Metaphysical Origins

As discovered by Matsuo Shin, during the Silver Millennium, a certain group of Earthlings (known collectively as Millianians) took to worshiping the royal families and specifically the Princesses of the other worlds as goddesses. After the fall, this group's specific beliefs began to spread, though under other names and their power of worship was so strong that it gave birth to these beings as separate deities in their own right, though retroactivity as well existing under their own origins. Qeinoss was one such being, who was born from the memory of the Princess of Quinox, who's worship later moved to the fertile crescent becoming the god Enlil before worshipers moved into the Grecian archipelago. Her worship was found within what is now known as Thessaly and while there are theories that she might have been introduced during the Minoan period, it was now known that she was a worshiped, if somewhat minor, goddess during the Mycenaean period. Her worship however began to decline during the latter parts of that point in history before completely snuffing out during the dark ages and being almost completely forgotten.

Mythological Origins

The following is based off two incomplete Hymns to Qeinoss as well as other conjunctions gathered from numerous sources.

During a time when Hyperion went on a great journey across the heavens, Thelia, his consort, encountered Phainon, the wandering star. The two fell in love and gave into one another but Phainon could not stay and fled once more into the heavenly sphere.

Later, Thelia gave birth to the goddess Qeinoss and though she was not of his blood, Hyperion claimed the girl as his own daughter and she was much beloved by him and his other children. She [REST IS MISSING. MAY BE FILLED IN LATER ONCE INFORMATION IS RESTORED].

Re-Awakening

In 2019, a group of men sought out what had been rumored to be valuable artifacts hidden in the wilderness of Thessaly, Greece. Murdering an old man who's family had lived on the land for generations, the three managed to dig out the ruins of a small temple over a period of several days. One of the men, reading the name of Qeinoss out loud on a piece of stone, inadvertently awoke the long sleeping goddess. However, due to her worship having been long gone (her line of priestesses having died out centuries ago) and with all stories of her forgotten, the deity returned as a half formed feral creature, which soon made it's way to Larissa.

She was soon met however by forces belonging to The Hotel, including Matsumi Kaze. During the attempted battle, Matsumi and Qeinoss both weakened, as the metaphysical instability began to affect both of them. In a desperate attempt to save his sister's life, Matsuo Shin along with a team of heroes from The Hotel traveled through time, attempting to discover the source of all their troubles. Time soon began to run out as the feral Qeinoss revived and made her way to Tokyo. With the help of the knowledge they had gained, along with re-connecting with her metaphysical source, Qeinoss stabilized, once more becoming the goddess she had been known to be before. With Kore's help, she soon got in contact with the remaining gods and goddesses, who had formed the New Greek Paradigm. Thanking the Hotel members for their help, Qeinoss left to try and re-connect with everything she had lost.

The Goddess is Back

Qeinoss now lives in Olympus, still finding her way in the new home of the gods and goddesses. She has since abandoned her former Mycenaean trappings, replacing it with a more Greek, modern identity for herself. As well, she has been rather stunned to learn that her worship has begun to blossom once more, thanks in part to the paper that Matsuo wrote as well as internet culture picking up on her obscurity.

The Forgotten Man

During one ideal moment on Olympus, Qeinoss heard a strange sound through the air. Descending to Earth, Qeinoss followed the sound, until she came to a deep cavern underneath the Earth. There, much to her surprise, she found a statue depicting a youth in the process of a deep sleep. Overcome by curiosity, Qeinoss carefully stroked the stone hair of the statue, only for it to suddenly come alive. Surprised at first, Qeinoss took pity on the confused man and decided to help him out. Over the next few days, Qeinoss learned that the young man was Zagerius, the son of Hades and Persephone and like her, had been long forgotten by the world at large. Qeinoss would in turn sneak in food from Olympus and spend time with him, gradually falling in love with the god. However, she quickly realized that her actions might be frowned upon by Athena, as she had somehow awoken him from his sleep without her permission. Desperate to help him, Qeinoss decided to try and smuggle him into The Hotel for protection, thinking that for some reason it might be able to shelter him from Athena's prying eyes. However, she soon learned that Athena had long figured out what had happened and Qeinoss was summoned back to Olympus. Judged by the goddess, Qeinoss was punished with house arrest for several months, separated from the one she loved in the process.

Random Information

  • Qeinoss is not to be mistaken for Aether, the personification of heavenly air, though Aether may have been a epithet of hers at one point. In modern worship, she is considered a seperete being.
  • The one other epithet known is mentioned in the Hymn: Qeinoss Fíltatos
  • While a separate being in her own right, Qeinoss still has some fondness for Matsumi Kaze and has put her unofficially under her protection.
  • Her most commonly accepted sacrifice is birds, butterflies and moths though she will accept a mere feather as perfectly good sacrifice.
  • As one of the Mycenaean deites, she is most likely one of the oldest ones to be worshipped at some point in Greece, though this does not affect her status or powers in any way.
  • There are very few artworks depicting Qeinoss due to her obscurity. Matsuo Shin has so far only recovered a broken statute and some shattered wall art which showcases her in any means. He has theorized that she may have been more widely worshipped at one time but that her sky goddess status (sky deities were not popular in Mycenaean times) as well as other factors may have resulted in her worship shrinking her down to a more local deity towards the latter part of the time period.
  • Qeinoss' personal signet is a pair of wings, which was also found in the remains of her temple.
  • Swallows and especially Swifts are considered holy to Qeinoss.
  • Qeinoss is mostly a nature goddess, with much of her worship occurring in the countryside.
  • Qeinoss is sometimes identified as being a "creation deity" due to her position as a Goddess of the Living Breath.

Trivia

  • Qeinoss' relationship with Matsumi/Sailor Quinox is odd and complicated. While the two have a link and share a "divine" connection, Matsumi is not Qeinoss' champion (Matsumi's connection is through The Six) and thus her power is not directly related to her well being. A better explanation is that Qeinoss is a "shadow" of Matsumi's god like powers made flesh.
  • Qeinoss is paradoxly both a very old deity and a very new deity. She apperently existed before many of the well known olympians were worshipped and thus is part of the second generation of Titans/gods. However, due to long sleep and much of the lost information her, she barely known by scholars and the world at large, placing her as one of the newest deities to be found.
