Just a quick question. I have four gods in my novel, and I'm trying to assign one of the four elements and a related animal to each of them. I obviously want them to be related to their magic, but I'm struggling with a couple. Here's what I got: Life/creation: earth, deer Death/destruction: water, snake Spirit/illusion: air, crow Time/precognition: fire, fox My issue is with the last two. Time could be related to air, but I keep seeing the Goddess of Time as a feisty deity with flaming red hair, and it's hard to separate her from fire. Other than that, I can't give a good reason why she would represent fire. Spirit could be related to fire (rebirth and all that), but the crow is related to air and is often considered to bring messages from the afterlife (which relates to spirits). And the crow is a very important part of my story, so I need it to be related to either Time or Spirit. Opinions? Does what I have make sense? Any better combinations? Any additional insight you may have? Please and thanks.
