Surprisingly, I was able to finish writing Lucifer & Lilith ahead of the latest schedule I had made for myself the last time I posted here a few weeks ago, so YAY to me! So, in order to boost interest in that story, I’m going to be releasing some background info on minor points brought up in that story for the next couple of updates. Hopefully, there won’t be weeks/months between those posts. I’m going to be taking the time between now and the new year to go through that story to ensure it’s ready to send to publishers so that I can hopefully publish it on a wider scale than what The Kanta Chronicles got.
Towards the end of L&L I introduced the events known as the Raping of the Fallen. And in the penultimate chapter, I mention a Mixling by the name of Cadel, daughter of Sif and angel of the Pit Disruptar. All of these characters are minor (Cadel and her father Disruptar are first introduced in this chapter), but even minor characters can be intriguing and have an interesting backstory. While Cadel, is an obvious homage to the character of the same name in The Kanta Chronicles (one of many connections the stories share), it’s her parents’ stories that I’d like to explore.
Sif is named after the Norse goddess. In all honesty, I don’t know much about her mythology outside the fact that she’s Thor’s wife; I think she might be a Valkyrie but I’m not sure. In regards to L&L, Sif is one of the fallen angels from Lucifer’s rebellion; she’s a warrior, but not part of the boarder garrisons. And all though she’s only been in the Pit a short time before the first Raping took place, in that time she had developed an attraction to an angel of the Pit named Nirnasha. Before the Raping, Sif had even hinted that she’d be open to a relationship with him. But, when during the first Raping, Nirnasha was raping Sif’s friend Selene, Sif was devastated.
Even worse was when she was attacked during the second Raping by an angel of the Pit she absolutely hated: Disruptar. For his part, Disruptar hates Sif too, and his raping of her was meant to show this. But despite the fact that they hate each other, Sif and Disruptar are actually quite similar. Both are warriors, unbound to any sect or garrison, both vie for their daughter’s allegiance over the other (using similar tactics of lies, manipulation and threats). But in all honesty, these similarities shouldn’t come as a surprise since Heolstor used bits of the remnants that God used when creating Sif to create Disruptar.
And if anyone wishes to get a more in-depth celestial/chthonic flow chart/family tree I’d be happy to give it to them.
