MOPII STORY WORLDWIDE
Mopii @ Tulikettu
Before the 12th century BC, in northern Finland and Lapland, there was a Firefox, Tulikettu. Tulikettu is a magical giant fox that lives in the snow-capped mountains in the extreme north. Catching a Firefox is every hunter's dream because they believed that the hunter who catches it will be rich for the rest of their lives. Tulikettu resembles a phoenix bird, and only one Tulikettu appears at a time. No one can catch Firefox because it's as fast as the wind. People can only see the magical light in the sky when Tulikettu’s fur touches the snow as the Firefox runs fast on the snowy hills. Until today, the Finnish word for Northern Lights is still Revontulet, which literally means Firefox.
Legend has it that this giant Firefox is a descendant of Teumessian Fox (Cadmean Vixen) in ancient Greek mythology. Laelaps is a hound destined to catch what it chases, and Teumessian Fox is destined never to be caught. So when Lailapus met Termesian Fox, the chase went on, but Lailapus couldn't get close to Termes Fox, and Termes Fox couldn't get rid of Lailapus. Until Zeus decided he couldn't let their chase continue on Earth, so as the fox and the hound ran across the plains of Thebes, Zeus turned both animals to stone and then turned them into two constellations, Canis Major (Laelaps) and Canis Minor (Teumessian Fox). After that, their chasing has been continuing in the distant night sky. Let's walk into the metaverse world of Mopii to explore the paradox of the inescapable chasing hound and the uncaptured fox in ancient times.
