Occeair was a god known for his emotions and deeds. Feminine in appearance and often mistaken for female he was the most insecure of the gods. Now it's true that the gods can disguise themselves in mortal form but this was not good enough for Occeair. Wanting a male form he went on a journey of transformation. One day Tano was watching his 2 favorite dogs play.
Occeair approached him. Occeair asked Tano since he held knowledge of everything how to go about changing his essence. Tano told Occeair that he must take his own heart and rebirth it in the lake of fire. There his essence would be destroyed and rebuilt in whatever form he liked. Occeair asked where he could find such a lake. Tano responded in Jikau the underworld. Occeair then journeyed down to the seventh garden. The gates to the underworld were hidden within the a rosemary bush guarded there.
The bush was protected by 7 tall and sturdy trees. Occeair told the first tree. "it is I Occeair. I command you to let me pass" the first tree bowed it's branches recognizing Occeair's divinity. Then the second tree much more stubborn and easily angered looked upon Occeair in disgust. "Why should I let you pass?" Occeair then plucked an apple growing from the tree and held it towards the wooden face. "Because if you don't I will pick you off just like this apple and then burn your seeds so you may never grow again". And the second tree bowed and moved its branches.
The third tree was to shy to speak so Occeair gave it a kiss and it bowed its branches. The fourth tree refused to let Occeair pass. So Occeair cut off one of its branches in an attempt to blind it. Fearing for its vision the fourth tree bowed its branches. The fifth tree said it would let him pass only if he could solve a riddle. "What sort of love creates a universe" Occeair whispered the answer within the trees leaves and he bowed his branches. The sixth tree was friendly with Occeair having been friends before his punishment and let him pass with ease.
The seventh tree held his guard so Occeair blinded him and haunted the tree with pain until he bowed his branches. Satisfied Occeair bit his apple and walked into the depths of Jikau.
Walking past the desert heat he found himself a small home. Belonging to 3 of the underworld’s souls.
Together they ate soup and drank wine. Satisfied with his meal, Occeair gave his signature necklace that of an hourglass to the youngests of the 3 spirits as payment. "Use this well". He then walked towards the kingdom of Jikau. The guards halted him. And asked him of his presence. "I am Occeair of Den and I command you to let me pass." the guards laughed. "and why should we?" Occeair lifted his shirt revealing the lighting scar left by Erip.
They quickly allowed him entrance. Occeair then seeked council with Koga. Koga looked upon his old friend with a saddened glance. "I'm afraid I cannot do this for you." outraged by how far he'd come Occeair demanded answers. "You have eaten the porridge of the 3 spirits and drunk their wine have you not?" "yes" replied Occeair. "Then you are now of the Jikau and I cannot offer you any assistance." Outraged Occeair took a knife and held it to Koga's neck. Quick on his feet Koga turned into a wolf to avoid Occeair's wrath but the knife slipped falling on Oceair's heart and ending Occeairs life.
Saddened by the loss of her lover, Lise was unable to leave her bed. Unable to cope with the pain of losing Occeair Yena their mother gave him a limited life. Just like each of the seasons come and go so would Occeair in life after life. When one life died he would be reborn which was a gift granted to him by the god of the underworld Koga. Koga felt guilt for the death. This gift carried on to each and every human. Lawhue and Ahue developed a system of reincarnation to sort each life after the next.
All of this was done on a condition. Occeair must not recall memories of his divinity while human less he lose his humanity breaking his cycle. For everything given something must be lost of equal value such is the rule of the universe. Sacrifices must always be made and this was the cost to be paid. Yena agreed and took Oceairs heart and sliced it in two. She placed the pieces on the tree of Jikau known as Ja. Lise cut her hair and gave it to the tree. From the tree birthed an infant girl and an infant boy thus the first humans were born. Occeair's cycle carried to humanity. Each human would have life after the next on a limited cycle like Occeair. However unlike Occeair these lives would eventually end leading them to the realm of Jikau.
They say that Occeair's robin Noco still keeps an eye on every life Occeair leads to this day.
Every 10 reincarnations Occeair is brought back to godhood for a 100 years. Temporarily remembering his life and place Then when the cycle is over he says goodbye and goes back to humanity. Every life he is knowledgeable of his past but can never remember it. Some say when the gods are forgotten Occeair will remember and permanently end his human cycle then reclaim his divinity forever. He will then stand with the gods and win victory.
