2. Star Birth
There once was a Star who longed to achieve eternal life for himself and for his children. So he and his companion, a star named Sirius, fought against Gravity, the force who led all Stars into death. But Gravity was strong and persistent and in their epic battle the Star was destroyed. In a last ditch effort to protect his three daughters, the Star cast, with the rest of his strength, a giant Nebula in the shape of a monstrous bird. This Nebula swallowed up the Star’s children where they would live inside his belly, safe from harm.
In an act of revenge for attacking him, Gravity gathered his forces and slipped into the belly of the Nebula as it was forming, exposing the three daughters. Without the strength to destroy Gravity’s soldiers, Sirius and the three daughters, Hydrogen, Helium and Dust absorbed Gravity into themselves, giving them Gravity’s powers of compression.
Within the Nebula, the daughters learned that by sacrificing equal parts of themselves and compressing them into a ball of energy, they had the ability to create Stars. So they decided to create new warriors in the likeness of their father, to go out and fight Gravity’s forces. Each Star that they created, however, was imperfect, as they were unable to replicate their father. So they persist, filling the sky with hundreds upon thousands of unique stars.
