By Roxymarlatinfire

Romance / Drama

Prologue of the 12 Astros

In ancient time, around the middle of the 2nd millennium B.C; The Babylonians were devoted to celestial omens that represent their Gods. They spread this knowledge to others such as India, Middle East and Greece. The Greeks became fascinated with such information that these great minds began to form celestial omens by using the stars. The brightness of these stars had a celestial glow that reminded them of the Gods and Goddesses that had created humanity and decided their destinies.

They created constellations that represent each of them by using the planets as roots of their gift to the Gods and Goddesses, well the most common known since they had far too many. These constellations were Capricorn (The Goddess Demeter), Aquarius (The God Dionysius), Pisces (The God Poseidon), Aries (The God Ares), Taurus (The God Hephaestus), Gemini (By the twins, The God Apollo and The Goddess Artemis), Cancer (The Goddess Hestia), Leo (The Goddess Athena), Virgo (The God Hermes), Libra (The Goddess Aphrodite), Scorpio (The God Hades) and Sagittarius (The God Zeus/ The Goddess Hera). 12 Astros to represent their main Gods and Goddesses. These Gods were greatly honored by the offering of the humans that they blessed the Greeks with fortune, health and victory over battles.

However, years began to pass and the future generations of Greece had forgotten the existence of the Gods and Goddesses, who their ancestors have worshipped for centuries. Yes, the new generation tried to preserve the broken and old temples. While also keeping their presence vivid by writing myths of the Gods and Goddesses with ancient tales of birth, gifts, punishments, romance, betrayal, marriage, children and heroes that serve the Gods until their last breath. But it wasn't enough to keep them present in their culture.

The Gods and Goddesses considered necessary to think of a new way to make the world they had created to remember them always. Zeus thought of an idea; to live and obtain the body of a human, a creature that he had always loved in many ways to count, but only have one month of their corresponded Astros to unleash their celestial being. But instead of him been involved in the Astros, he will be the head of the Gods and Goddesses that will become one with their horoscope sign; leaving his horoscope sign for his wife and queen, Hera. And with that idea in mind; it was swiftly fulfilled.

In the beginning, the idea was a success. The Gods and Goddess were worship by followers and treated as Kings and Queens. However, new religions were forming around them. It was causing for their followers to be killed for worshipping false gods. The Clarks family, were under persecution. They were force to live underground or out of Greece in feared of been killed. The Clark family became nomad, or gypsies, that traveled around Europe. Until in modern times, they decided that it was best for them to move to countries that were unknown to them. That's how currently, the Clark family began to live in Japan.
