Would you read the story that contains this Lore? Or is it too far-fetched or stupid?

This is the Lore as simple as I could make it.

So a little backstory. Somewhere around the time when the Mayans figured out the stars, a few of Greek and Roman expats got together and formed a group of intelligent people that found a way to travel to other planets. After setting out on a trip around the world to gather as much information as they can on planets to find the best one to go to, they ran into a Mayan who agreed to help them. Now, in 2021, In a Paralel Universe where there is no virus, on a planet named Gaia, the civilization of AshMen stands strong, but they live with a goal they’re too afraid to do anything to reach because of the risk it brings.

So, I tried making a personality of one the Main Characters, but I wrote a little too little about her personality, and a little too much about the lore that explains the AshMen (or AshHumans if you wish)

The LONG personality/bio/lore of Amethyst

Amethyst (name meaning sober/jewel) is a young woman raised in a family that isn’t very rich, but they do possess one of the Hermes Jewels. The said jewels were used in the olden days to communicate with people of Earth, however, the only people they could communicate with didn’t hold up with the discovery of the Americas. After that they could no longer recieve messages even though they could either sent them or pick up signals and decypher them, they only resorted to sending messages when absolutely needed. However they never used them because they never needed to send messages to humans for there wasn’t a single human who knew about the message nor were theere any messages known by the Melatropos (Literally means AshMen in Ancient Greek because Melia - ash, Anthropos - human; they called themselves Ash Humans because they noticed their skin turned ashy due to evolving by living on a different planet) that were of use to Humans or vice versa. They could recieve messages still and that is how they kept updating their database about humans (they created a civilization on another planet in hopes of helping humanity in case they ruin Planet Earth or in case of overpopulation so keeping tabs on humans is necessary). The Hermes Jewels were once used by many, it was like a telephone connection between two Planets, but once there were no more humans they could contact, most of the Hermes Jewels were destroyed, except the few most powerful ones, but to not give them to people who would use them stupidly and so they could be used scarcely, those few powerful Hermes Jewels were given to people by the Kings of the 3 biggest civilizations only to those people deemed smart enough to handle them. The families of those people were given a title Jocalnax (Yo-kal-nax from Jocale(Lat. jewels)+Anax (Greek “leader,chief,lord”). Amethyst’s father was a Jocalnax and he chose to give the Hermes Jewel of the family to her. Folks thought it was a stupid decision to give the jewel to her when he had children who were more knowledgable than she seemed to be. She had a fun, folks-loving and fun-loving attitude, usually being nice, sweet, going out of her way to help folks, and she had a somewhat bubly personality. Becuase of the friendly, bubly personality, folks thought she wasn’t very intelligent, but she wasn’t bubly becase she wasn’t very intelligent, instead she was bubly despite her intelligence, but folks didn’t see that. She was also brave, despite the fact the folk of Gaia (her planet, folk is their word for people from old Germanic - fulka, English people also used this word to create their “folks” and “folklore” words) really didn’t want people to know about them until they were ready to introduce themselves propperly as to not intimidate humans, Amethyst took a huge risk and took action (of which her father was the only one proud because he was an action-taker just like her, not a bystander fearing risk and not doing anything just because doing something is too risky), found a way to travel to Earth with her friends and to travel back once she was on Earth herself (by the huge help of the MC, but nevertheless she wouldn’t have found it had she never took that huge step for Melatropity (Ash-humanity).

I warn you hought, it would be a mix between Ancient Greek, Ancient Roman and Ancient Native American values and cultures, and then it would be accumulated because the civilization in question progressed and not stayed the same, because after almost 2 millenia things are bound to change

But thank you, It’s nice to know you don’t think it’s disrespectful or boring

Thank you guys, that means a lot to me because I doubted myself about this idea for a long time (Thought it also took me long because whenever I get writer’s block or I don’t feel motivated I just stop straight away and do something else until I’m in the mood again which takes time)

Off … How do I break this to you nicely? I’m no Tolkien so don’t expect fleshed out representation when it comes to languages. I know you are all accustomed to seeing full on fake lanaguges and stuff, but all I’m making is taking some words of greek origin, some of roman origin and some of native american origin and exchanging some words in English with them because I’m not quote on the level of making a language or learning more than one ancient language for the sake of an Episode story. I’m sorry … :frowning:
