Jamaa Culture

The Story

And so it was that the Sky Father was named Zios. He created many stars and planets, and set them in motion. But after eons of creation, he became lonely. So he created the Sky Mother, a grey heron, and named her Mira. 
Mira was beautiful and kind and they were very happy together. She loved Zios deeply and often told him how talented he was, encouraging him to create. Together, Zios and Mira created their masterpiece: a lush land filled with oceans, mountains, meadows, and all kinds of plants and animals. They named this special world Jamaa, and for hundreds of years, the world and its animals were at peace. 
But today, all is not well in Jamaa. A mysterious dark force has crept into the land, stealing away animals and ruining the beauty of Jamaa. Only you can help save the animals and restore the world to its glory. Please help, for you are Jamaa's only hope. 
~Ancient AJ Legend


How Phantoms Came to Jamaa

Mira, the Sky Mother, was heartbroken after she lost her companion spirit, Zios, the Sky Father. Her feelings of sadness and anger fell to the earth of Jamaa. Mira's tears mixed with the elements of Jamaa and formed the dark mysterious phantoms that haunt this land today. Because of  the sadness and anger that they were created from, the phantoms' only goal is to bring chaos and destruction to Jamaa. ~adapted ancient AJ legend



Liza

Brave and powerful Liza is the panda Shaman. She values exploration and intellectual pursuits, and has personally mapped a great majority of Jamaa. She is proud and determined in her manner, and she lets nothing stand in the way of her latest expedition to a far off land. Liza doesn't stand still for long, and never has much time to talk before having to dash off. She created most of the exploration-based challenges in Animal Jam and she presses all animals in the world to document Jamaa. She has a kind, motherly manner about her; very encouraging and very gentle. She believes that anyone can do better, and reach higher. ~Ancient AJ Legend

Greely

Greely, the reluctant wolf Shaman, puts his creepy cleverness to use in the study of animal magic. He is definitely on the side of good and righteousness, but he plays by his own rules. He speaks in to-the-point sentences, even to new animals, and has a certain amount of disdain for the other Shaman leaders. The only higher power that Greely respects is the Sky Mother, Mira. Greely is a powerful warrior against the phantoms in Animal Jam; they fear him most of all, because he is so much like them. He is the link to the darker side of the Animal Jam mythology. He has theories about where the phantoms came from and he may even know the location of a few undiscovered spirit stones. ~Ancient AJ Legend

Sir Gilbert

Sir Gilbert, the regal tiger Shaman, is a proud warrior. He takes his ancestry very seriously and always makes it a point to honor those that came before him when going into battle. Even though he has a rough appearance, Sir Gilbert is a very thoughtful, spiritual animal with a caring nature. His personality is serious, reverential, and soft-spoken. He has a deep, low voice that can be as soothing as it is menacing. As a mentor to new tigers, Sir Gilbert can be a tough teacher, but he possesses great wisdom and knows a lot about the history of Jamaa and its ongoing struggle with the phantoms that inhabit the Animal Jam world. ~Ancient AJ Legend

Cosmo

Cosmo the koala Shaman is an expert herbalist. He makes up for his small stature by being very animated and cheerful about everything, and feels that even a small person can have a big personality. Cosmo is a true academic, and loves to study books and do field research. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of herbs and their uses, and he's often consulted by other shaman about threats to the natural world. He acknowledges the spiritual world but prefers to concentrate on things that he can see and touch... and eat. As a mentor to new koalas in Jamaa, Cosmo is friendly and patient with beginners. He's a natural born teacher and loves taking a group of students out into a field to study plants.~Ancient AJ Legend


Graham

Graham is the monkey Shaman who can always be found building, fixing, and inventing things, as well as using tool in the world. He can craft tools that other animals can use without needing hands or thumbs. He's a born tinkerer and never leaves and tool alone without trying to improve it or develop it further. Graham has a bizarre sense of humor and likes to play innocent pranks on new animals in Animal Jam. ~Ancient AJ Legend

Peck

Cute but definitely not cuddly, Peck is the rabbit Shaman. She is the loud and feisty one of the group, and she is a nonconformist and very independent. She lets her punk rock creative spirits guide her, and likes her music loud and her clothing even louder! Peck is friendly to everyone and sees herself as just one of the gang. She doesn’t flaunt her Shaman status, and as a matter of fact can be a little embarrassed at being treated with reverence. Peck loves to create, and is a gifted interior designer, painter, and musician. She does her best to leave her distinctive mark of color-meets-attitude wherever she goes throughout Jamaa. ~Ancient AJ Legend

  5. Zios was the Sun God I believe.
    I'd like to think Mira was the Moon Spirit, but that wouldn't make sense.

    As a side note, "mira" is Spanish for "listen". *derp*

    1. Zios created jamaa

      Delete
    2. I know that, but he created it with Mira.

      Zios was represented as the sun, since the world revolves around the sun.

      Plus the sun is pretty important, like... oh, sustaining life.

      It's not really a wonder why he is always a golden sun-like figure.

    3. Actually mira means "look" but it's also a name.

      Delete
    4. Yes, you're right, my Spanish is a bit rusty. ^^;

      It is a name... which is why Mira has it as a name. XD

      Delete
    5. Mira: Mira |ˈmīrə | Astronomy
      a star in the constellation Cetus, regarded as the prototype of long-period variable stars.

      This is what I got from looking up "Mira". ^-^
      Its cool that we now know where her name comes from..
      lets see what zios means..

      Zios: No results found

      DARNY DARN DARN… I was hoping it came from somewhere..
      Oh, wondering how I looked it up?
      Well, if you have a mac, you can highlight and then right click on a word and then press "look up" and you get results. :)

      Now lets see what the male alpha's names mean…

      Gilbert: Gilbert (given name), a masculine given name
      Graham: Graham (given name), an English language given name
      Greely: Greely may refer to:
      Adolphus Greely
      Greely, Ontario
      Fort Greely

      Okaaaaaaay…. I am quite not impressed with the results. I wanted to see what the alphas names MEANT.
      Plus, the names of the people on the list of "Greelys" are actually spelled "Greeley", not "Greely".



      huh.

  6. Was Mira a daughter and the wife of Zios?

    I guess our concept of traditional love doesn't apply to celestial beings. :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, According to ancient Jamaa legend passed down from the Turai of Jamaa (I am one, Smeea) Zios and Mira's daughter's name is Zushcia, and a son named Zoro.. Jamagram me usrnme is smeea

      Delete
    2. Actually, that was never written by AJHQ.
      Mira is, in fact, the wife of Zios.
      She isn't his "daughter", and, (in my theory), he didn't actually "make her", but instead gave her his power.

      Just my theory, because in my opinion zios and Mira aren't deities.

  7. Hey jammer33445
    If mira is the mother of jamaa why is she the last one who existed
    Anna/jammer33445/Jade

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She might be the last celestial being that we know of, but there could be more out there. Plus she might have the ability to create another god, but it would probably be as powerful as a shaman and not a true god.

      She could make another god (for example, maybe a son or daughter) with the power of Zios to help, but since he is dead for unknown reasons, we only have Mira for now.

    2. Don't bully people who don't have as much experience as you, idiot.
      (I am calling you an idiot because you used bad grammar. You should know that putting the "much" in there doesn't make sense at all.)
      (and because of the swearing).

      Goodbye, devilish fiend.

It was COOL! Wish it hadn't changed. :( And I never saw beta dens but they seem to be WAY better than current nonmember dens. :( I wish we knew stuff about the newer shamans.

    Did they?
    Well anyways…
    Sorry if I annoyed any of u guys.
