Legend of Genesis

 

Author’s note:

No magic, no skills, no jobs, no status, no harem, he’s not OP. Rather I should say, the protagonist is the weakest.

The protagonist was an ordinary high schooler, but then suddenly he got summoned to a different world, tears were shed, guts were spilled, nevertheless, he clenched his teeth, and led his fellow companions into battle not yet been formed. There was nobody other than him, and nothing other than him. He was lo, and as a result, after a certain point, in stories he became known as the worst destroyer in history.

*The main character decides to fight in chapter 13

*The first battle/war lasts from about chapter 17 to chapter 19.

One, the death of the Demiurge[1] and birth of the gods

 

Back then, rather than millions of years, it was billions of years ago; the olden days. First, there was the Demiurge, who was at Genesis[2]. When the world had not yet been formed.  There was nobody other than him, and nothing other than him.

He was lonely.

For some time, he had patiently expected an existence the same as him to appear. However, nobody else besides him was born for thousands of years afterwards. In the end, the loneliness was too much to endure, and so the Demiurge took his own life.

Thereupon losing his life, seven gods were born from his body.

The god of fire was born from his flowing blood. The goddess of water was born from his flowing tears. The goddess of earth was born from his flesh. The god of the wind was born from his last sigh. The god of beasts was born from his genitalia. The god of birds was born from his hair. And finally, the god of humans was born completely from his head.

 

Two, the birth of the world and people

 

Firstly, the world was too dark, so the god of fire took the heart of the Demiurge, and placed it into the sky, creating the sun. With this, the world shone, and was wrapped in it’s burning heat.

Then, from the body of the Demiurge, a lizard, a serpent, and so forth were born, and were praised by the god of fire. Before long, the god of fire gave some of them power, and they became Dinosaurs.

Due to the world almost being burnt by the heat of the sun, the goddess of water created a cloud which blocked out the light, and suppressed the heat as it rained. Then, fish were born from the body of the Demiurge, and they were praised by the goddess of water. Eventually, the goddess of water gave power to some of them, and they became Mermen.

Because of the world almost being completely covered by water, the goddess of earth prevented the Demiurge’s body from being submerged by a continent and mountain. Then, insects were born from the body of the Demiurge, and they were praised by the goddess of the earth. When the goddess of the earth gave some of them power, they became Dwarves.

Because the world was too steep and hardened, the god of wind blew his breath upon the earth. Then, trees and grass sprouted from the body of the creator, and some of them were praised by the god of wind. When the god of wind have power to some of them, they became Elves.

Because the plants were going to cover up the world, the god of beasts tore through the vegetation. Then, beasts were born from the body of the Demiurge, and they were praised by the god of beasts. When the god of beasts gave some of them power, they became Zoan[3].

Because too many corpses of the beasts laid upon the world, the god of birds was born. Then, birds were born from the body of the Demiurge, and they were praised by the god of birds. When the god of birds gave some of them power, they became Harpies.

As for the god of humans, he had heard the overflow of voices from the creatures in the world, which was filled with worship to the respective gods.

“I will also make those who would worship me, just like my sibling gods.”

As he said so, a human was born from the body of the Demiurge. However, the human whom had been born had neither fangs, nor claws, neither scales, or feathers.

“Oh! Why was such a weak creature created?”

The human god grieved in sorrow.

The god of fire, whom was unable to remain indifferent, granted man the wisdom to use fire. However, the god of humans did not stop grieving.

Next, the goddess of water taught man about the uses of water, and how to catch fish. But, the god of humans did not stop grieving.

Furthermore, the goddess of earth granted the wisdom to cultivate the soil and obtain food, the wisdom from the god of wind to get fruit, the wisdom from the god of beasts of how to fight against a beast, and the wisdom from the god of birds of how to drop[4]a bird. When the god of humans was finally satisfied, he stopped grieving, and said to the humans:

“You will use fire, catch fish, cultivate the soil, pick vegetation, hunt beasts, and drop birds. Obtain everything in this world, and you will prosper greatly.”

Thus, the god of humans gave humankind greed to deprive the world of everything.


Footnotes:

1. TL: ‘Demiurge’, in basic, is the one responsible for the creation of the universe. 創造(Souzou) means “Creation”, and 神(Kami), for those who have never watch Dragon Ball Z, means “God”, so it translates into “God of Creation”.
2. TL: So for the folks that don’t know what Genesis is because you have either A, not read the bible(I sure haven’t), or B, haven’t had someone explain it to you or you haven’t looked it up, Genesis is basically the beginning of everything, and I debated referring to the “Demiurge” as Genesis, since in Christianity, if I’m not mistaken(I’m agnostic, so don’t expect me to know too much of this shiz), God is referred to as Alpha(The beginning) and Omega(The end).
3. TL: So, if you are a One Piece fan(I ain’t), then you probably know what a Zoan Devil Fruit User is, if not, then click the link, but they are more or less Beastmen from my understanding.
4. TL: It uses 落とす(Otosu), which can mean “to drop”. If my understanding is correct, then it can also be looked at as “to down” like in certain context, “I downed an enemy”, etc, but don’t trust my word on it.
