Legends of Cascadon
Chapter Four - Vengeance
In the wake of Aisha‘s death, the heavens were in upset, and many changes happened very rapidly. Kie cried the oceans into being, filling the great crevices with his tears, but this created vast deserts across the land where the water had been taken. From the sands, winds and Kie’s despair, Jaros arose, filled with Kie‘s loneliness and sorrow. He became warden of the deserts, both hot and cold. And in the waters, where Kie had left his anger and fear, there rose Kaisha, Goddess of the Sea. As an angry child, she governs the oceans, changing violently on a whim. When Aisha was cremated, Madock took her ashes, on behalf of Viedonna, and made a monument to Aisha – the moon. Madock knew, however, that it would not be safe if left uninhabited, and there was also the dream world which needed looking after, so he took some of Aisha’s ashes and a bit of sunlight to craft Zekiel , God of Dreams. An unintended side effect which did not become apparent until later was that Zekiel had the ability to see into the future through his dreams, and as such he became god of prophecy also.
During these changes, there was also the issue of what to do with Lethos. There was no way to control him, as all of the other gods had things to do, and not enough tact. So Vietomma came to Dalka with a proposition. With Dalka‘s ability to plan, and Vietomma’s cleverness (and willingness to be cruel), they could together produce a child to care for Lethos, without removing any of their own power. But it would mean that Dalka and Vietomma would have to lay together, which Taradessa was not particularly a fan of. But Taradessa could see the importance of a leash bearer for Lethos, and gave Dalka permission. However, she also sought the aid of old uncle Kittik to help her with a task. Taradessa had Kittik pop up to the moon and steal some parts of Aisha’s ashes to make another god (which left the craters in the moon. This new god, Justina, became the Goddess of Nobility and Justice. So when Dalka and Vietomma finished bringing Draven, God of Tactics, into being, he had to try to get to Lethos before Justina. Thus the battle of the gods raged on in Justina and Lethos, with Draven always intervening before either was killed.
To “Fight like rage and justice,” is the Cascadonian way of saying that the fighting was vicious and unending.
