Yin and Yang were two elven twins born long ago, some say almost at the
beginning of time itself. Legend has it their parents were exiled from the
domain given to them by their God.
Yin and Yangs parents had disobeyed a direct command and were forced into
exile. The punishment for them and all future generations was decay of their
bodies, albeit over a much longer period of time than others of the Realm. 
The parents had been decieved, and chose to try to become as gods themselves.
This disobedience brought more troubles to the Realm than loss of immortality
however.
So it came to pass that Yin and Yang's mother gave birth to them after being
exiled from their previous domain. Their mother and father raised both boys to
love and obey their God. The mother and father had repented and learned from
their previous mistakes about the price of disobedience and the consequences
that it brings.
Yin and Yang, although they were brothers, were very different indeed. Some
would say as different as night and day. Yin enjoyed the beasts of land. Yin
took great pride in working with and keeping animals for food and also as
beasts of burden. Yang on the other hand enjoyed working with ground. Yang
enjoyed tilling the soil and planting growing and harvesting the crops. Both
brothers excelled in their chosen professions.
Now it came to pass that Yin and Yang were to bring an offering before their
God. Yin being a keeper of animals took some of the prized portions of the
firstborn of his flock. Yins God looked very favorably upon this offerng.
Yin's God was pleased by this. Yang also brought an offering to God. Yang had
brought some of the older fruits and vegetables he had harvested. Yang thought
to himself "These are very pretty to the eye, and pleasing to eat. Although
they are ot the freshest fruits, which i shall keep to sell, I am sure God
will not be displeased by this offering.
God saw the offerings brought by both of the brothers. He was very pleased
that Yin had brought the offering from the firstborn of his flock. Yins God
was looked very favorably upon him. God was not pleased with the offering that
Yang had brought, fully aware of the deception that Yang had done. God was
displeased with Yang. This made Yang upset, and flamed the fires of envy and
jealousy in him. Although deep down Yang knew it was his fault and he should
not give in to these bad feelings, it was a powerful hatred he developed for
his brother.
Yang eventually formulated a plan of revenge. Yang invited his brother into
his fields on the premise of showing him his wonderful crops that he had
grown. Yang was plotting to get his brother alone and away from any witnesses.
When the two brothers were finally alone, Yang rose up and killed Yin out
hatred and jealousy.
Yang's God eventually came to him and asked him about where his brother was.
Yang became defensive and pretended not to know, even sarcastically mocking
God about the question he asked. God then asked of Yang what he had done,
knowing full well what his actions were. God was saddened by this. God
punished Yang by exiling him from his crops and his homeland, making him
forever wander the realms. Yang cried out asking for mercy, afraid he would be
killed by others. God was not without mercy though, even for Yang. God told
Yang not to worry, no one would be allowed to harm him. Yang left the presence
of God and left the land he had known his entire life saddened by what he had
done.
Yang eventually married and had children of his own. Although his life was
never the same he did become a productive member of the realm. Yang spent the
rest of his days working and warning others of the high price that one fit of
rage and moment of jealousy can forever change your desting, and spoke of
patience and love for your brother.
