According to legends, the machismilodon, was gifted to Lunaqqua by Krimmr who sought her affection, and while the blue goddess gladly accepted his gift she had no interest in Krimmr in any way. To further tease the bearded warrior she decided to name her new companion, Fang. For untold decades the sabre-tooth wandered with his mistress and saw many marvels, but Krimmr's rage grew and grew and he hatched a plan to have Rel, the "God of Thieves" steal the beast from the goddess of the moons through seduction. While Lunaqqua did accept Rel's affections she saw through Kimmr's plans and seeking to keep Fang safe she created a moonbow so that he could hunt in safety on Selene, the larger of the two moons. To this day, when both Selene and Phobos are full, many on Hyperborea claim that Fang is free to return to this world and hunt while his mistress protects him from Krimmr's wrath.
