Excerpt from the play, “Dawn of the Black Celestial,” written by Reginald the Greater
“…and from the Abyss she arose. To take on the twisted machinations of her brother. An eternity in the blink of an eye, and as the last light of creation dimmed; there was only one final course of action. To give their light, and to entrust their children to the planet that they so loved and protected.”
The Celestial War is often referenced in mythology and legend, and is generally loosely accepted as a suitable explanation for the creation and cosmology of Aethus. (At least, among commoners). There are often different versions of the story, but they almost always revolve around a collection of ‘good’ Celestials vs ‘evil’ Celestials; locked in an eternal struggle, which eventually gave birth to Aethus and the various races that inhabit it. Usually this is depicted as the Celestial’s final act of benevolence—saving their creations from the eternal war. However much of this is true, or not, remains to be determined.
