. Finding great success and renown. People clamored for her to visit and showered her with gifts when she played. This upset The Wild, sibling to The Curious Muse. The Wild thought more adoration and love should go to The Curious Muse rather than Rosissa. Although not wanting to anger their sibling, The Wild wanted to punish Rosissa for not giving more credit for her success. For not entreating her new followers to adore The Muse instead of her. A being of chaotic temperament, it took mere moments for The Wild’s decision to impact Rosissa—the lyre changed from its golden luminescent color to a somber gray in her hands. When Rosissa played, instead of people following and enjoying her melodies, people moved away. While the music still rang beautifully to Rosissa’s ears, something about it caused melancholy in her audiences. They wept and felt guilt and misery. Over time she found herself alone every time she played the lyre. Unsure of what she had done wrong, she put the instrument away and never played it again.
There is a parable found in many of the libraries of Rosissa and the Lyre of Solitude. The lyre in these stores is more intricate in design and color. Its powers, both before and after, are amplified.
There are very beautiful designs of the lyre and Rosissa in literature found.
