When the cosmos began, all was darkness but for a few scarce points of light.

Call them the embryos of matter or the dreams of eternal beings just starting to take shape. Call them what you will, for they were too beautiful to be described by a few paltry words.

For millions of years, these cosmic wonders spun in slow rotations, ignorant to each other and to the vast reaches of empty space all around them. Each contained a vital gift that the universe desperately needed, yet none was willing to give so much as a drop of their essence. Why should they? To the Orbs, there was only the Here and the Now. Eternity has no past and does not look to the future.

It would take something wondrous to shock these dormant forces into motion.

That spark came in the form of a shooting star.

This spark darted from one massive orb to the next, disturbing their slumber by robbing them of a small amount of their gifts. It never took enough to harm, just as dipping your fingers in the ocean could never drain it dry.

Drops of Water and Soil and Air and Light spun rapidly at this star's core, filling every open space until a hard shell had formed around the fiery center. When the first few green buds burst above the ground's surface, all but a droplet of light abandoned the infant planet to shape its history as it would. That light was intent on creating many worlds of many shapes and kinds, but it left a small portion of itself to serve as guardian and guide to whatever life forms came to thrive there.

This world was called Primo, the First World.

The plants of Primo continued to grow wild and unchecked until the waters were reduced to half their mass and the air was choked with the noxious perfume of weeds. The goddess of Primo wept to see her surface becoming so overgrown that new seeds fell useless to the ground and rotted away. Desperate to relieve her suffering, she recalled hazy memories of her earliest moments and called down the fires from the sky.

The early animals of Primo were gruesome to look at. The insects needed to harvest nectar and spread pollen were massive, uneven lumps of silver flesh that sagged near to the ground when they flew. The birds were featherless and had cries that grated on the ears. The grazers looked like mossy boulders with tiny, squinting eyes that often missed the approach of the tawny predator cats with jagged teeth and stumpy tails.

By this time, many more worlds had taken form. Other beings of light looked on the fruits of her labor and laughed.

The goddess wept silver tears which grew and took a new shape.

This was the first constellations, an animal of light and vibrancy that would come to be viewed in the night skies of every world on which life had thrived. He was the special child of the goddess, the one creature that overwhelmed even her love of her lush plants.

He had all the unlimited energy and wicked mischief of that first star that had begun to spin the wheels of life. His name was Orbit.

In childhood, he was a constructive force. When he tossed his curved horns, toxins of the darkest reaches were dispersed, allowing ailing worlds to breathe anew and have a second chance at life. When he stamped his hoof, chunks of dark matter were shaken loose to provide new places where stars might spring into being. He frolicked around suns and moons and sent asteroids spinning on wild revolutions, always circling back to Primo to brag to his mother of his exploits. A touch on the nose of a native creature would turn that mossy or mottled beast into something more exotic. Stripes and spots and bony ridges adorned the brows of those young animals he favored.

Time could only improve the sheen of his coat and the gleam in his eyes. The glorious youth of Primo was in his prime and eager to take his place in the galaxy. Leaving his mother was painful but Orbit could sense that his talents were needed out there in the farther reaches of space where he had not yet dared to trod.

The variety of life he found was indescribable. He felt a longing stirring in him to cease being the only one of his kind. His mother had told him stories of turning matter into light and light into matter. He had enjoyed them as any child snuggles onto a parent's lap to hear about the adventures of wizards and dragons. He had never really believed such things could be done.

His first attempt to create another star creature nearly proved his undoing.

The star lion was a fierce creature that wanted only two things. All the room in the universe to roam in and a good, hearty meal.

Orbit used the light of the nearest sun to fool the newly formed lion, blinding him momentarily and narrowly escaping the swipe of his claws. The baffled lion was forced to follow Orbit by scent. He paused when he felt the irresistible pull of a new world beneath his paws. Once he was rooted in a planetary sky, he could no longer roam at will, roar in frustration as he may. Unlike Orbit, he had none of the goddess running through his veins to allow him to come and go as he pleased.

This was Orbit's first lesson in being careful to control his thoughts when he created another like himself. Powerful thoughts lead to creatures of power. Serene thoughts lead to rabbits and mice.

Over the millenia, he would come to create constellations for every world, charging them with looking out for the health of their own planets and teaching them to deflect the smaller meteors and asteroids that threatened the safety of their inhabitants. Orbit saw himself as the wider protector of the galaxy, making it his mission to tackle those planet-killers that no amount of air, water or wind could hope to displace. He set these on new orbits so they would go directly to the heart of a black hole or meet their end under the awesome power of the sun.

No matter where he roamed, though, he would return every year on the longest of Primo's days to kiss his mother's cheek and plant another star blossom on the spot where her tears had given him life.
