  • Mom! Dad! Don't leave me!
  • Demeter saw his hard work, and when his parents died, decided he deserved something better.
  • Jasper, I am Demeter, goddes of agriculture. would you like to come to Mount Olympus with me?
  • She brought him to Mount Olympus, where he had the time of his life, until Jasper started to want more...
  • Wow! Mount Olympus is beautiful!
  • Welcome!
  • Ha ha! While Zeus is away, I'll take his lightning bolt! That way I will earn respect!
  • One day, Jasper stole Zeus' lightning bolt while he was away and escaped to Earth.
  • But the gods chased him relentlessly, until Artemis, goddess of hunting, caught him in a silver orb. That was the moon, which Artemis became the goddess of.
  • You shall suffer for your crimes!
  • Sparks from the lightning bolt in Jasper's attempt to escape became the stars. Now, Jasper serves as a reminder to people as not to make the gods unhappy, and also helps us have light at night.
  • And that is how the moon came to exist in our world.
