Once upon a time, the world was enslaved. The inhabitants suffered beneath the yoke of the Goddess Harmonia, never knowing any better life and never allowed to step out of line - not that the thought would ever occur to them. They had no wills of their own, and simply lived each passing year the same as the last, with no sense of purpose. Harmonia, Goddess of Control, saw to that. Typhonia, her sister, was the Goddess of Power and Courage, and wished to start a revolution. One that would free the people from their miserable lives and let them determine their own destiny.
She could not stand up to her sister alone, however. It would be a stalemate. She needed allies. Typhonia turned to the third sister, Synesthesia, Goddess of Joy and Madness, and explained why she needed help that only a creative trickster could provide. And so the two goddesses plotted together against Harmonia. Synesthesia would introduce magic to the world and Typhonia would use it to create monsters. Living weapons that would not only inspire fear, but give the people something to fight back against, and a reward for their courage in the form of more magical power. The world would have heroes at last, and that would be enough to break the spell of silence and stasis. Synesthesia also insisted on changing the people’s shapes, and Typhonia agreed with this idea - their new vision of the world’s denizens should make them stronger and more suited to dealing with the dangers they would have to face. It was obvious to Typhonia that giving the people so much power would turn them against one another as well as they grew more and more ambitious, but this was part of her plan. Continuous battle could only make the people ever stronger.
Alliances can shift, however, and any pair of goddesses could overpower the third if they had a reason to. Someday, things might go differently, and the world may change again.
