The Marassa Jumeaux

There was once a god by the name of Bondye, a great and sovereign god, and his first children were the Divine Twins. After many years of serving their father, the Twins desired to walk the earth on their own feet. Bondye allowed this and gave them earthly bodies to be born into. The first Twin was born and named Celestine, and the second was named Ariane.

The Twins grew up and retained their loa knowledge as they learned all they could about their godly father’s creation. Each Twin was called to devote their life to something on the earth; Ariane befriended animals and cared for the outside world, and Celestine learned to be a healer and mentor to Bondye’s many servants.

Upon reaching adulthood, the Twins had become both handsome and beloved in the eyes of all who knew them. Many wished to court them, for men, women, and others alike all fell in love with the charm, beauty, and mystery of the Twins. But they did not love in return. Not even a siren's song could inspire romance in their hearts. But the Twins were content in their love for each other, for the earth, and for their father. So they lived together and spread love to all whose paths crossed theirs.

Many years passed, some bringing happiness and joy, others bringing pain and sorrow. Their earthly family died and passed on to the afterlife. Their closest friends were married and began families of their own. Storms and quakes destroyed cities, battles raged, slavery, greed, and hatred tore people apart, yet still the Twins lived on. Life and youth seemed to cling to them, although their eyes aged and grew tired as each year came and went.

As the Twins reached their second century of life, they found themselves weary of immortality on a mortal earth. Bondye, seeing that they had learned much and were finally ready to move on, released them of their bodily restraints so they were free to once again travel between earth and heaven.

And so the Divine Twins lived and died and lived again, both human and spirit, mortal and immortal, forever bound to the earth they had served and loved.
