Roman
In ancient Rome, people believed that gods were actively involved in their everyday lives. The three supreme deities, known as the Capitoline Triad, were Jupiter (the supreme deity), Minerva (his daughter), and Juno (his wife). Other gods such as Mars, Mercury, Venus, and Cupid, also played major roles and represented different aspects of life, such as war, love, music, and beauty. The Romans held festivals for and brought offerings to their gods, such as Pax the goddess of peace.They believed that gods lived everywhere - in trees, in animals, by the side of the road, in a flower, in a stream, and in your house. Almost everything in Rome was driven by a spirit of some sort within it.

THE COLOSSEUM
The Flavian Amphitheatre a.k.a the Colosseum was the largest and most magnificent amphitheatre in Rome. Built from 72-80 AD, it was commissioned by the Flavian emperor Vespasian and could hold an amazing 50,000 spectators! Event's ranged from gladiatorial fights, mock sea battles, and wild animal hunts. No stranger to fighting in the Arena of the gods, Mercury pauses to take in the sights and bask in the adoration of the crowd.
SESTERTIUS COIN
As a master thief, Mercury knows his way around coins. Roman coins were first mass produced in Italy around the 4th century BCE and lasted for around another 8 centuries before discontinuation. They come in various precious metals and sizes and their best known values are the Sestertii and the Denarii. The coins also functioned as a way to inform the empire about the latest rulers as the emperors’ facial profiles were depicted on each coin.
Norse
In Norse Mythology, the gods and the earth were created at the death of Ymir, the primordial deity and ice-giant. Before he was slain, the cow Audhumla, who was created with the same materials as Ymir, started to lick the salt off an ice block which in turn created the god Buri, who then immediately produced a son of his own, Borr. While Ymir fell asleep after drinking the cow’s milk, he too bore a son and a daughter out of his armpits and a six headed frost giant grew out of his feet. It was not too long before the frost giants and the gods did not get along with each other; the forces of good and evil were at war. One day Borr married the giantess Bestla, who gave them three mighty sons: Odin, Vili, and Ve. The trio decided to join their father, Borr, at defeating the frost giants, which they succeeded by killing the mighty Ymir. Thus, out of Ymir’s flesh the Midgard or the earth was created, of his blood the sea, of his bones the hills, and of his hairs the trees. With his skull the heavens were born and with the scattering of his brain the clouds. Odin, the sky-father, and his sons Loki and Thor, ruled the city of Asgard, home of the gods. Here they defended the advances of the evil frost-giants of Jotun-heim. Aesir, as the Norse gods were called, were full of courage and heroism.

Viking Raider
Ships were a very important part in Viking society. They portrayed them in jewelry, coins, stones, and were even used as burial monument. These ships had the strength to survive strong ocean currents and even shallow waters. One of the most famous of these Longships was the Oseberg. This ship, with ornate animal carvings, was discovered in Norway as a viking burial site.
Lord Slashington III
The vikings were passionate seafarers and, aboard their long ships, raided the British coast in order to find riches and glory. As these journeys were so perilous the vikings made sure to pray to Njörðr in hopes that the sea remained calm and to Thor for strength and courage. Monasteries in particular were targeted by these viking raiders for their enormous amounts of wealth.
Chinese
The creation of the universe and the world began with the mighty god Pangu. Awoken by the discord from the formation of the universe, he swung his axe to break through the chaos. The exposed lighter matter of the chaos ascended and became the sky while the darker matter sunk and became the earth. Pangu stood in between the two layers and pushed up the sky. Once the earth and sky have reached its limit, Pangu created the world by sacrificing himself to form the world. Wind and Cloud was created from his breath; his voice became thunder; the sun was formed from his left eye and the moon from his right; his hair transformed into the stars and sky; his blood turned into the lakes and rivers, his bones became minerals, the rain came from his sweat, and the fur on his body transformed into forests and fields. As for mankind, it is said that Nu Wa dipped a rope in clay and when she flicked the rope a human arose from each globule that landed on earth. The world was divided into three realms consisting of the heavens, the earth, and the underworld. The Jade Emperor is the supreme ruler of the heavens and is the main authorization in the heavenly court. The heavenly court encompasses all the gods worshiped in China.

This ancient tradition was known as “He Bo’s marriage”.

In the Ming Dynasty, these temples functioned as schools where people could study Confucian ways.
Demon Catcher Zhong Kui
In the past, the Chinese would hang pictures of Zhong Kui only on New Years Eve. Nowadays his paintings are hung on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, the same time as the Dragon Boat Festival. In the late Eighteenth-century, many perished from the plague that paintings of the demon exorcist were given away as gifts in hopes that Zhong Kui will ward off the evil with his godly power. Today, it is known as a tradition.

These universes are created by Lord Brahma, known as the Creator, maintained by Lord Vishnu the Sustainer and destroyed by Lord Shiva.
