AJ Secrets: Phantoms

Phantoms are a mysterious and dark aspect of Jamaa. Everyone wonders about how they come to inhabit this land. Today I am pleased to tell you that I have discovered that very story. Found from ancient artifacts this legend is what happened, how the phantoms' darkness has come to the land of Jamaa.


How Phantoms Came to Jamaa
Mira, the Sky Mother, was heartbroken after she lost her companion spirit, Zios, the Sky Father. Her feelings of sadness and anger fell to the ground as whisps of black fog, a dark substance that comes from the fabric of time.  These 'tears' of Mira's spirit mixed with the elements of Jamaa and formed the dark mysterious phantoms that haunt this land today. Because of  the sadness and anger that they were created from, the phantoms' only goal is to bring chaos and destruction to Jamaa. ~adapted AJ legend

What do you think jammers? Is it the phantoms' fault they are they way there were created? What are they guarding in the Lost Temple of Zios?

  1. I think the phantoms are just lonely! I think their mind makes them do bad things and they can't control themselves and just need some happiness... Or maybe they just get happiness from causing chaos! And I think they are guarding the spirit of Zios. Or maybe phantoms represent stress and loneliness because Mira no longer has Zios with her? So much to think about!

    3. Actually, Anonymous, its not MIRA's fault. I mean, she was grieving for her companion, is that bad or anything???? It was not Mira but the sadness and anger coming from her tears that created the devious Phantoms.

  2. dear snowy claw
    its me yomamajama. Anyway I think zios was not merely "lost" but had fallen to jamma smashing into his own idol and reveling the "lost temple" of zios underneath the idol, their in the "lost" underground temple, severely injured zios had passed away. Through the tears of longing from Mira the pure power of her lost love drove the phantoms toward the point of searching jamma for zios, destroying and smashing in a frantic search they eventually found lost temple. There the grouped and guarded the "lost" temple zios, where zios himself lays alone with only the phantoms that had manifested from the tears of his dear Mira...

    3. This is actually a very good theory. Even so, this does not explain why the attacks are not around the area. Maybe there are tunnels underneath in the lost temple. Maybe that's how they travel round Jamaa so quickly. Are the Phantoms attacking because a Jammer.... Or even a SHAMAN, stole a precious secret from the temple.

    1. Phantoms don't seem that bad. Actually, I think that jammers are worse than jammers. They keep on swearing, and stuff, and phantoms just stand there and float. HEY, we blow them up with spaceships, no wonder they're angry!

    2. LOL i love the last sentence!XD

  8. I don't think that its the phantoms fault they were created I don't even think its Mira's fault she was just sad. She didn't mean to create them. And maybe the phantoms are guarding the Lost Temple of Zios because Zois Grave is there and there guarding it because of mira's love for zios

    1. I kind of agree. Jammers wouldn't destroy Zios, I don't think. There would be some, who would, but nobody could be evil enough. Mira made them! SHE CREATED JAMAA! And Zios is kind of the prettiest land, in AJ.

    Just like it isn't a predator's fault that they have to eat meat, it's how the world of Jamaa works.

  12. i love this story and i think you did a superb job. i have been puzzling over the story of the phantoms for a long time, and just now i see this, the answer to my confusion. please write more dtories and share your artistic writing often. you can find me on aj as RaspberryRocker

  13. 1 out of 200 phantoms doesn't care at all about chaos and destruction. They can be kept as pets, if you're lucky enough to find one.

    P.S. If you do find one, let it go daily so it can explore temple zios and sarepia forest. (Well at least MINE likes sarepia...)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Another rare phantom! It hides in your clothing, cutting your hair without you noticing. It was probably created when Mira was crying because of Zios' disapearance, because maybe during that a feather fell off or something. Who else has found a rare or hard to find phantom?

  15. Ok from the legend i heard was:
    Phantoms inhabited Jamaa, They were Mystirious creatures that no1 knew about.

    Mira was walking with Zios, the Sky Father. She saw that Zios loved talking with them like Greeley the wolf Shaman.

    Mira saw that Zios was turn somewhat evil so she sadly banished him. The Temple had Zios' best phantoms all inside it. So she destroyed it.
    That is why The temple is in choas. That is also why Phantoms come out of it.

    So you see The phantom King got mad at Mira and now they are at war. BUT the phantoms think their king should be overthrown as they Love what Zios created- Jamaa!

  19. I made a song (To be sung in a taunting, naughty voice, by the phantoms themselves):

    Bow to the phantoms,
    the greatest of all
    fueled by the naughtiness of Jamma's resistance,
    we tear though the village, causing terror and pain

    Our hatred and anger
    towards Jamma was given
    by Mira herself,
    the almighty,
    not so mighty
    Mother of the sky

    For only pure love
    and kindness
    can defeat
    the phantoms
    forever
    from Jamma

  20. I really like this legend. But like Blossom Berryflower said, I think that the phantoms are lonely, and maybe even a bit angry. I think that they just want to let their anger and loneliness out, but they don't know how so they try to destroy everything they can. They want others to feel their anger and loneliness, not themselves.

    2. What does the horse shaman look like???! Come on, Lisa, the panda shaman isn't that bad. She got us off in a good start, even tho we culd figure it out ourselves. She wanted to protect Mira, if anything. Mira deserves to live down in honor. She earned it, jammers.

      Delete
  23. dear snowy claw I think we dont see any phantoms cause they all live in the soil and Zios came to jamaa made Mira and the phantoms fled to the ground and are planing war and maybe Zios had to stay away from Mira to protect her and not die.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i might get an animal jam blog soon because lots of people have one

    ReplyDelete
  25. so, if zios is an elephant, would that make him the sahman of jamaa? but like they found a new shaman to replace him or something???

  26. Hmm, About the shaman thing, they said they r here now, but its maybe about THEIR info.

  27. yeah like she said, they said were coming from our quests and they didn't show up which actually sucks cause i really wanted to meet them, especially Greely :(

    ReplyDelete
  32. The king phantom is after me my user is ninjaguyman for animal jam

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think that the thing in the Temple of Zios is something that crashed on the phantoms. When they see the jammers sleeping there they make nightmares to get their attention so they can be friends.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think that the Phantoms were after both Mira AND Zios but they only got Zios to go. While the horrid phantoms haunt Jamaa, Mira flew away to keep herself save and now a glistening statue of Mira stands proudly in the heart of Jamaa, Jamaa township. Now as I am typing jammers around the world are fighting phantoms, helping alpha's and having AMAZING adventures!

  37. Hi snowyclaw i have a question.
    If Mira is a bird, Lisa is a panda,
    and like Graham is a monkey,
    what is Zios? An elephant?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Very nice information. Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It is not the phantoms fault. Mira was the one who created them.
    So she made a threat for Jamaa. A real big threat that caused adventures today in Adventure Base Camp and animals (including alphas) to risk there life. Anyways, buddy me in Aj!
    I am angelina12204 and i hope you agree with me about this.

    Phantoms can't be held responsible for causing chaos. They were made out of the ingredients for chaos, so they might be evil against their will.

    P.S. my comment was the one that said, "It's not Mira's fault. I mean, she was GRIEVING for her companion".

    P.P.S I think that some Phantoms are good, some are bad.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh, I'm nightmaresnake if you wanna buddy me

    ReplyDelete
  48. But how could Liza be evil if she is trying to get the phantoms out of Jamaa?

    ReplyDelete
  49. And also, how could the phantoms be traveling through The Lost Temple of Zios? OHHHHHH. Thats where the name "Zios" comes from. Mira's husband I guess.....
