Mene is the former goddess of the moon. She is worshipped by the elves[1]. She is said to live in the Lotuses of Mene[2]. It is yet unclear why she vanished and how she relates to Selemene.

[3][4][5][6]

Prophecy[]

A prophecy predicts the return of Mene[7], when the Lotuses of Mene are laid down on the Earth by Invoker minimap icon.png Invoker[8].

Trivia[]

  • Mene is the old name of Dota 2's Selemene before it was replaced for unknown reasons, so any mention of Mene in Dota 2 lore refers to the same moon goddess Selemene. In Dota: Dragon's Blood, however, they are two distinct and individual goddesses.[9]

    Fymryn: You're afraid. Don't be.
    Davion: *sighs* Trust me, it's a new experience. It's like I'm two people. Davion the Dragon Knight, and I'm him. And for the longest time, I thought I was just Davion who sometimes became the other thing. But what if I had it wrong? What if I had it backwards?
    Fymryn: We're all two people. The priests teach Mene is more than Goddess of the Moon. She is the Goddess of Night. The Goddess of Shadow. There can be no shadow without a light to cast it. Walk in shadow, know the light.
    Davion: Walk in shadow, know the light.

    Fymryn: A thousand years ago, deep in the Nightsilver Woods, the Sun shut her eyes and the moon turned to blood.
    Elf Girl: Did it hurt?
    Fymryn: It made her weak.
    Elf Boy: Mene, Goddess of the Moon.
    Fymryn: Yes. Ssh. Listen now. The night turned red, and our goddess was trapped in shadow by Selemene.
    Elf Boy: Selemene, the Dark Moon Goddess.
    Elf Girl: Mene is still inside the shadow?
    Fymryn: She is.
    Elf Girl: Can she get out?
    Elf Girl: Why? Why did Selemene do that?
    Fymryn: Selemene wanted worship from the Coriel'tauvi. Punished anyone who wouldn't call her Goddess.
    Elf Girl: But some elves, they did say her prayers to her? To Selemene?
    Fymryn: Yes, some did. Some still do.
    Elf Girl: But she's evil.
    Fymryn: That's how evil works sometimes.
    Elf Boy: But—
    *The boy gets silenced by Fymryn who places her forefinger on his lips*
    Fymryn: Selemene banished anyone who wouldn't pray to her, far from our home in the Nightsilver Woods, into the darkest corners of the world.
    *Fymryn gazes upon the Elven shrine that was once dedicated to Mene*
    Fymryn: Our true Goddess left this world, but everyday we worship Mene, so one day she'll come back to us.
    *The elven children and Fymryn pray in unison, saying "Praise the Moon of Mene" in prayerful tones*
    Elf Boy: But if Mene is dead, how does she come back?
    Fymryn: Through belief. Worship. What is divine may never die. You see, Mene left a gift for us in the Temple. Her magical lotuses.
    Elf Boy: Presents? But they're just flowers.
    Fymryn: Special flowers. She lived for her flowers, so when he lays the flowers on the earth, she will return.
    Elf Boy: Uhh...who is "he"?
    Fymryn: "He" is a man with spectacular knowledge and power. A sorcerer.
    Elf Girl: Does he have a name?
    Fymryn: He doesn't. He lives in a miraculous tower, tucked in the valley of the highest mountains. And that's where I will go. And I will bring him these.
    *Fymryn opens her bag, containing the magical lotuses that she stole from the usurper's temple. The children gather around the magic lotuses and gaze in wonder*
    Elf Boy: The presents! *gasps* You're going to bring back Mene. You're going to take us home!
    Elf Girl: I don't wanna go home. I want more story!
    Fymryn: *chuckles* Don't worry. There's plenty left to tell.
  5. DOTA: Dragon's Blood, Book 1, Episode 3: Neverwhere Land
    Dyfed: The stories, what makes you so sure?
    Fymryn: This.
    *She disappears in a flash of shadow and teleports behind her friends*
    Fymryn: This is why. I can do this.
    *She teleports towards Dyfed, disguised as him*
    Fymryn: And this.
    *She teleports besides Adara, disguised as her*
    Idwal: Ooh! Now do me!
    *She disappears from sight, only to appear as multiple copies of Idwal*
    Fymryn: I can even make it seem like I was never here at all.
    *She then disappears completely, nowhere to be seen*
    Dyfed: You should've told us...
    Fymryn: Told you what? That I'm a freak? Would you have looked at me the same?
    Adara: The stories say Mene's priests and warriors could do those things. But Mene is gone. She's dead.
    Fymryn: Or maybe some part of Mene is still out there. And she has chosen me.
    Dyfed: No. Mene has chosen us.
    *The pod holds hands together in a circle, expressing their accord with each other*
  6. DOTA: Dragon's Blood, Book 2, Episode 7: The Violet Hour
    Invoker: Beliefs change. Trust breaks. Faith endures. For a thousand years, the exiled Coriel'tauvi knew darkness. Mene was gone. Slain. Yet her people still worshipped. They loved. They offered faith to dark shrines in remembrance of a dead goddess. But love is a powerful magic. It is the highest form of worship. Divine. Even in the absence of a deity. Love for our goddess found echo in the sparks Selemene had stolen. Over time, Mene's echo took form. It became manifest. A physical expression of pure, collective will. Need. Love. It became a child. It became you.
    Fymryn: I just...I have abilities.
    Invoker: The goddess' abilities. Weakened to be sure, but they are hers.
