General Overview: As a titan and creature of the night, she doesn’t need sleep. Day is for work, night is for play. She has a passion for the waters of earth and all life that lives within it. As a mortal pun, she chose to work with celebrities, or “stars”. With her knack for being a keen observer and her endearment for mortals, she wanted something that kept her around them. She loves the energy the mortals give her and the way they can enjoy a good time. Their resilience astounds her, but their nonchalant treatment of the earth angers her deeply and she sometimes loses her restraint when she finds one intentionally doing harm to the environment or the oceans. Mortals are also her biggest downfall, or largest weakness, as she finds herself attached, which makes her emotional. As a carefully calculated woman, letting her emotions get the best of her restraint.

= Historical Synopsis =
Selene – Greek: “Moon”; Latin – Luna. In Greek and Roman religion, the personification of the moon as a goddess. She was worshiped at the new and full moons. According to Hesiod’s Theogony, her parents were the Titans Hyperion and Theia; her brother was Helios, the sun god (sometimes called her father); her sister was Eos (Dawn). In the Homeric Hymn to Selene, she bears the beautiful Pandeic to Zeus, while Alcman says they are the parents of Herse, the dew. She is often linked with Endymion, whom she loved and whom Zeus cast into eternal sleep in a cave on Mount Latmus; there, Selene visited him and became the mother of fifty daughters. In another story, she was loved by Pan. By the 5th century BC, Selene was sometimes identified with Artemis, or Phoebe, “the bright one”. She was usually represented as a woman with the moon (often in crescent form) on her head and driving a two-horse chariot. As Luna, she had temples at Rome on the Aventine and Palatine hills.

= Introduction =
Ah, dear, beautiful mortals: I am the Titan Selene. I feel the energy of the night and the joy in you mortals. It feeds me and makes me glow. As much as I love spending time with you, it infuriates me when you are arrogant and wasteful creatures.
I enjoy spending time with you but tend to lose my temper. And I guarantee, you will not like me when I am angry. But do not fret, sweet mortals, for it is known that my love for you is great. I even took one of you to be my lover, Endymion…may he dream forever. But let us not dwell on history, for the night is young, somewhere.
You ask of my family? I have two siblings: Eos, the goddess of dawn, and Helios, the god of the sun, both of whom I love, even if they do try and steal my thunder. My parents, Theia and Hyperion -Titan and Titaness alike – are born from Gaia and Uranus, siblings. Incestuous? Perhaps. But it is not for mortals to judge the whims of divinity, so I advise you – don’t.
As for the other gods and goddesses, my history is written, there isn’t much to muse on. I’ve tumbled with Zeus, but let’s be honest, who hasn’t?
Still, I prefer the taste of mortality. So much sweeter is life caked in opportunity, pressed to the edge of almost certain damnation.
Once bathed in my ethereal light, you may find yourself wanting. But I am a benevolent goddess. It’ll be fun, I promise. All I require is your adoration and care for your planet. If you can give me that, I will give you the most precious gift I can: illumination from the shadows you so fear.
