One day Lawhue, Lise and Bairtaste were drinking and having fun. The topic of humanity came about. “I have an idea. A gift.” Bairtaste announced. Lawhue was uneasy. “Why don't we let them enjoy the gods wine” Lawhue held his cup. Lise spoke up. “Wine is for the gods and the gods alone. Humans are not allowed such things” Lawhue muttered under his breath. “No. But I'm bored and i think it would be rather interesting.” Lise looked at Bairtaste in the eyes. “All you care about is wine” Bairtaste laughed leaning back. “I wonder why.” Lise was skeptical. “Fine if you are going to give them a gift” she held her necklace. “I too shall give them a gift” Bairtaste laughed. “My gift of wine can outdo anything you could conjure” Lise looked down. “I shall show them love.” Bairtaste smirked. “Okay. I wajor you. Whichever gift humanity prefers the loser gets to exploit” they both turned to Lawhue drinking his tea. “Sound fair?” Lise held her tongue. Lawhue was sad. “I wish you wouldn't do this” there was a pause then a presence and then an agreement to continue. Lise and Bairtaste presented themselves among the ancestors. They each held an item. Bairtaste held a grape represenging lust and Lise held a necklace. Each human could only choose one. A third of the people chose the necklace and the rest chose the grape. Soon the town was enjoying themselves. The women were in love and the men were enjoying themselves. Bairtaste was disheartened. “It looks like I won brother.” Bairtaste scoffed and agreed to Lises terms. Lise held a finger and intertwined the rope of the necklace within the juices of the grape. From now on that of the lustful wine was to he a product of love. Bairtaste got upset. He grew angry. He felt people would not appreciate his gift as much. He complained to Lawhue. Lawhue sighed and looked at them both. He held his fists and took the necklace and took the grape and crushed them both. Lises gift was still in affect but no longer the mandate. Humans could now feel love without wine and have wine without love. And some Lawhue reasoned would desire neither of each. Lise sighed and crossed her arms and Bairtaste while unhappy agreed. This is how sex and love came to be.
One day there was a town notorious for it’s bad luck and lack of social stature. It was a town of work from the past that no longer had a place in society. It was of slums, and abuse and violence reigned. The town was prominent and poor. Soon occurrences began happening all around uncomfortably. The was reported by the media to be cursed. It became a phenomina and several priests were brought in. The town itself was of an old religion but Genwa was brought upon it in an act of desperation. There was priest of Genwa who came whom had long hair and covered with wear his eyes. Unknown to the people this priest was the god Ahue. The priests of the other religions tried to exorcise the beings. However all such works did were cut off the people's perceptions and in other areas the threats were still known. The priests of witchcraft got much done but it wasn’t enough. For the spirits returned causing havoc. Finally when Ahue came to the people of the town desperation was within grasp. Ahue instructed them to build a public alter and then carve symbols into their doors. The people refused such things. Ahue told them that the men of the town were to meditate and perform divination and ritual in their homes calling upon the forces of Genwa and directing the energy of the gods. The people complied with this request. The men of the town came to Ahue distressed. Claiming they could not feel the energies as instructed. Ahue told these men that their short hair was preventing them from being able to sense Genwa. Genwa is the life force of the universe. It is magick. It is the essence of which belief is based. It is a plain of existence that the spiritual resides in. Long hair is of Genwa. The hair of the head is symbolic of the ties of life within Genwa. Representing faith and nature. It is a spiritual act to grow out your hair. While you may still be spiritual having short hair will sensor your senses. The power of Genwa was rejecting them do to such a factor.
The men pleaded with Ahue. Ahue told them to bring him the women of the town. Several women appeared. The first one to approach Ahue came to him out of anger. “There is only one god. This is blasphemy” Ahue recoiled. “Any entity that tells you there is only one god, and that others are deceitful is trying to manipulate you, is lying to you, is false, or wants to control you.” The women fought back. “No. This is my faith. Your gods are that of demons. With wings and features of Satan himself” Ahue moved up to the woman's face. “Then your faith is wrong, I know not of your satan or your villainization of my people” Ahue walked to the stage of the town and the speakers turned on and the lights shown. Ahue took to the microphone. “We gods exist do to humanity. The essence of religion and genwa itself is fueled by the practises and faith of the people. Have you ever stopped to wonder why the gods of a culture so heavily reflect such things? Because people shape the gods just as much as the gods shape humanity. The nature of religion is one fueled by humanity. If enough practise is given regardless of the intention of such things eventually it will fall in to this world that you humans find yourselfs in. If enough beleif is spread acorss a faith it becomes real no matter the creator or conjurers or the prophets. Genwa is real and it is beyond you. It is no less real then your god, however for such a creator to ignore that of humanity's nature and that of religion itself claiming to be the sole being demanding such worship. That is a tactic I cannot endorse. How do you know that you are right? Have you seen signs? Have you heard the voice? Have you prayed and the outcome was favorable? Or in your mind the direct result? What makes you so special in this regard? What makes you different then the thousands of muslims, or hindus, or wiccans? They all claim such things as well. And they all believe such things to be true. To claim deception on the account of your devil is not only egotistical but greatly misinformed. Oh but you are you are the correct ones. You are supposed to be special? I have to laugh at such a notion. The nature of faith is one up for debate. It exists beyond this realm. While it is true you will be able to visit us and we you and eventually the worlds will combine such is not the case as of the moment leading to your rejection of me and my ways. Yet you still come to me bearing help and requests for a system that you yourself find false. I have to laugh. There have been signs throughout many religions. Because everybody is correct. There's a reason a christian describes heaven when he has a near death experience but a buddhist described reincarnation, that atheists describe nothing and that some simply can’t remember. Everything is real. Religion is real do to belief. I am real because of you and you are real because of me and to deny this on the basis of “I am right and everybody else is wrong” is pure foolery. Everything exists because everything is believed. While some may be here before you and many will be here after you this is not to be forgotten. It is truly disgraceful. I am real. Your god is real. Neither of us are more real than the other. Anyone who claims to be the only divine god is that of control. Yes. I would argue such things. Humanity is being controlled. You all sit all day and night not following your book accurately and then demand the changes you feel you deserve without the effort of your ancestors. Religion can change. It is prone to change. But such traditions are not to be forgotten. And the fact that your god would sit on his throne and wallow in your worship without landing a hand here on this day sickens me. I am to help you. But I am not to be forgotten. Nor are the words I spoke of here. Genwa is real. Humanity is real. And if you want my help you must follow my rules and pay homage in the ways I desire. Or such a fate as ill as the one that has befallen your town will be that of no mercy and I shall deny you reconciliation. Such is the way of your god.” He took a breath and then held his chest and looked upon the crowd in protest. “If you wish for my help you must respect me. You must honor me. And you must hold Genwa to a realistic standard that of which has not yet occured.” the lights turned off and a storm fell and amongst the chaos Ahue disappeared. He was now within the crowd. Many were surprised. Several in disbelief.
Ahue took his necklace and hummed a chant. Then he took his long hair and pushed it into a pony tale. He walked among the crowd and saw a woman recording. He snatched the phone from her and touched the screen returning it with the footage shaky, and blurred. Her mouth hung open. Then Ahue disappeared into the town. That night news circulated of the event many claiming prophecy, some blasphemy, others claiming history. Many people were confused though nothing was proven. In the hysteria of it all the town agreed to allow Ahue to carve symbols into the door and in the park for one day alone allowed an altar. Ahue went and gave each of the men fine wigs. He dressed them in traditional robes and formed a circle drawn in chalk. Then he gave them each an item and a woman was placed in the center. They chanted the hymns and the the storm raged on. Then there was silence. A week to the day the evil malice was gone. The holmes and the bad luck seemed to be no more. The people of the town thanked Ahue. The town soon fell to prosper with its luck returning. The slums of the town were renovated and the people were financially stable for such a time. Ahue departed to the peoples dismay and the town itself soon rejoiced in Genwa. The strange occurrences stopped occurring and Genwa was once more within the public eye. To this day Ahue can be called to a town for rejoices but only if proper decisions are made and Genwa is of the eye there.
One day Ahue was amongst the animals. He was having much fun. He flew down to humanity. He saw a town and hiding his wings and changing his forms he enjoyed himself amongst the people. He noticed the town was unruly. The men were brash and the women silent. However he kept his tongue although this worried him. Working with the people and becoming accustomed there. However he soon noticed something was off. The people spoke of an odd game. The feelings of the humans were brash. Ahue covered his right eye and looked upon the town. There he saw beings in the form of worms, shadows, and jellyfish. They were not of this world. So he appeared to the locals and told them of Genwa in the guise of a preist. Now it is said not to force the word of Genwa upon those unwilling but rather those of an open mind and curiosity. He told the locals that there were spiritual parasites among them. Feeding off the negativity within the town. Causing mayhem and panic. Deluding the children, and the mentally ill. Causing false grandeur, voices, and holding false promises of games these things were how they played with their victims. A town meeting was called and all 7 of the men in council denied him. Saying Genwa was that of fiction. Ahue warned them that even if not a system of Genwa they were to rid the town of such things. The people continued to bash him. 3 of the women within the town came to him that night. They spoke of nightmares, thoughts not of their mind and strange urges they begged Ahue to help them despite not being of his face. Ahue told them within the darkness that he would.
Ahue gave them special plants to light ablaze and sacred incantations. Lastly he gave each of them a sigil of Genwa to hang upon their doors. The three women the next day went about the process within their homes in secret. Several weeks later the town abrupted into mayhem and chaos. The people began to murder each other, accuse each other and fight each other many things. The town was in total madness. However the three women who came to Ahue and their families remained unaffected. Amongst the madness Ahue took to the women. He had them and their families grab their things and travel with him through train away.
As soon as the family was at a safe distance Ahue took off his disguise. His ears became pointed. His wings outreached. And he flew to the town sinking it within a quake. The town was forgotten and Ahue returned to the women. They thanked him. Ahue gave them the book of Genwa and taught them many things. Ahue said that certain practises can bring about negative energies if precautions aren’t taken. That negative emotions or meer tinkering could bring about an evil entity among you. Ahue’s actions that day are a clear indicator of why we should never go about magick or spirituality without taking proper procedures. And even if you are not of magick that you shouldn't be afraid to rid and protect yourself of such entities.
It is to be noted that the gods do not procreate the ways human do. When the gods wish to have children it is a conscious choice. The god takes their blood, and essence then after ritual they will themselves to give new life. However the gods are not without sex. In Fact many rituals involve such wine. However for the gods sex is usually for that pleasure or ritual nothign more. One day Bairtaste was among humanity. He was with a young man named Raltuv with whom he fell in love. The human warned Bairstatse that his society would not approve of their love. His town justified this by a man and a man not being able to bear children. Bairtaste was surprised for their relationships of their kind was the norm of Genwa. The human assured him such secrets must be kept. Bairtaste understood and held his lovers hand and he gave him his nacklace and a kiss. That night the two of the men were of wine and discovered. The boys mother in a rage murdered him. Bairtaste cried and angered he cursed humanity. He said if humanity was so happy having men and womens love be that only of what they considered pure that they should be separated so that love like that may remain such. That they shall no longer be societally the same and forced in roles of separation accordingly until love such as that of him and Raltuv was given a place in society. Bairtaste bit his thumb and pushed it into the dirt. From that day on women and men were separated by rules and laws of the humans creation. Then Bairtaste went up to the women and cursed her. So that her and anyone like her would be in pain for the creation of new life.

One day Challno was fighting with his father Occeair. He was resentful. He called Bia out of spite to visit him. He asked Bia what she knew of the mortal cycle. Bia replied that such matters belonged to Ahue. Challno then traveled to the realm of Tarae. Tarae was the plain at which the gods dwelled ruled over by Tano. Their were 3 realms in Genwa. Xia of the sky and spirits, Jikau of the core and regular humans, Kaida of the soul where the prophets, divine, and favored mortals went. Outside of these places lay the kingdom of Tano. This is where the Genwa gods reign and no mortal may enter. Ahue was in his home enjoying that of wine and berries. He had with him a mortal man named Giver. Challno knocked on his door 4 times. Ahue answered. Challno noticed his lover but finding the law of Genwa unjust allowed no mention. The three sat down and discussed many things.
Challno thought kesser of humans. Yet was curious as to how we thrive life after life. Ahue explained that a mortals life was dictated by their actions. Regardless of whether they were good or bad they would cycle one life after another ruled by other forces until Koahat and her followers came to them presenting option then leaving to Jikau. Challno leaned back. He questioned Occeair as Ahue explained such things were different for him given his divinity. Ahues lover spoke up. Giver said that perhaps if he wished to understand humanity he live among them. Challno laughed. Upon realizing he was serious Ahue sighed. “What use would this do for me?” Ahue raised his hands “understanding comes from association” Challno was bored so he agreed. He flew down to earth and lived among the primitive humans for t fourty eight days. However he was soon disgusted. They were of fur, nakedness without language and of noise.
He called down Lawhue for help. Lawhue heard his concerns and devised a system of empowerment. He painted a picture of the gods and humans at bae. Then he crafted a spell of elements and created rules for the earth to abide by within the chaos. He said as the system stood right now that everything was of magick. However with these new implementations and time he could give the world natural phenomena without such a thing. Humans like other species could change and thus become greater to match near the gods.
Challno agreed and waited a day. Playing with the animals of Ixa. He flew to humanity again. Now centuries ahead. For time moves differently for the gods than man. The modern humans carried a more pleasant form. Still near of the gods but lacking distinctive characteristics. They had rounded ears, straightened teeth and less diverse hair. Challno became accustomed to the ways of humanity. He became more and more a friend to us. However something bothered Challno. He hated the societies humanity had given ourselves. The rules we followed. Disgusted by our division and debates over what we felt was true. Challno became angry. He devised a plan.
He would live among humanity for five hundred and eighty seven years. In this time he would spread Genwa ideals throughout humanity. He would preach and tell others of the word. His father Occeair scolded him. Saying such things were not to be done. That humanity was to learn of Genwa by itself. Challno was furious. He said that Genwa was responsible for its followers. That any tragedy that befalls them is of Genwa. And any successes is just as much deserving. Thus humanity is to know of the gods and where to pay tribute. Occeair silenced him and spoke covering his right eye. Whispering “when the time comes humanity shall learn. But until then, we must have patience and not interfere” Challno was bursting now. He yelled to the streets of the gods. Nobody listened. He pledged on that day that he was to cause calamity and damage to those of this word. And cause disruption across all faiths out of anger. Occeair warned against this. He told his son that if he were to do such things great sadness would eventually befall Genwa and that every action has an equal reaction. Challno couldn't take his words back. He made one last promise. He promised humanity against those who wrong it. And that the word of Genwa shall prevail. Occeair looked down covering both his eyes. “You have made a grave mistake” Challno laughed.
He bit into his thumb and took the blood to the dirt. Thus the promise was of him. Challno received a vision of the future events that would befall Genwa, it’s prophets and followers and the religions of the land that would rule until the final days. He fell to the floor crying of pain. He looked up to Occeair asking for remorse. Occeair offered his hand. “You have one chance.” Challno thought carefully. In his mind an hour. He then looked Occeair in the right eye and said quietly “We shall walk among them” then he whispered a secret request to Occeair that shan’t be repeated beyond the two and took Occeairs arm shaking it. Occeair asked “is this what you desire?” Challno let go and frowned. “It is what I wish”. And thus Genwa was hidden from the world until the modern day with Challno living in secret among us.
One day Challno was out partying in the modern world. He was enjoying himself amongst the people. He covered his eyes so nobody would notice he was of the gods. He made his way drunk into a town. There he noticed the people were not of Genwa. The men had short hair like himself. The men and womens clothing were separated by presentation. Challno was irritated by this. He conjured several tombs of his word.
He gathered several people within the town through commotion and sung of his exploits. The humans laughed and jeered. Many mocking. Never revealing or knowing it was him. There he noticed a human man paying serious attention. He realized upon looking at the man's eyes it was Occeair. He said to Occeair “come now help me persuade these humans in the ways of Genwa” Occeair looked around nervously. He told Challno he did not know him or of Genwa. Challno released a mighty laugh. He taunted Occeair. “It is you my brother. Do not deny Genwa” the woman with Occeair held her mouth.
Occeair whispered not above a breath. “Not here.” Challno was insulted but clever. He commanded Occeair to follow him to a restaurant. It was a long drive full of catching up, jokes and uncertainty. Occeair being in mortal form obliged. Sitting down in the establishment Challno mocked humanity. Claimed they were not of Genwa's likeness. Occeair bit his tongue. Then Challno ordered a plate of berries, vegetables and fruit. He asked Occeair three riddles.
“What moved through the skys. Pushes people. And can be created by humans?” Occeair thought for a moment. “Wind” he responded. Challno awarded him a berry. Challno held a tomato. “What sort of love creates a universe?” Occeair recognized the riddle but refused to answer. Challno coughed and threw the tomato to the ground. Soon within distant sparks the people in the restaurant began to cough, and bleed and scream. Occeair demanded an answer. Challno laughed “you failed my riddle friend.” Challno held the last fruit an orange. “What is pink, coiled and thought provoking?” Occeair sighed. “a brain. Something you seem to lack ” then Challno accepted defeat amongst the screams.
He took his arm to Occeair. “This story will be recalled and Genwa shall reign” Occeair was insulted. “We exist separately from humanity. Our world is not meant to be proven” “is it not?” Challno asked. “Are we to sit back, to humanities scrutiny, disregard, false dichotomy and prejudice” Occeair looked at him. “Genwa is not meant to be proven” Challno laughed. “If that is how you feel” he snapped his fingers and the restaurant combust fully now in flames. “Explain this to the people of the city bearing Genwas name. Occeair fell his hands in his face his breath a panicked state. “Tell then. That the gods are watching. And that disregard for Genwa shall be punished.” Occeair sighed. The authorities arrived and Occeair was held in a cell.
A lawyer arrived taking him out. Occeair was silent. He was released. “I got you off. They had nothing to hold you to the burning of the restaurant.” The lawyer said. “But I don't think it was wise to anger Challno in such a way.” Occeair blinked. Amongst the night. “Then you are-” The lawyer sighed. “Lawhue.” Occeair sat back. “It is real isn't it?” the god looked at his friend. “Yes. But you know that already.” He sat down on the curb with Occeair. “You will be asked several questions throughout the week. When it is over mention Genwa even if in passing.” “Do you agree with him?” Occeair asked. “I think not. But this event was written of before. You must have known. Genwa preserves itself in the minds of the people. However it must” Occeair sat down. Lawhue joined him. “What is fate?” Occeair asked. Lawhue responded. “Everything has a destiny. Even that of the gods. Choice of will is an illusion.” Occeair asked what he was to do. Lawhue responded “give him an offering of 7 cherries. Bury them where you can. And mention this story when questioned after some time.” “Are they to know I am Occeair?” Occeair asked. Lawhue offered his hand. “Some things can't be helped.” Occeair spoke of a secret and they shook. Every february 6th. The tragedy is known as Challnos day. In honor of the victims food is donated by followers of Genwa to those in need. While fruit and cherries are eaten by the followers and wine is essence in private.
One day the sun was feeling tired. So she went into her bedroom in Ixa. She gazed at the clouds in front of her and felt sadness. She looked for meaning. She came to her niece the earth for advice. Yena said to her “how is your wife where has she been?” the sun began to tear. Yena recoiled. Yena the earth asked the sun if she was okay. She wiped the gold from her face and spoke.
“She has been gone for thirty three nights and eighty eight days.” Yena distressed looked at her. Yena then asked where the moon had been off to. She replied with women, men, and wine. Yena understood immediately. Yena asked if she wished to leave her love. She replied she did but could not exist without being seen and she was bound to the moon. Yena told the sun to call upon Ahue. Ahue was the god of rule and order. He was of passage in essence though regardless always male in form. Yena continued to tell the sun that all matter between Genwa entities and humanity's laws were of him. The sun replied she was neither deity nor human. The earth responded that Ahue being of passage meant that she would be within his jurisdiction unless she wished to travel to another pantheon.
The sun then asked holding her hands to her chest what was the reason truly necessary to call upon Ahue. The earth Yena responded over her own existence. Power is derived within the realm of Genwa by observation and notoriety. If you are observed or within the eye the more power you as a deity or being will accumulate within your essence. The sun exists do to her relation with the moon. But if she wanted to exist on her own she must ask Ahue to give her custody of Yena in observation.
The sun agreed though saddened by such a fact. She gathered several moonstones. One for each hour of the day. She drew a square with the names of celestial spirits on each corner for protection. She evoked the wind, pointing left, the ocean pointing right, the earth pointing down and herself pointing up. Then she spun and chanted a hym. She placed a pair of scones in the center. Offerings to Ahue must be either sweet, sour, or taste of spice. After rituals Ahue’s offerings must be left out for 3 days then either be thrown away, or burned.
The sun obliged the rulings. Then she sat and mediated. If she were mortal she would have felt nothing but cold air or his presence if anything representative at all. But it is to be known Ahue always comes when he is called. He is kind and will observe even if anccident. Ahue appeared in a blaze of smoke. He appeared as a man. Topless in royal garb with gauntlets formulating into hammers for hands. His face wihout eyes yet his mask presenting one. His voice was young. His figure tall. He looked at her with patience. Asking her, her desire.
The sun held her breath. She asked for dictation over the earth. Ahue laughed. Then stoic as always responded. “I request three reasons?” And the sun sat down. She replied “I wish to be observed. For a spirits observation is their entirety in Genwa. The moon has left to wine with others leaving me broken and distressed. I wish to exist on my own” he took the gavels of his hands.
Then he took the sun's heart out of hrer body he then smashed it within the gavels. The heart broke into 12 pieces. Then Ahue took the pieces between the gavels and smashed them whole once more returning the sun her life. Ahue looked up then down. He spoke into existence that the sun would preside over the earth 12 hours every day separated from the moon. These hours would be observed different depending on location. Thus the moon and the sun would always be observed at the same time.
Ahue bowed and took the scones. He in a storm like thunder vanished. The sun cried rejoicing. She felt power within her. She knew as a result of this ritual that she would rarely reside with the moon at the same time again. Only moments to humans would allow such things. However a moment to a human could be centuries to a Genwa spirit. This is the story of why the moon appears at night and the sun appears during the day.
Occeair was bored one evening sailing on the shore of the seventh sea. Writing down poetry he called upon the serpent Anli to have a conversation. They talked of many things. One of which was the duality and mortality of the gods. This displeased Occeair. He didn't like to think of things of that nature. He asked the serpent what it's thoughts were on life.
The serpent laughed at the question taunting Occeair of the gods mortality. The gods lived long lives. But they were not infallible. They could die. They could be harmed. They could be killed. They are only immortal as long as nobody interferes. This thought paced Occeair’s brain as the crushing weight of what the serpent Anli had told him panicked the boy.
He sat down holding his chest. “you know” the serpent hissed. “they say” he paused. “that there's a recipe for immortality.” Anli slithered into Occeairs boat. “I could help you find it”. A tear paced Occeairs cheek. “you could?” “yes” assured the serpent. “I'll take you up on that”. He smiled a wide toothed grin. “can I trust you?” asked the god. “quite” the serpent smiled. Then the serpent laid out instructions for the recipe of immortality.
They would gather the tears of the void, the heart of the earth, and the dust of the sun. They would brew this mixture in a fire created from the anger of Coa the thunder god. This essence would sprout a plant and all who ate from it would live an never-ending life. Occeair wasn't sure about the creation of this mixture so he asked why the ingredients were all divine. Quick with his words golden in voice the serpent responded that the essence needed to be of divine nature for immortality was a divine creation. Satisfied, Occeair adjusted his mass and began to sail his boat into the sky. He sailed into the sun and greeted him and the moon.
They greeted him with open arms and asked what they could do for him. Occeair responded with the serpent's request. Uneasy the sun responded that he would do this for him but in exchange he must find 3 of the oceans cattle and bring it back to him. Occeair agreed and went off to the 4th sea. He took fire and whipped the cattle onto the mass of the ship. He flew back up to the sun. The sun was displeased. He had brought four cattle instead of the three requested.
He sent the fourth away with Occeair on his journey. The sun then took his long hair and a towel. He rang the towel through his hair brushing off crust. He handed it to Occeair. Occeair showed his gratitude with a bow, and took off. The moon asked before he left to be included in the concoction so that her and the sun might always shine in the sky. Occeair agreed and went back into the sea. Occeair sat in his boat trying to figure out how to reach the sky. When an idea hit him like a flash. He would sail to the outskirts of stars and greet Drena the mother void. Occeair sailed off, and finally reached the stars. There he talked to the sky as she guarded earth. “I would like for you to cry” spoke Occeair. “I cannot do this for you” Replied the void. “Why not?” asked Occeair. “Because I can't do such things on a whim” replied the void. So Occeair in a fit of desperation and impulsivity took out his trusty flaming whip and gift from Koga which he used to tie her fingers to the back of her wrist. Out of her pain tears began to pour and Occeair caught them in a vile.
The sky then grew angry and demanded Occeair release her from her pain. However when Occeair tried the whip became stuck on her finger nail. She screamed and pleaded with Occeair to solve the problem. Occeair was able to go down to Jikau and steal a branch from one of the trees there. Using it’s bark he was able to put a small barrier between her nail and that of the whip. It lasted for some time before snapping and hitting her eyes. Her vision grew clouds and she became furious.
Having done this with a clear conscious Occeair ran away to retrieve the fire from Koga. He went down to Jikau bashing his way among the guards until Koga greeted him. Koga having only met his sibling twice before, once at birth and second at a funeral asked what of his presence there. Occeair explained his scenario. Koga became angry at the notion of the serpent giving out this information and fires begun to assimilate. With a sly grin, Occeair quickly captured the fire’s in a vile and ran back to his boat.
Having all the ingredients. Occeair went to the stars and there he invited the sun, the sky, the moon, Koga, the earth, and Lise for a show. “Why have you called us here?” Asked the angry Drena. “Haven’t you caused enough trouble Occeair?” Then Occeair took out a drum with no cover and poured all the ingredients together within it. He added a lid and banged on it four times and out came a golden fluid. The serpent then explained that if put in the ground four trees would grow and bear fruit that if frequently consumed would grant immortal life every 1000 years. One of the trees would cause invisibility. One would heal. One would cause eternal youth and beauty. The last one would grant immortal life.
Now pleased with Occeair the gods argued over where to plant such trees. Each god wanting the tree within their own kingdom. Ahue settled the dispute. He never asked for for the tree and mandated order. The gods agreed and by Ahues degree settled on Jikau for it was near the earth’s core and thus the most vibrant for planting. Yena who was one with the earth could also attend to it there for Jikau was close to her heart. Occeair with the serpent then went down to the underworld to plant the mixture.
However at the last moment the serpent Anli tried to take it for himself. He quickly grabbed the drum and bit into it trying to consume the mixture. Occeair strangled him until he let go giving Koga his spine. After Occeair stopped him he was only able to keep half of the mixture untainted from the serpent's venom. Instead of four trees only 3 were able to be created. Devastated at the loss of the trees but satisfied with the one bearing fruit, the god Koga put up 7 regular trees to guard the underworld so that the tree of life and his kingdom which guarded it may not be disturbed by outsiders. After this Anli the Serpent was sentenced to a sea of salt where he may never interfere again. To this day the gods still eat the fruit from the tree of life.
