Mythology and Historical References: Ayekah The Damned is loosely based in the history and myth of ancient people in north and Mesoamerica; their Rites, Sacred Spaces, Underworld and Stone Tablets. His name is akin to Genesis 3:9. When after Adam and Eve eat from the forbidden tree, God asked Adam, "where are you” or "ayeka" in Hebrew. Also, Samael's fallen angel as the "watchers, holy ones" and they "fell" after they became "enamored" with human women."
Haya the virgin is akin to Samael's counterpart Lilith who seduces angels. Haya can mean "to live or 'have life," or "to give" or "restore life"; (Genesis 25:6, Joshua 3:10), lively (2 Samuel 23:20), and reviving (Genesis 18:10, 2 Kings 4:16).
Synopsis: The saga of mystery and otherworld powers continues after generation of female twins are born from Haya’s fetus. One is fertile and gives birth to twins; the other is the watcher and guide.
Like moss on a stone of destiny, the women overcome terrifying ordeals. Beautiful and haunting, endowed with a sixth sense, they rebel but cannot deny that their otherworldly encounters are beyond their control.
Ayekah forms The Retais to safeguard and influence them, but they are fearless, even when confounded by terrifying events and apparitions.
"And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth." Revelations 12:16."
