Myth of the Sun and Moon
Before the Great Cataclysm, there were differing stories about how the sun and moon moved across the sky every day. One such tale was told by the followers of Phoenicia, the phoenix goddess of the sun. The other was told by the followers of Mohiga, the werewolf goddess of the moon. These stories carried on through the ages as mythology to those who no longer believe in the old gods.
From the side of the followers of Phoenicia
The sun goddess rises from her slumber every morning and flies across the daytime skies. No one would defy her daily rite except for the occasional resistance from the storm goddess. The cloud god would aid her across the sky everyday and protect her from sight when she deemed fit. Flying across the sky and providing light to the world is a tiresome task, however, even for someone as mighty as the sun goddess. Every evening, she would disappear over the horizon and sleep once again. The moon goddess would come out for her nightly hunt at this time and stalk her way across the night sky. The moon goddess would cowardly run and hide behind the horizon, nevertheless, as morning came. The sun goddess would always rise again and chase off the moon goddess to begin the day anew. Sometimes the moon goddess would not even show up for her nightly hunt; on the following day, the sun goddess -- not needing to waste energy chasing off the cowardly moon goddess -- is able to bless her followers with great power. Sometimes the moon goddess would show herself in full and shower her followers with power, but this ritual is of no concern to the sun goddess. She is merely run out of the sky every morning all the same...
From the side of the followers of Mohiga
It is said that every time the sky turns red, there is a great battle between the moon goddess and the sun goddess. Every evening the moon goddess is triumphant and slays the sun goddess. However a god cannot truly kill another god. Being a phoenix, the ashes of the sun goddess reform into an egg. The egg of the sun goddess is the greatest trophy one can attain from their hunt. The moon goddess hoists this trophy after her kill and parades it through the night sky. It is a tremendous boon to her followers as she leads them on in the nightly hunt. When the morning comes, the egg hatches and the moon and sun goddess fight anew. Of course, the nightly hunt is tiring even for a goddess, so she disappears behind the horizon to plan her next hunt and allows the sun goddess her daily ritual. It is a futile ritual, however, as the moon goddess returns fully rested each evening and slays the sun goddess anew. The more proudly the moon goddess carries the egg of the sun goddess, the more powerful she becomes. On days when the egg is fully alight in the night sky, the followers of the moon goddess are granted their greatest blessing. Regardless, when the egg appears at its most ashen, the sun goddess rises stronger than ever on the follow morning and her followers are blessed instead.
The conflicting stories tell much of the same events. First, they both explain that the two goddesses are responsible for carrying their heavenly body throughout the sky every day. Secondly, they both tell of how the followers of Phoenicia are exceptionally blessed the day after a new moon occurs. Finally, the two tales describe how the followers of Mohiga gain a particular boon during the nights of a full moon.
