I'm not really your normal flower spirit, I wasn't planted, I wasn't created, nor was I changed into one by Persephone. I just appeared. My mother, as I call her, Elpis, the goddess of Hope, got trapped in a jar which that woman Pandora opened, I can't blame her for her curiosity because I too would have opened it, but my mother was the only one that remained on earth to comfort mankind. She held flowers in her arms everyday and night without fail, one of these flowers however contained me, a flower spirit. One morning when she awoke she saw me and asked me who I was, thinking I was probably a mortal or something of the likes. I shrugged and just said "I don't know.". She smiled sadly, obviously pitying me before she asked me if I knew my name, I again just shrugged, she then looks at me sadly before naming me Hope, the most powerful emotion, the emotion I lacked.
Elpis, my mother, and I travelled around usually visiting mortals in need of a little hope, I remember once we had to comfort this woman who just lost her child to a serious medical condition, she was a lovely lady, I still wonder what happened to her. I never really noticed how vain and selfish the gods were until the 3 goddesses, Aphrodite, Hera and Athena, competed with each other for the golden apple which Eris had left. I didn't know that at the time of course but in the end I ended up putting 2 and 2 together and came up with 4. From that moment on I loathed the gods but I always kept a smile on my face because you'll never know what they'll do if they found out about you hatred. I preferred being around mortals than gods, they had a more joyful look about them, they weren't as stubborn, vain and selfish as the deities I'd came in contact with. It wasn't until about 1997 when I confronted my mother Elpis about it. Elpis wasn't like most other gods, she was more humble, she was good, she wasn't power hungry, she loved helping mortals in need, although I hated most gods, I could never hate her, not after what she's done for me.
The next morning I awoke to find my flower planted in a flower pot beside my bed and a note from my mother explaining how that if I couldn't stand being around the gods I could go to camp or just wander the wilderness with my flower, I had to smile at my mother's kindness, now that I'm writing my life story I regret leaving her, but at the same time I don't, it's weird. I wandered the wilderness for about 10 years living off plants and animals, I tried to eat more plant than animals as technically they're not like alive like you and I but I found it hard to as I am a plant, in retrospect. It was me and my flower, a beautiful iris, wandering around for what seemed to be forever until around 2009 where a found a cave in Blue Ridge Mountains, I stayed there until I saw a few people walking up the mountain, curious of where they were going, I followed them and somehow ended up in this castle like building. I found out I had found the Broken Covenant, I'd never heard of it before, which was surprising. I found out about what they stood for and I joined the Ortu Justitiae, agreeing with their ideology the most.
