Ealor and the First Waves


Even as Thorax harvested darkness in the caves of the world, Corthain settled in the Fortress of Iul and Mordius built gardens of wondrous beauty, Ea-Lor settled into the deep waters. He came to the world in a watchful quiet and wandered far and wide. He came at last to a cliff that overlooked a deep ocean. He looked into the waters and was amazed. They stood still and lifeless, but they were deep and full of promise. None had as yet dared the water for the All Father himself labored in the dark upon the land and all those who followed him were near to him. But Ealor was ever his own, with little care or concern for the machinations of others, and with a booming laugh he leapt from the cliff into the water. Thus the first waves came to the world's oceans and they tore all across the deep waters creating a tumult the washed away islands and battered the coasts of the world.
