Within the breathtaking expanse of the Great Dividing Range, in the Great Empire, we discovered a trio of majestic peaks known as the Three Sisters: Peak Atropos, Lachesis, and Klotho. While we are still researching the origins of their names, we have found evidence relating them to Greek mythology. These natural monuments hold a significant place in Arcadian history. The Three Sisters symbolize the historical divide between the Great Empire and El Territorio.
The Galdarians, an Arcadian race residing on one side of the peaks, viewed these mountains with a mixture of reverence and mourning. They saw the Three Sisters as a memorial to a legendary figure, the Goddess Annuler, who was defeated by the Chief God, Kempe, and her body was used to create the landscapes and waters of Arcadia. In her honor, the Galdarians constructed temples at the base of each peak, turning these sites into areas of spiritual significance. These structures and the rituals performed there became integral to the cultural identity of the Galdarians, embodying their respect for tradition and the natural world.
Conversely, for the Great Empire, the peaks represented military strength and strategic advantage. The imposing heights and rugged terrain were seen as natural defense structures. The Great Empire’s leaders built fortresses on these mountains as a clear display of their desire for dominance and control over the region. This contrast in perception and motive illustrates the divergent values and priorities of the two civilizations.
The Three Sisters serve as a reminder of the region’s complex history. These natural formations have become symbols of the power struggles and cultural differences that shaped the region. Their existence enables us to reflect on how natural landscapes can become intertwined with history, often taking on meanings and significance far beyond their physical presence or utility.
Today, the Three Sisters represent part of the rich historical tapestry of Arcadia. Exploring these peaks offers a unique opportunity to delve into the past and gain insights into how natural wonders can influence and reflect cultural narratives.
