It is said that many years ago, Tiir-na, high guardian of Tiirslin, decided she would make a Star. It would be a symbol of her love for Lopin kind. She did not wish to blind them with this Star, and so she drew the darkest stone from deep within the earth. She formed it carefully, and gave it shape, a “perfect imperfection”, that it might not outshine the beauty of her world. She bound it with silver and forged a chain, one that could only be broken by her own hands, and then she breathed a bright blue flame into the Star. She named the flame Arila: the fire within, but the Star alone could not hold Arila. The Star was far too small, and so Tiir-na took each living thing into her hands, then breathed Arila’s spark into each heart. That having been done, Arila was finally small enough to reside within the star, the largest portion to be placed upon Tiirslin within a single form. She gave the star unto the Lopin king, that he might make her many more alike in size and shape to be distributed among her Lopin.
When the copies were completed, 110 in all, Tiir-na bade her king come forth. She placed a Tirna Star around his neck, then told him of its worth, “A time will come, my king, when the Lopin will be scattered, tortured, killed. They will lose hope and pray for death, and in that time, I will send a Lopin Queen. She will be strong and brave, a Lopin Warrior Queen, and she will save our people. She will come to bear the one true Star, and she will call Arila home. She will make Arila whole once more, and set Arila free. "
