The Luminous Eye

Cosmos left behind Maia and Luna to renew his pursuit of carnal conquest. But he would not leave without signaling his high regard for them; so with his own hand he plucked out his flaming right eye and set it in the heavens to watch over his favorites and his children soon to be born. Thus the sun—Sol, the Luminous Eye—came into being.
