Originating from the Eagle Nebula, The Starlings and Starfallen, knew it as the Star Queen Nebula. Within it were several sets of Pillars and the Starlings/Starfallen journeyed from there on their own. Their section of Pillars was known as the Temple of Resurrection. They helped ferry newborn and reincarnated souls to where they needed to be. One fateful day, a wormhole opened, and sucked the remnants of their kingdom into the other end of the solar system. They were all flung out in different directions having made it to the quartz geode pods in time before the black hole took them. Now they have begun landing on different worlds bringing their knowledge of the stars with them.
Their powers involved, life, death and rebirth as well as known elements. they still gain powers from their individual stars or constellations as they are always in tune with it. The Phoenix was their main symbol, and the Starlings continued the Starling name.
The Starfall deities were heralded by a huge comet that fell. From that comet came the entities called the Pillars. Jorvus (pink), Laurial (blue) and Craiven (purple), they originally had no true forms, just nebulae. That was until the first beings to encounter them, the elves, allowed them to choose forms so that they could better communicate and relate to the beings of this world. Their bodies could either be a nebula, or shift into a more stellar elven body with their hair being a nebula. The female pillar is primarily blue in color, but also has hints of pink and purple from the other two. The male is pink with hints of blue and purple, and the non-binary pillar is purple with blue/pink hints. The people of the realm were in awe of its beauty and kindness, that they constructed a temple from the remains of the meteor. After its arrival, many came to worship it, but the entity only recognized the old souls of the elves, having been the closest to star stuff. Scribes were established, and the Pillar only spoke to them through mind speech while holding eye contact. This then, was when the Pillars of Creation book was written and the first Scribes became the first Starfallen. After thousands of years, other races have been known to be blessed individually but cannot reproduce a Starfallen unless they’re elven.
