Part 2: Yunashura
Posted April 20, 2008on:
ok, this is part two of my PoR-RD storyline explanation. for those of you who dont remember, im pretty much senselessly repeating the important stuff that happens in the two games explaining the more confusing points of the two games. This article covers the back story of the goddess’ . note that, I remember her being called “yunashera”, but if its incorrect say so and ill fix it.
At the very begining of the world there was a girl named yunashera. she was a very unique girl, as she was the goddess…the very one who had created the planet. she was kind and gentle, but also very lonely. she was the only being in existence, so because of this she created a variety of creatures that she could live with. Some had wings, some had fur, and some even resembled herself.
after some time Yunashera realized that the creatures were changing. they were learning new skills, getting new ideas, even learning how to communicate with one another. this made the goddess sad, but also very happy. on one hand she realized she was not needed in order for the other beings to exist. they were perfectly capable of helping themselves. on the other hand however, the goddess was amazed that the beings were so unpredictable. they were ever changing into something new and exiting, and this pleased the girl very much.
in time the goddess made many close friends. she met the human swordswoman named Altina, and the heron prince Lehran. there was also the lion named Soan, and the dragon king named Dheginsea. all of them loved the goddess very much, and so they gave her a special name; the goddess of dawn.
but this peace would not last.
the powerful beings that could transform into animals and the intellegent beings that could craft tools began to argue. one side challenged the other saying theirs was superior. over time the conflict grew stronger and stronger. until it seemed they would end the dispute in a war. to prevent this, the girl gave the two sides special names. she named the powerful beings “laguz”, who were to be the children of power. and she named the intelligent beings “Beorc”, who were to be called the children of wisdom. this did not prevent the fighting, however. instead the two sides wagged war using their new names as their banners.
the goddess Yunashera saw all this and was deeply upset. even her slowest friends were fighting a war of senseless pride. as time went on Yunashera’s emotions grew more and more out of control. until one day, she simply lost control. the entire world was quickly covered in an immeasurable flood. it was so large, and so powerful, that almost every continent was destroyed. all but one…Tellius. and it was all because Yunashera lost control of her powers for one second.
Yunashera was devastated at this, and so she split herself into two separate beings. One was Ashera, the goddess of order, and Yune, the goddess of chaos. the two were to consult one another before they took any action regarding the people of tellius. in this, a perfect balance would be attained, and another great disaster would never occur again.
One day, however, Ashera proclaimed that Yune was to be destroyed. She said that she could not risk another disaster like the flood, and so she had to be perfect; without chaos. Yune no doubt tried to flee, But Ashera blessed her greatest fighters, including the lion king, Soan, and sent them to subdue Yune. in time she was defeated, and she was to face Ashera’s judgement.
Yune, now in tears, told her she was only trying to have fun, and that she never meant to hurt anyone. the “fun” Yune was talking about could be one of the following things. Either Yune wanted everyone to get along again so she caused the flood, or she saw the people fighting and thought that it would be fun. regardless, Altiena begged Ashera not to destroy Yune. Lehran told Ashera that, without her chaotic counterpart, she would be incomplete. Ashera was not moved, however, and went on to say that she would also destroy the two races and start over.
this is when Lehran made a proposal. he asked that Yune be sealed in his medallion, and that the two sisters would sleep for 1000 years. if in this time, war broke out once again, Yune would wake up and with her, Ashera. she would then follow through with her plans. However, if Yune remained asleep for 1000 years, the people would be spared. exceptions were made as well, if Lehran’s “galdrer of release” was ever played in front of the medallion, Ashera would not awaken. And conversely, if Lehran saw that there was no hope for humanity, he would awaken Ashera himself. Yune told Lehran she was afraid, but Lehran promised she wouldn’t be alone, that he would wrap her in peaceful galdrer. Ashera agreed, and so the two were sealed.
The dragon king Dheginsea then told a great lie. He covered the truth and told the people that a “dark god” was sealed in the medallion, and that if war broke out it would be let free. this dark god was the one responible for destroying most of the world. He knew this was not the truth, but he wanted to make sure the people would not ever go to war.
eventually Yune is awakened by the galdrer of release sung by Miciah, but Ashera is also awakened by Lehran. Ashera casts her judgement on the peopel of Tellius and turns them to stone, all but a few. Yune, using Miciahs body as a vessal, helps the remaining people defeat Ashera. it should be noted that, in the last battle, Asheras stats all max at 50, however they are at most, 30. this is two show her obvious inperfection. After Asheras defeat, Yune says she’ll try one more time to stay as the goddess of Tellius.
In the ending, under special conditions, Yuneshura is seen talking to Lehran. This leads me to believe that Ashera and Yune fused once again.
