Now Adamilus had a son which was his firstborn, and he called his name Cain, a bright
and cheerful child, filled with laughter and happy mischief; and as he grew into
manhood, Cain became a great and noble teacher for which all men had regard; for
he taught the skills of metal smithing and the mysteries of the forge.
Background: The name Cain is a shortened version of Cainicus. On every mortal world
where dispensations are established, the first son of Adamilus and Evelah is always
given the name Cainicus (Cain). There are two individuals named Cain in the Song
of God: the Cain who lived on this earth (Beginnings 1-7), and the firstborn son
of Adamilus on the world of Terralee (4th Endowment 8:5-20).
Summary: The first son of Adamilus and Evelah on the world of Terralee, Cain became
a great master and teacher of metal smithing. Highly regarded by his family and all
who knew him, Cain was known for his storytelling and laughter. With the guidance
of his sister, Mahali, Cain built the first potter’s wheel. He also built an oven
for her to use in her work with clay.
