Name: SELENE (pronounced as See-Lee-Knee according to Bion) Faction:
23 Appearance: Personality:
Selene is a person who has great control of her presence; so great that she almost has none. This made her very adept in hunting and reconnaissance. She is very prideful and has a great sense of justice. She is a lover of nature, of both men and women.
She is uncorrupted by power and if were asked which side she was really on, she would be neutral. In truth, she hated the Athenian King and all those who corrupt their power. All she wants is for the gods to return and bring back balance to the world.
Powers & Abilities: Weapon(s) of Choice:
Forlorn from the loss of her beloved best friend, the Virgin Goddess for a while, did not go on her usual hunts. For a time the forests were quiet. Artemis had realized that the love she had for Orion was more than that of a friend and the love she had for her brother, Apollo, stopped her from taking vengeance.
For a time the forests were quiet in the absence of the goddess. It was until that Artemis realized that being cooped up never did anything good. It was then she met the fair maiden Diana, beautiful young maiden scouring the forest and searching for someone. At first, the maiden was awestruck by the beauty of the goddess, but after a few moments she gathered her courage and revealed that she was looking for Orion.
The poor young maiden did not know what has befallen the magnificent hunter. To make things worse, Diana was pregnant with Orion’s child and was soon to give birth. A few months before Artemis and Orion met, Diana had shared a few nights with the fallen hero, resulting into the present problem, made worse by the fact that the maiden had nowhere and no one to return to.
The goddess took pity on the woman and took her in among her priestesses. Apollo was made aware of this and had initially wanted to be rid of the pregnant girl. To him, she would just be a reminder of that sow that was Orion. But even he was awestruck by Diana’s innocent beauty and took pity on her.
The twin gods were present during Diana’s childbirth during a full moon. She bore a wonderful baby girl. Apollo foresaw that the child would grow to be even more beautiful than her mother and be the envy of the nymphs and the dryads of the forest. They named the child Selene after the bright moon that lit up the sky that night. Sadly, Diana did not survive the ordeal of the childbirth and had passed away, leaving Selene in the care of the priestesses and the twin gods.
Selene grew under the protection of the two gods. She was favored by them. She was taught the ways of the hunt by Artemis and by the age of ten Selene hunted her first boar without difficulty. In the ways of melee, Apollo made sure she could be on par with any military rank soldier. By the age of 16, Selene was already an adept hunter that made the Virgin Goddess proud.
On her 18 birthday, while on a hunt, Selene met an accident while trying to save a cypress from a mountain lion. She fell into a trap set up by another hunter and would have died if she was not saved by Artemis. The accident also caused her to lose her vision. It was devastating for the twin gods to see their most favored as she was. They healed Selene and endowed her with gifts as they did so. (will be described in abilities)
Selene was in great debt to the sibling gods and had loved them like they were her parents; her best friends; her lovers. Everything was back to how it was until she came home one night and found that the two gods were nowhere to be felt. Even the priestesses could not get their prayers sent no matter how many times or how they tried. Selene searched the forests for a while and found no trace of them. The priestesses feared the worse and told her to go to Athens to hear word of any strange incident.
The people of Athens confirmed her fears. The gods of Olympus have disappeared and nobody knew how or why or if they would ever return. After a few days of stay in the city, a soldier approached her and asked if she would join the army. Thinking this was an opportunity to investigate the phenomenon, Selene did not hesitate and enlisted. Her talent caught the eyes of the King and was asked to be a ranger and scout.
The Athenians together with Selene, moved to Olympus and seized it as their new home. After a year, Selene developed godly abilities like many of the other Athenians. She still seeks answers as to where the gods have gone, but at present, she fears all will fall under chaos in a bloody war.
