Aiu by gingertom84 Aiu by gingertom84
I am the Accursed. I love my Brother like he was a lover. Outraged by my feelings, my Mother, the Mother of Light, clawed my face away. I am the Faceless. I am then cursed never to see the face of the one I adore. O woe, woe, woe! Once I was the most beautiful. Now I am a poor reflection of my former self. I am one who robbed a man's body and ruled as a tyrant for a thousand years. For when I blame the Gods for my conditions, I blame the mortals for robbing my seeing the one I desire. I am the Black Dragon. I am the Prophet-King. I am the Necromancer. I am the Lord of Beasts. I am the Witch-King. I am the Brother-sister of the Sun and the Moon, of the Stars, the Comets, the Auroras and all celestial lights. I am the Shadows. I am Aiu.

Aiu is an entity with female, male and no-sex all in one. You would understand the concept of this figure better if you take it as a religious and metaphorical idea instead of taking him as a person. His brother Aroth the Sun represents everything that is organized, separated, classified, ordered, hierarchical and structured, while Aiu chaos, disturbance, turbulence, mixture and confusion. The story of Aiu being in love with his brother ultimately represents the measure of Aiu's confundity and perversion of universal order. This story conveys the moral and philosophical struggle of Rothmenian belief system.
