Amaterasu

We fear all rejection yet crave other's endearment. We are haunted by failure yet we all dream of achieving perfection… Our existence is a tad bit contradictory, isn't it?

Image╔╗
"Light thinks it travels faster than anything in this world...but it's wrong. No matter the speed it travels, Light will always find that Darkness has gotten there first, awaiting for it's enemy arrival.
~~~
Despite how well you may think you know a person, remember this, my dove; we are all like the moon. In accordance to our inner light, we still have a dark portion that rarely is ever seen. "

FULL NAME
      Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami (大日孁貴神) || 'The Great Goddess in Heaven'
      Amaterasu-ōmikami (天照大御神) || "The Great August God Who Shines in the Heavens"
      Amaterasu (天照) || 'Shining in Heaven'

NICKNAME(S)
      Kōgō Heika (皇后陛下) || 'Her Majesty, the Empress' is often a popular way to address Amaterasu outside of the Goddess's presence (ei; in a normal exchange between 2 people).
      Denka (殿下) || 'Your Royal Highness', often Denka can either be used after her full title or just a stand-alone nickname.
      The Light of Heaven || A title that humans often associate her with, Amaterasu despises this name due to how informal she views it being.
      Ama, Rasu, Teru || Only those who know her on a personal level (or are brave enough) will refer to Amaterasu using these titles as they are extremely informal and may be seen as disrespectful.

GOD TYPE
      Legendary God(dess) of the Sun and Moon.

GENDER
      Female

AGE
      Essentially ageless, Amaterasu has forgotten the number completely. However, it is often said she is among the oldest of gods.

SPECIES
      Hari-onago (針女) || A monstrous yokai that takes form as an ethereal and beautiful woman, she is often seen wandering about the streets of Shikoku during the night. With hair pinned up into a traditional style and an intricate kimono, many often mistake this species as being a human member of the high-class which leads to the unsuspecting persons to approach them. A hari-onago, when having a victim close in on her, will let out a coy laugh and a bat of her eyelashes. Should the other party respond with a laugh or a flirtatious wink, then she will attack. Removing the comb that secured her hairstyle, her tresses will tumble down to the ground to reveal each strand to be barbed and needle-like at the points. Possessing full control over her hair, a hari-onago can command each strand individually to ensnare her victim, the barbs and sharpness sinking into their flesh with a strength so great that not even Sumo wrestlers can escape. After killing and tearing up her victim past recognition with blinding speed, a hari-onago will pin her hair up once more before continuing with her stroll down the road, searching for a new victim.

SEXUALITY
      || Lithromantic ||
      A romantic orientation on the asexual spectrum which describes an individual who feels romantic attraction towards others, but who does not desire reciprocation of that attraction or does not wish to enter a romantic relationship. (Please note that romantic orientation is separate from sexual orientation.)


Who in the world am I? Ah, thats the great puzzle, now isn't it?

HEIGHT
      5'6''

WEIGHT
      135 lbs

HAIR COLOR
      Always secured, safely, atop her head with pins and bobbles, Amaterasu's hair colour is just as unique as her eyes. Depending on the lighting, each strand can shine with either raven, navy blue, or steel highlights. Cashmere-esque to touch, almost anyone would be fooled by her species... until she lets the waterfall tumble down, that is. Piling generously on the ground, upon further inspection, it can be observed that each individual hair has lethal barbs traveling their length with a point as tapered as a needle.

EYE COLOR
      A truly odd colour, many find difficulty in describing this goddess's hue to others. While some may argue they are of an olive tone, others will, often, refute that the orbs are actually mocha in nature...and then you have the few who, boldly, claim her eyes are onyx gems. Oddly enough, all three would be correct due to Teru's gaze almost always being in a constant flux, not a single coloration more dominant than another.

SKIN TONE
      A stark alabaster, the Moon goddess, fittingly, possesses a faint illumination to her skin.

GENERAL APPEARANCE
      She has no changes from her God form to this form. So just use the pictures please~

PERSONALITY
      ✦ Sadistic ✧ Malevolent ✦ Cunning ✧ Deceptive ✦

      Amaterasu, in short, can be described as a mysterious and complicated woman with a personality that mirrors her appearance in elegance and ethereal presence. With rumors of being a ruthless monster, despite how her minions may argue against that, this goddess does little to nothing to refute the claims.. after all, she is well aware of the truth in those whispers. Guaranteed through her presence in a room to stir up conspiracies, manipulations, deceptions and betrayal, she finds no pity or remorse in allowing those around her to succumb to the darkness she holds within. In fact, she finds it rather comforting to be the source of taint.

      Despite being labelled as belonging to the Heavens, Amaterasu can't help but allow herself to scoff at such a notion. With abnormally fluid morals that allow for herself to dispose of others at whim, she finds a twisted enjoyment in using third-parties to test her 'victims' and their capacity for tolerance, sometimes to the point of driving said targets to suicide. Of course, that thought doesn't bother her.. in fact, she will reminisce about their ultimate deaths while sipping tea. A true sadist at heart, this goddess possesses an intense obsession with making others bend to her while, to become subservient to her...and, usually, she will stop at nothing to gain one's loyalty if they manage to catch her eye.

      Outwardly, Ama restrains her inner boastful nature to put very little emphasis on her person, many taking this act as her being 'selfless', 'compassionate', and 'trustworthy'. Highly experienced in sowing the harvest of other's sympathies and devotions, she has the previous mentioned approach to thank for this. Without feeling guilt, Rasu easily manipulates and takes advantage of said loyalties, often making each individual do things they rather not do... such as killing or tormenting those who oppose her. Of course, this is all 'under the table' as she would never let the truth come to light..especially so regarding the topic of how much she enjoys tainting and sabotaging the happiness of her servants. And should they, her followers, ever question the ethics of their actions? This goddess will simply whisper sweet words to them before enveloping their being into a hug, causing their cares to melt away. The most interesting fact? She often finds herself doing the most damage to those she says she cares deeply about....possibly because she wants them to understand her.

LIKES
      ✦Flowers - The only thing that Amaterasu will admit to, openly and secretly, that is more beautiful than her own person. Possessing a high admiration for the plants, you can always find the ones she has hand-picked in her ikebana arrangements around her house.. her favourite? Crimson spider lilies.
      ✧Tea - Adoring the complex notes and the refinement associated with drinking tea, it has become Ama's routine to constantly have a tea pot ready to pour on the off chance she has visitors.
      ✦Fashion - A symbol of her status and power within her society, this goddess takes an impressive amount of pride in her 'babies'. With closets upon closets lined with kimonos, yukatas, hadajubans, cheongsams and other various oriental dressings in thousands of color combinations, it is Amaterasu's joy in life.
      ✧Her Pipe - Possessing a gold and mahogany kiseru pipe, you can almost always find the object nestled in this goddess's right hand, puffs of blue-gray smoke twirling out from it's opening.
      ✦Fans - As made quite obvious by her choice of weapon and her favourite type of dance, Rasu holds a strange fascination with oriental fans.
      ✧The Moon - Her 'old friend', the Moon was there for her long before anyone else was. Adoring the luminous planet to no end, Teru can still be found carrying out with her old tradition of reading poetry to it..especially so on nights when it is full.
      ✦Kana - Despite her attempts not to grow close to others, Teru has found herself emotionally latching onto the Yuki-Onna. Reminding her quite a bit of Ai, her own daughter, it is quite evident that this goddess treats this particular servant and her husband differently from the rest of her minions.

DISLIKES
      ✦Insubordination - More then anything in this world, this goddess hates it when others attempt to belittle her person. Possessing a wretched superiority complex that refuses to bend, anyone that attempts to 'outdo' her, often, meets a rather sorry end.
      ✧Interruptions - It isn't really just that she loves being the center attention and that someone is attempting to steal it away that bothers her... its the fact that someone could be so unrefined as to stop her contribution to put in their own feedback.
      ✦Coffee - The mortal enemy of anyone who drinks tea, she finds the palette of coffee to be unrefined and too abrasive for her tastebuds.
      ✧Weaklings - Living in a world that only the strongest may rule, Teru, as cruel as it sounds, despises those who can be considered 'weak'. In her eyes, if you can't hold your own and have to rely on others to protect you, then, simply, you are a nuisance that needs to be annihilated.
      ✦Dandelions - The weed of the flower world, it simply infuriates Amaterasu to no end that these pitiful plants attempt to look beautiful.
      ✧The Sun - Despite being it's guardian, Amaterasu can not help but hold the slightest bit of contempt for the star. After all, it's existence brings about many painful memories of her husband..
      ✦The Banished Gods - Should this really be a surprise? Considering how much they stole from her younger years, many would believe that Amaterasu's hatred is just and understandable.

TALENTS
      ✦Ikebana - Possessing an eye for aesthetic beauty and elegance, Amaterasu has developed her natural skill of flower arrangements to be above 'professionals'. Able to, sometimes thoughtlessly, place the budding blooms in daring combinations, it is has become her special outlet for her creativity and refinement.
      ✧Tea Cermony - Possessing an exquisite palette for various kinds of tea, as well as being able to perform the exclusive tea ceremony, can be it considered a wonder why Amaterasu is so coveted to have as a VIP during tea parties? Not only that but this goddess can, somehow, make certain teas taste even better just by tweaking the smallest flaws that others execute while making brewing them.
      ✦Stylist - Blessed with a keen eye for artistic flair and color coordination, it can be noted that this revered woman is on the trendsetting end of the spectrum. Always wanting her outfits to give off a sensual and unique air, this woman will spend hours crafting the perfect combination for the day... Not to mention she takes pride in saying that her kimono were all hand-sewn. And should someone ask for her advice? She would gladly dole out her knowledge.
      ✧Shamisen - Able to play a 'dying' instrument, many of her loyal followers will flock around in order to hear even the shortest tidbit of the heavenly notes. Having taken Amaterasu years to master, she has gone through multiple trials (from soaking her finger tips in ice for hours on end to tying stones around her ankles) in order to get to the point of mastery she is at now.. and it shows.
      ✦Fan Dancing - When she would visit the human realm, Amaterasu would often pay the geishas in Kyoto a visit.. and it was all due to this particular ability. Having been captivated by the talented women and their skill of twirling about with fans, the goddess implored them to teach her so that she may possess the same grace. While rare for her to demonstrate this knowledge in front of others, she still finds comfort in going through the movements of this dance in the privacy of her own home.
      ✧Courting - Through either her own natural charm or through the use of, what she calls, 'every woman's secret weapon', Ama is able to win over the hearts of other and gain their trust and protection within a few minutes of their meeting. After all, a few purposefully placed smiles and baited gazes do go a long way.
Image

FLAWS
      ✦Deceptive - While exuding the air of being abnormally sweet and accepting, this woman, in all honesty, is worse than a snake. Quick to only reveal her facade to other, no one truly knows of this woman's twisted nature and her lack of morals. After all, the prettiest faces, often, hide the most demonic person.
      ✧Superiority Complex - Rasu, being of the original 5 gods, tends to hold herself in a higher light than others. Assuming with certainty that she was meant to be the ruler of all gods, it is only natural that there does not exist (in her mind) a single individual that can trump her beauty or strength. While she is very careful in letting this trait shine through her mask, this flaw has, ultimately, made her extremely self-centered on her motivations.
      ✦Wrathful - Possessing a wretched temper when she is displeased, it goes without saying that you never want to see Amaterasu in this state. While it does take an extreme amount of effort to make her angry, even this goddess's patience has a limit. When raging, she has even been known to, on more than one occasion, cause havoc on the human realm, no one being spared from her cruelty.
      ✧Grudge-Holder - Unfortunately, Amaterasu has never learned the whole "forgive and forget" motto…and it shows.
      ✦Sadistic - One who enjoys making others feel degraded, Amaterasu uses this personality flaw as a way to ride out her 'power trips'. Not afraid to deliver punishment upon servants who disobey her, she usually turns the entire ordeal into a mind game; be cruel and then utter sweet words of apology to make them crawl back. For this goddess, it is all very entertaining.
      ✧No Attachments - Quick to recognize when one of her puppets are becoming useless, Amaterasu is the type of person who abandons those who are 'weak'. Not wishing to have others be a burden on her conscious or throne, she is quick to stab others in the back and cast them out should they became just that; a fragile link in her chain.
Image

FEARS
      ✦Losing Power - After struggling and plotting this much to gain her current status, it shouldn't be a surprise that Ama fears the day that she is removed from her throne. Wouldn't anyone be?
      ✧Abandonment - While she would never dare voice this truth, a part of Amaterasu, secretly, fears the idea of being abandon and forgotten.
      ✦Mice - Despite being composed and collected, Teru, upon seeing a mouse, goes into a child-like state of fear. Screaming for someone to kill it and climbing atop the tables, it can be quite a shock for anyone seeing the goddess in this state. However, even with her attempts to banish such weakness, there still is something about their beady eyes and constant noises that strikes fear into her heart.


I seldomly stop to think things through and reason with myself.. I was a fool not to recognize that there would be a price to pay for that, someday.

POWER
    .:. Mind Control

    --- Stemming from her control over the Moon, this power has proved to be quite the lifesaver for Amaterasu when dealing stubborn subordinates. With this power, the Moon goddess can do the following ---

      >> Through Hypnosis, Ama can cause targets to follow orders by directly sending suggestions into the subconscious. However, this power is split into 2 subcategories. With Hypnotic Vision, only eye contact is required for these demands to be carried on with while Persuasion is verbally spoken.
      X
      >> Possessing a unique ability to implant thoughts/emotions/memories into the minds of targets in order to make them believe it's their own, and causing them to act normally upon recognizing said information, Rasu likes to rightfully call this Pushing.
      X
      >> Hating being lied to, rarely does Teru have to worry about it with her Truth Inducement power. With a verbal command and eye contact, her target will immediately spill whatever they know on the inquired topic.
      X
      >> Wishing to take care of her 'puppet's, Ama can manipulate/modify and control the thoughts/mindsets, and upper brain functions, allowing the ability to render others unconscious, suppress their memories, and negate the use of abilities/ increase/decrease mental capacity/modify minds to be agreeable/sway sensations to induce altered perception/bestow mental disorders or break down mental barriers. This power, as she calls it, is known as Complete Control
      X
      >> Known as Parasitic Senses, Teru can "hitch-hike" other beings' senses and experience what happens as if she were them. This power grants this goddess the ability to taste/feel/smell/see/hear from others senses. In order to do this, however, Amaterasu simply needs a single drop of her victims blood to be ingested by her being.
      X
      >> With a highly honed skill of Telepathy, Ama can read the thoughts of those near her, whisper her own thoughts into their conscious, as well as deliver intense pain unto her victim's mind.

    ---- Of course, like everything, there does exist limitations to her powers.. even if she is a Goddess ---

      >> While there doesn't seem to exist a range for those who are already under her control, new subordinates {ones Ama hasn't gained control over yet} must be within the same room in order for the whole process to work.
      X
      >> Unbeknownst to Amaterasu, she can only possess up to eight {8} people at a time. After 8, she must either let a servant go from her command or kill them before retaining a new one.
      X
      >> Amaterasu cannot erase already implanted information within her targets, but can suppress or nullify them by implanting new data.
      X
      >> When using her Parasitic Senses, Teru's own body will become immobile for a short while during its activation.
      X
      >> While her Parasitic Senses do not need to be of her own servants, she prefers them to be. Otherwise she has no ability to control the being she is using therefore having no control over what she will perceive.
      X
      >> Prolonged mental probing will give her intense headaches.
      X
      >> The more intense the thought Ama is viewing, the louder it is. As such, it can drown out her own concentration and thoughts.

    Image

    .:. Life-Force Manipulation .:.


      >> Frighteningly enough, Teru can control something what is known as Age Manipulation. Able to accelerate/reverse age of organisms and non-living objects through her touch, she has been known to cause objects to turn into dust.
      X
      >> Linked heavily with the idea of 'life' is also 'death'. As such, this goddess also possesses a Death Sense. Capable of sensing the coming of death, able to determine when someone is dead or dying or if others have died in a specific location, this has, at times, also extended to seeing the names and lifespans of those within the same room as Teru.
      X
      >> When she feels as though someone is disobeying her or getting too confident in themselves, Rasu likes to take them down a notch with her Death Inducement ability. Through connecting eyes, she can drain the life essence from someone to cause their prolonged death, a death-like coma, or a "death sense" (giving a person a glimpse of what death may or may not be like).
      X
      >> Of course, when she has had her fun and games, she can also Heal her victims to prime health in a matter of minutes. (More severe cases take a longer time to heal) via her own energy or whoever is in her surrounding area.
      X
      >> Highly proficient in perceiving the auras, normally invisible fields of energy that surround every living thing, this goddess loves her Aura Gaze. This sub power can be used to sense emotions, health, power levels, or the targets moral alignment.
      X
      >> Due to the sun being a power of life-force energy, Amaterasu can control the intensity of the star, as well as its alignment in the solar system through Sun Manipulation. This also applies to the moon.
      X
      >> Due to plants heavily relying on the sun and energy from the environment, this goddess has also found she has complete control over them. Using Plant Manipulation, she can cause their death or growth, 'see' through their existence, barricade herself as well as to ensnare her opponents.


    ---- Of course, like everything, there does exist limitations to her powers.. even if she is a Goddess ---

      >> Most of these sub powers run purely on energy. Sometimes, others will allow for her to remove some of theirs to aid in healing, but other times, she is forced to do with her own or steal it from others. As such, it is incredibly draining and stressful on her body and can not be used for long periods of time.
      X
      >> Her plant manipulation is useless in areas where they do not naturally grow {ei; she can not make trees grow inside a concrete house}.
      X
      >> Once again, for the plant manipulation, she can control certain types more easily than others.
      X
      >> Bound by duty and the universal energy restricting her, she can not move the sun's nor moon's position easily.
      X
      >> For immortals, her power of aging can not work due to their bodies, simply, not aging. However, since they can die, she can still see their deaths.
      X
      >> Amaterasu can only see deaths that are fifty {50} years into the future and two-hundred {200} years into the past.
      X
      >> Teru can only see up to ten {10} auras at a time.
      X
      >> Seeing too many auras deliver intense headaches and strain unto her body.


    WEAPON
        Everything about Amaterasu exudes elegance and a refinement that no normal person could ever hope to achieve in their lifetime.. As such, she has, carefully, chosen a weapon that would match her regality.

        Possessing twin tessan fighting fans, the weapon, in itself, looks to be very unassuming and innocent.. much like this goddess's outward facade. With stretched black silk and the embossed outline of a white sakura tree, only a gold snake engraved into the handle providing a splash of colour, the fans themselves look as though they should be hung on the wall for decorating purposes. Hidden from the untrained eye are small razor blades forged into the fan's curve, their lethality rimming the entire border and providing a clash with the gentle concept of femininity. Once turned over, it becomes even more apparent that these fans were not meant to be a mere decoration. Tucked away and disguised by the black silk exists 4 kunai daggers on each fan, making 8 in total, with each blade having the same iconic feminine design as on the fan.


    Some people are just cursed at birth with tragedy in their blood.

    FAMILY
        Chikyū no Hinokami (地球の火の神) || Husband || Deceased
        Ten no Hoshi ( 天の星) || Child || Deceased

    BIO
        It is quite odd, wouldn't you say, that a single person is forced to represent both the Moon and the Sun? And, even more so, that the Sun belongs to a Goddess and not a God...after all, a masculine symbol shouldn't be opposed unto a female, now should it? Very few may know this but, centuries ago when the Earth was still young, there did, in fact, exist a husband and a wife who were tasked with the duty of overseeing these two vital orbs in the sky.

        Before she was married, Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami was an enchanting young maiden who adored nothing more than her lovely Moon. Protecting it with her life and entire being, she could have often been found, during night, having a one-sided conversation with the planet..despite it never responding. As such, there existed no room in her heart for another,even though she had countless pursuing her wedding hand. Never one to give into the advances of her suitors, many of the young gods began to whisper she was a 'heartless monster' for her bluntness in her refusals.. though it never really bothered. However, as fate would have it, that maidenhood would soon end. The day Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami's destiny was sealed began like any other; with prayer rituals in her sacred temple followed by an evening reading of poetry to the Moon. However, all of her plans were halted as she stumbled upon a drunken intruder within her sacred halls, two Tanuki girls under each of his arms. As you can imagine, the Moon Goddess was beyond infuriated that such 'scum' was even allowed to cross into her threshold... and her temper only flared after learning he was the Sun God, Chikyū no Hinokami.

        In spite of his apologies, the devoted Moon guardian still held grudges against the man, especially so considering how loose he was with his devotions to the Sun. However, time can, thankfully, heal all wounds. Through Chikyū no Hinokami's relentless visits, each one bearing new gifts for Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami, the two began to mend their past offenses... before anyone could have predicted it, their relationship blossomed further than acquaintances.

        Becoming inseparable, both deities bestowed unto each other the usage of their 'real' names; Amaterasu and Raito. Everyday, Raito actively sought out his counterpart to spend his time with her, something that Teru, finally, learned to accept. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months and months, finally, turned into years, their relationship seemed to be unbreakable. On the 3rd year that marked the first meeting of the Sun and the Moon, Raito proposed to Amaterasu. With nervous joy, the Moon Goddess opened her heart to say yes.. before the month was even over, the two were wedded in bliss.

        As a match that couldn't have been anymore perfect, Raito and Teru only fell deeper into love as time wore on. In fact, many Gods and Goddess couldn't have believed that they were, at one point, single individuals. And then, 30 years following their wedding, the Sun God was inflicted with 'wandering eyes'. Growing distant from his wife, a darkness begun to settle within his heart as greed consumed his thoughts. On a nightly basis, he would complain to his soul mate about wishing for more power, about the craving growing deep inside his person. Naturally, Amaterasu felt frightened by these words.... though, she kept quiet. Wishing to somehow find a cure for this illness within her husband, the goddess turned to the one thing she relied on for so many years before meeting the Sun; the Moon. An answer came a mere week later in the form of an embryo growing inside Amaterasu; her first child. Overwhelmed by joy, Raito forgot entirely about his cravings and, in turn, focused on their soon-to-arrive daughter..but the solution was only temporary.

        Nine months later, Ten no Hoshi was born as a beautiful child that was soon to be adored by all. Rightfully bestowed with the name 'Ai', she became Amaterasu's treasure, her entire world. Though, despite the happiness their child brought, it couldn't have been ignored that Raito was beginning to make several enemies within the new gods.. apparently, talks about relinquishing their power to him to form one empire wasn't going over so well. In order to release his frustrations, the Sun God began to make frequent trips to the human world..namely the Red Light districts in Kyoto. Feeling ashamed in herself for failing as a wife, Teru turned a blind eye to Raito's new behavior.. and the fact he was ignoring their daughter's existence entirely.

        When Ai reached the marker of her first 14 years alive, the fragile relation between the Sun God and his sanity finally snapped. Making an attempt to steal the life of another god, one could only imagine the surprise of the Moon Goddess as she came home to find a sword poised at her husband's neck. Knowing all too well there was nothing she could do with 5 gods circling him, Amaterasu merely shielded her daughter's eyes as Raito was executed on their front porch. For days following her husband's murder, the Moon's tears wouldn't stop and she refused to eat. Thinking nothing worse could possibly follow, Teru's already shattered heart was ground to dust when the 5 gods invaded her home once more.

        Claiming that Ai, regrettably, couldn't continue to exist due to the corruption of her father's blood within her veins, Amaterasu watched helplessly as they dragged her only remaining family out the door. With malnutrition and a re-broken heart, she was forced, once again, to stand aside with tear-stained cheeks as everything she loved was stolen from her life.

        A week was spent in tears, the goddess refusing to even emerge from her domain. And then, finally, a thought occurred to her; revenge. With a new found fury, the Moon absorbed the Sun's soul, as well as his powers, to become the one guardian, her mind becoming corrupted and heart black,. Lying in wait for a hundred years, she finally made her move in exacting her revenge; turning the sun red, she exiled the gods that stole her life from her, vowing that, should they return one day, she would destroy them.

"Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning, just as forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future... But not everyone sees it that way.

Murder, deceit, pain, anger... These are all temporary cures until one must accept. One must heal.

Maybe it was fate when the young teens opened that book and fell into our world. The Depths. In blinding light, they had dissolved and become part of it. They had intertwined their ancient pasts with their modern lives, which is where we begin.

The land was coated in a fine, white powder of snow, the beauty of the landscape breathe taking as the teens stood on the fresh snow covered flowers. A meadow of pure eternity, some would say. The teens? Well, they had undergone a metamorphosis of their own.

At last, the 'heroes' have come!

And of the Gods being deceived? And the truest victim of all?

The Goddess of Ice and the God of War decided to embark on a stroll, the God of Misfortune, the God of Temptation, and the Goddess of the Sun and Moon staying behind within the village grounds, going about their day. "
