Moon Myths of Assimilated Peoples of the Empire

By Science Leader Fijoji of Affamarg, Emoses

Chapter 3

The Yasiluu were a sleepy agricultural people by Empire standards, but their myths hint that this may not always have been the case. One of their significant cultural heroes is the hunter, Kasiikar, who roamed the wild hills and forests with his dogs hunting game and adventure. This tale is set at the end of those wild times.

According to the Yasiluu, the ancient times were a time of dark, moonless nights and strange monsters. There were golden lions, black bears and dragons of many colors; horses to ride and salamanders to keep your hearth-fire going; the skies were filled with firebirds and the dreaded man-eating black magpies. Kasiikar was said to have hunted all of those wild, dangerous creatures.

Typically, Yasiluu storytellers performed during the evening hours, either with a family audience, over warm spiced apple juice and cookies or in an Inn

Author's Notes

It seems natural that Yasiluu mythology would feature dogs. And it was only fair, having featured Skycat as a cultural hero, to give the dogs a place in Torn World mythology!
