In the beginning there was Lilith. Lonely and wanting children of her own she gave birth to a child. And that child’s name was Eliana. Eliana was a child born asleep. Lilith upset that her daughter would never wake hid her away. She knew that the consequences would be great if ever her sleeping child was to wake. After years of being distressed, she created four more children; Marissa, Serafina, Ashbel, and Gaia. For the first time in centuries she wasn’t alone. Lilith watched proudly as her children then created life of their own bringing light to the universe and light to her darkness. Marissa brought forth the sea; creating her children the Alivyans. Serafina brought forth the air; creating her children the Sirians. Ashbel brought for fire; creating her children the Fenians. And lastly was Gaia bringing earth and creating her children the Graneshians.
After the creation of the world, Lilith hid Eliana in a tomb in the center of the world. The build over the tomb was the Temple of Aionia. She gifted one family of each element with the power to speak to the gods. She told them that every year on the day of the mid-year the priestess of each element would travel to the Temple of Aionia and give thanks to the goddesses.
