Chapter 1

In the beginning, there was Tempus, the god of time. There was also Chaos, the goddess of the cosmos. Together, they’ve created the universe. Tempus and Chaos had four children: Aquatar, the god of water; Iggy, the god of fire; Arial, the goddess of air; and Terra, the goddess of the land.

The deities resided on a planet called Oberon with other deities, humans, and reptilians. The gods and goddesses of Oberon followed three laws.

  • Don’t alter the laws of nature.
  • Don’t take away free will.
  • Don’t get involved in mortal affairs.

However, Aquatar impregnated a mortal woman, and they had a daughter whom they’ve named Glacier.

Because of Aquatar’s act of treason, he had to give up his powers, and live as a mortal.

Even though Glacier was half-mortal, she was forbidden to get involved with human affairs, and she had to live as a goddess.

Every one thousand years, one of Oberon’s deities gives up their powers and they put it on the line in a tournament for various reasons.

Chaos, the goddess of the cosmos, broke the third law by helping a little girl named Celeste.

Celeste lived with her parents. Even when Celeste was an adult, her parents would still tell her what to do. They had often resorted to various tactics such as gas lighting vague threats, and violence to get Celeste to do their bidding.

Celeste couldn’t turn to the authorities, because the people of Oberon had no concept of child abuse. The only thing that Celeste could do was to pray to the gods.

One evening, while Celeste prayed in her room, an old woman appeared to her.

“Hello, Celeste,” the old woman said.

“Who are you?” Celeste asked.

“I’m Chaos. I’m the goddess of the cosmos.”

“Are you here to punish my parents?”

“I would love to. But I have a better idea. I will send you to another part of Oberon. You will struggle at first, but your life will get better.”
