The Tale of Three Daughters

Once, in its infancy, the world was drowning in darkness, and it wept for its unborn beauty. Life existed, but there was no light to see it by, no light for it to flourish by. For ages, the world let itself be consumed, and the life that should have blossomed withered and faded. But one soul saw this and could sit by no longer. Toying with the beautiful Djed written on the very essence of her being, she became the first of the burgeoning lights. She became light itself. For the first time, life exploded across the surface of Mizahar. Plants sprouted, and people saw their faces for the first time, saw their loved ones’ faces for the first time.

But a single soul was not enough. Her strength was limited, and her light alone couldn’t sustain the world. Whenever her concentration slipped, darkness flooded back into the world, threatening to send life back to what it had been, but she wasn’t alone. She was the mother of three daughters, and those daughters saw her struggle and came to her aid. They offered to carry the light with her, and relieved to not bear the burden alone, she gave to each daughter according to each one’s gifts.

To the first daughter, she gave the brightest of lights. This daughter had always been one who had clung to power, not as a crutch but because she saw it as the best tool to effect change. Because of the child’s power, her mother saw her as the one most fit to carry on her tradition of spreading light across the entire world. This daughter became the Sun, and she shed light on the world in ways her mother never could. But as with all who feast on power, she burned too brightly every day, and her light faded, allowing the darkness to come spilling back in.

To that end, the mother gave her second daughter a different light. It was a lesser light than the first, one that borrowed from the light of the Sun, but the second daughter cherished her light more than the first had cherished hers. She had always been one to look after her sisters, one made for self-sacrifice as long as it would improve the lives of others, and she became the Moon. When her sister the Sun was no longer strong enough to shine and darkness began to creep back into the world, the Moon gave what little light she had and held the night at bay. Hers was a fragile light, one that waxed and waned depending on how much light she had been able to borrow from her sister, and there were times, just as there were with her sister, when her light went out.

And so the third sister was given what little light their mother had left to spare. It was a meager light, not enough to see by but one that could be seen when the darkness arrived. This daughter’s gift was wonder though, and she used the light to search and find all the many wonderful things the world had to offer. Her sense of discovery gave her an air of bravery, for when difficulties and dangers arose, her sense of discovery overpowered any fear that would have stopped her. Everywhere she went, she left a little of the light, but her sense of wonder replenished the light she had, and it never went out. These traces of her adventures became the Stars, and though they disappeared from view under the brighter lights of her sisters, they never truly went out.

And so the first Lights came into being, and the world was never left without light again.

What the Alar Sisters Are Like

Sure, it’s just a story and one that ain’t true, as proven by the existence of Priskil, Syna, Leth, and Zintila. But that was the story the three Alar sisters grew up on. It was their story. And each of them became one of the lights.

As tends to be with big siblings, at least the best ones, the ones like Ambrosia’s sister Bethany, she took the way of the Moon. Being the most grown up and responsible of the three, she was always forced to look after both her little sisters, and though it was forced, it was a responsibility she took on happily. She has always been more concerned about her little sisters than about herself. With all the time spent thinking about others, she doesn’t notice when others take notice of her which many of the young men of Alvadas do. She looks prettier when she worries, and she worries perpetually.

Ambrosia’s little sister Tessa took the way of the Sun. She had her two older sisters to forge the way ahead for her, and once they took her as far as they could, she found ways to push herself even farther, to gain more from the situation than they had. She used them as stepping stones to get what she wanted most in the world. Power. She was addicted to the stuff, but her big sisters didn’t mind. They loved watching her excel, and she did it well, to an extent. But the Alar family had never held positions of authority, so what little power she gained was not much and definitely not enough to satisfy her. Still, she didn’t give up. Tessa used what power she had to gain what little more she could. Her beauty helped. She could sway quite a few men to do things for her that someone of average looks might not.

And that left Ambrosia with the Stars. Actually, she probably gave her sisters no choice in the matter. She had always been inquisitive, and her will to leave nothing undiscovered had gotten her into trouble more times than she could count. Bethany could count that high though. She’s always reminding Ambrosia what number she’s on, mostly because Bethany has been there with her for many of those times and has had to bail Ambrosia out of trouble on a good few occasions. Ambrosia’s curiosity has led her into trouble a lot, but even more often than it has done that, it has led her to discover something new.

If you ask Bethany, she’ll tell you Ambrosia’s curiosity is her best characteristic, despite all the times Bethany’s had to rescue her from it. Tessa disagrees. She says Ambrosia’s best trait is her smile. She says it’s because it’s genuine. It’s probably just that she likes it, because whenever Ambrosia flashes it, Tessa can use it to get something she wants. Ambrosia doesn’t mind though. A smile is a small price to pay for Tessa’s happiness, and she does enjoy smiling.

Recently, Tessa has gone missing. That's not anything too out of the ordinary. When she's really on the hunt for true power, she'll go missing for a week, maybe even two, but she always shows back up. This is the first time though that she's been gone this long. Beth worries after they haven't seen Tessa for a day, but even Ambrosia is starting to get worried now. It's been three weeks since either laid eyes on her.

Ambrosia’s Stuff

Housing
Ambrosia shares an apartment in Alvadas with her big sister Bethany. It’s cozy enough. They share a bed, but each has their own wardrobe and dresser and enough clothes to keep them well filled. They have a nice hearth to cook on and a washbasin and washboard to keep things, including themselves, clean. They also have a cupboard with enough for three place settings at their table. Each has a key that draws them to the apartment, so they can get home in the ever-changing streets of Alvadas.
Clothing
When they first got their apartment, Ambrosia and Bethany decided to share the cost on things, which meant whenever one bought something, the other got something of equal value. They each have three dresses, two pairs of boots, a pair of sandals, undergarments aplenty, five pairs of stockings, a belt, a coat, two shirts, two skirts, and two pairs of trousers.
Bethany’s Spiritism Supplies
Bethany took her dedication to others and self-sacrifice to a greater extent than Ambrosia could’ve imagined. Bethany decided she wanted to help the spirits that had passed. The scars and cuts that litter her palms from creating her soulmist just prove that she’s better than most at giving of herself to better other’s situations. Ambrosia helped her get started. Together, the two bought the supplies Bethany needed to get started. She has a ring of heavy beads that she imbued to make soulbeads. Her loop contains nine beads. Some people say that the number matters. Bethany insists that’s bullshit, and Ambrosia is more inclined to believe her big sister than anyone else. Bethany just says it affords her a few more shapes she can make with the beads. Her supplies also include a knife, some vials for holding the mist she makes, a bowl for mixing her dough, and the ingredients she needs to make her mist. The sisters have a bit of a sweet tooth, so Bethany’s dough is heavy on the sugar and a little more complex than most spiritists’. Hers contains flour, sugar, eggs, honey, and vanilla.
Miscellaneous
Back Pack, Waterskin, Flint & Steel
Heirloom: When the three sisters moved out on their own, they had a painting of themselves made and duplicated, each keeping a copy for themselves.
