Vael-Aszindi

Vael-Aszindi

Origin

According to the Book of Sacrifice, after the goddesses Anasara, Eresh, and Kulüth had finished building their home, Vael-Anadar, a world beyond mortal comprehension, the three sisters reveled in the perfection that they had wrought. They took great pride in the glorious beauty of the world that they had made, but in time, their satisfaction waned. Their desire for creation could not be satiated – in them arose a burning desire to create something different, and so they rent existence to forge another world, a second plane beneath their home.

Vael-Aszindi, the Second World, was brought into being, and in it, the goddesses created all manner of exotic environments that teemed with unfathomably diverse creatures. However, once they had finished their work and began to examine what they had done, for all its wonder, nowhere in their new world could they find anything that could appreciate their creation like they did. They sought far and wide for creatures that could express and create things for itself, but found nothing, and so they decided to make such beings in their image.

Like pouring water from a full vessel into an empty basin, each sister poured out her desires into the new creature. Anasara’s desires became the essence of language and morality, for she sought to become a guide; Eresh’s desires took on the form of weakness and death, for she sought to dominate; and Kulüth’s desires culminated in emotion and free will, for she wanted to be surprised.

From the union of their desires, the first human lives were born.
