Creation Story Out of chaos and nothing came the Earth Mother and the Sky Father. Their first union brought forth their daughter the Water. Their second union birthed the twins, Fire and Ice. They lived as a family. Water was a creative sort, and made her ideas into fish. When she showed these creatures to her family, her mother was thrilled, and began to make her ideas into animals. Air shared his creations with his wife - making things that took wing, but also needed the ground to roost. Fire and Ice loved the creations, but it took them much to make their own. Earth appears a natural ‘earthy’ lady. Air appears as white haired statesman type, robed in flowing white robes. Water appears as a gill-ed woman with water for hair. Fire appears as a red headed man, and sometimes the hair is really fire - he has dark smokey eyes that smolder. Ice appears as a chisel featured man, blonde with white blue eyes.
