The story of oshun is a complex story indeed. Unlike ochosi who had a very troublesome upbringing, ultimately made choosing the lifestyle of an Orisha assassin, an Easier decision. Oshun, was forced onto the path of becoming an Orisha.
She was raised by a family who deeply cared for her. She had a mother and a father who did all they could. Working to make sure her and her siblings could have a life where they could live the way they wanted, and one day become what they wanted to be. It was a life most could only dream of having. However, like most dreams they all come to an end. One night after a usual day, an unknown group of drifters came into the home of her and her family. This group of people mercilessly tortured and killed both her, her parents, and siblings. All left for dead, however due to an unforeseen circumstance, one child survived and hung unto life. Having to take time to recover and regain her strength, the child was now only driven by the desire for vengeance for her slaughtered family. Living by only one thought and one desire. That one day she would be able to kill those who took everything away from her.
Having lost everything, and not knowing who the drifters are, where they’re from, or even what they look like, still the child decided to search and try to find those who are responsible for her families death. However, not knowing the land, how to fend for herself or not even knowing how to cook, the child eventually was lost to the wilderness. Stranded, tired, hungry, and lost, once again she is knocking on deaths door. But, fate was on her side; because, she was found by an unusual old man. This old man lived in the wilderness and spent his entire life there. Taking the child and helping her recover. This unusual old man learns about her story and how everything was taken from her. He learns about her path for vengeance and her desire to kill those responsible. The old man, knowledgeable to lost arts and religions that few know exist in this world decides to teach the child, teaching and instilling into her unique skills and abilities.
Now, having gone through this rigorous training she has now gained a very unusual power that only develops into a chosen few. it seems because of her upbringing, tragic lost, and having to gone through years of work and discipline. She now has a rare ability that can be used to either protect or to kill. And, with this new power she has now been crowned as the Orisha, Oshun. Like the Orisha of old Oshun can use her power to protect those who can’t fend for themselves and be a guardian angel of the People. Or, take a different path and become an angel of death, and use her power to seek vengeance and kill all those who may stand in her way. To protect and guard or to bring death and judgement. This will now be the battle for oshun. She will now have to use the power and knowledge that has been instilled into her as a guide to help her on the path that she will ultimately chose.
