Mythos:

Of Creation and the Greater Spirits by Enasilaor, the Keeper of History for the Aleamitore House of First Elves, excerpt…

Out of the void, a thought took shape and it was the life. So did Teysura come to be. She took the Ether and made the world, creating every stone, every plant, every bird and every beast. She was the Great Mother to all the world.

Teysura came after Amus and the sisters bonded in the Ether as they created form and substance to their thoughts. Teysura delighted in the universe that Amus had made and there she took the Ether and formed it in her hands. The energy grew bright as it took shape in the Material Plane and became our world. In the depths of the world, she set iron and steel and gems of all sizes and shapes. She carved the mountains and leveled the plains. Upon the world she gave life to the plants, birds and beasts.

She is the Sacred Mother and strives to protect the world and those that live upon it. She does not take vengeance upon those that seek to destroy her creations as she knows that time will heal all wounds and the world will not die…

…In time, Teysura took comfort in thought. She knew the world like no other spirit and sought to give knowledge to the others that had come from the void into the ether. Seven thoughts she had, and as each thought took shape in the Ether, they became as she was. They were her children and to each she gave a name; Miravynn, Raloryss, Jhaeros, Mylesar, Faelynn, Elanil and Valthyra.
