  • In the beginning, there was Night and Day. Between these two was Mother Earth. Earth was loved by both Night and Day, flowering with life, sheltering many animals and creatures on her land. Both Night and Day sought after her constantly. However, Night was selfish, and wanted to take Earth all for himself. He stole and kept her for himself and constantly surrounded her in his darkness. Earth did not like this however. She became severely depressed and began to cry endlessly. Her tears filled around her and would soon drown her if she didn't stop. Thus, Night quickly allowed Day to visit Earth again, and thus Earth stopped crying, but not soon enough to cover most of her in her tears. Earth was not alone however. From her tears she wiped away everything that lived on her. From the dead came the sole survivors of her downpour, man and woman. The two were considered “mutants”, due to their ability to survive not only on land, as normal men and women do, but also in the sea and in the air, having wings to fly and webbed hands and gills to breathe and swim in water. Thus, they began to rebuild and regrow the Earth, populating it will healthier and more powerful animals and creatures to survive, all descending from the original “mutant” man and woman.
  • All kinds of species were created from these superior beings, each taking a trait from the “mutants” and enhancing it to become their own. These species helped shape Mother Earth to fit their specific needs. All species worked together and each took the spaces they were best suited to live in, fish and sea creatures living in Mother Earth’s tears, now known as the ocean, birds and winged creatures claiming the sky, and the rest of the “legged” creatures to roam the land. But from these species, man once again emerged superior to all, being the wisest and most beneficial of all species. Due to their “mutated” ancestors, man received arguably the best trait of any creature, being an enhanced mind. However with this mind came an intense greed. Man became increasingly arrogant and greedy and sought to take everything for themselves, no matter the consequences that followed. Man began to take over most of the areas of the land, and soon began to fight the animals living there over their homes.
  • With man’s superior mind, they created tools and weapons to help them fight and gain the advantage over the animals, and soon sought to conquer all areas of Mother Earth, being land, sea, and sky. Over a series of 365 days, man finally subdued the animals to select amounts and claiming most of the land for themselves, building large monuments and buildings in celebration to repopulate on Mother Earth. They also decided that every 365 days, they would start over to keep track of the day they began their “new” lives. Man continues to pillage and take more and more areas from the animals, claiming them as their own. The animals are so outclassed they have little reason to fight and simply cannot fight back anymore, being slaughtered and left to die in the wake of man's greed.
