The story of Orran is a very, very ancient story.
Long ago, there was a small city-state called ‘Barbaros’, which translated into barbarian. Barbaros, placed in what’s now modern day south Macedonia, sat on the border of Greece. Relatively little is known about them, It's unknown if they were Macedonians or Greeks. The Barbarosians were highly disliked and looked down on by the Greeks because they refused to move northward, off of Greek soil.
One night in the cabin of the Barbarosian King’s daughter, who slept gracefully in her bed; Long, pitch black hair curling down to her shoulders; A light smile lied of her soft, olive colored skin.
As she slept, the king of the gods, Zeus came baring the sweetest, freshest, golden wine of Dionysus in hand. As well as the softest, words of poetry of Apollo that parted from his tongue. After a night of courtship and intimacy, Zeus would leave the slumbering woman, leaving the image of him to fill her dreams.
Fast forward nine months, to the birth of her hefty size baby boy. Out of all of the celebration for the birth of the boy, whom would be the future prince, the King’s mind was clouded with wonder of who the father of the child was. That evening, the king asked his daughter about it. In which she would tell that a man named ‘Zeus’, who was the all-powerful ruler of the sky, came to her cabin in the dead of night. He filled her belly with the most mouth-watering wine, and filled her mind with the most romantic thoughts before impregnating her with his son.
The king didn’t think much of it, until a guardsman, who knew a little about Greek culture, told him. The man told his majesty about the god who calls Greece his home. This information sent the king into a raged frenzy.
Unknown to the people of Barbaros, a certain Queen was having the same fit over this affair that produced a child; A mortal child to be exact, and with an outsider of Greece at that. Hera raged through Olympus with a roar so loud, it shook Greece. In a thunderous fury of anger mixed with a passionate lust for revenge, Hera left the home of the gods for this ‘Land of Barbarians’, as the Greeks would put it. She would go there, planning on killing them both. However, finding a rampaging king would strike an idea in her head.
Instead of simply killing them, she would disguise herself as a servant. Offered the king a tainted mug of water; which he would take, trying to calm his nerves, but instead it would drive him even more into madness. Standing at a staggering height, with a big husky frame, He charged down to her room. His big, round, brown eyes, pierced under his eyebrows; which was as dark and thick as the pitch black hair on is head. His hair was long, in a wide braid that reached the middle of his spin, flapped as he stormed up to her room. Every hairy muscle on his body pulsing, he grabs his sleeping daughter and her child.
In this crazed fury, he dragged her out of her bed, out of her home, and out of the kingdom while yelling “You deem them worthy enough to birth their son. Well, let’s see if they deem you worthy enough to take you in”. Along with her child, she was released in to the wild with only the harsh words of her father to remind her of home. Hera would disappear into the night in which she came, with her heart at ease. Instead of easily killing the woman, just so her and her child could live happily in Hades. No, she will now have to cold, merciless wilderness.
Unfortunately for Hera, the faun, god of the wild, Pan discovered them in north Greece. As he was hopping about, he saw her running from a bear. Out of fear for the worst, Pan hopped into a tree and started playing his flute to immediately calm the beast before it ran off. After telling Zeus this, he would give Pan the job of secretly watching over the two; Along with Demeter, the goddess of harvest, and Artemis, the goddess of the hunt.
