The story beginning in ancient time. Fourteen years old Tammauz is an orphan who does not know he is a demi god, he accidentally came across an elderly god who have gone mad, in his old age, this god is the King of the toads and taught him how to harness the power of the toads.
Later, Tammauz accidentally came across a family, that is to be attacked by a powerful but evil witch. The evil witch Morgan is a former student of the goddess Asherah, but was expelled due to her bad character, she come to seek revenge on her former lover, who abandon her and married another. But when things were most dangerous, the god of light Lucifer, his wife the goddess of the poor Ru'an, led a group of good witches and wizards to fight Morgan, they were able to save the life of the family's two children, but not the husband and wife, for it is their bad karma, of betrayal, that turn Morgan to evil.
Lucifer accidentally came across Tammauz and realized Tammauz is the son of his brother and decided to bring him back home, prepare him, so one day Tammauz can also become a god. But Tammauz's father is not a good god and every time, Ru'an see Tammauz it reminded her of his father, fearing if Tammauz become a god, he would be an evil god, Ru'an only teach Tammauz ideals in regards to ethic, but won't teach him anything else. Tammauz though Ru'an is prejudice towards him and he was bullied by other students of Ru'an, one day Tammauz lost his temper and used the toad power the elderly god taught him to injured the bullies.
Not sure what to do next, Lucifer send him to Mount Olympus, to study in the school created by the high god Elyon, also known as Zeus by the ancient Greeks. By this stage Elyon has passed away for over a thousand years, the school is operated by his seven former top students, who has now also become gods.
The god Yahweh, believe gods are a superior race, thus, it is the right of gods to rule over men and force men to be subject to their will or suffer persecution, something the other gods does not agree with. When the issue of the Roman Empire got worse, Yahweh, provide support to General Constantine, promising to make him the Emperor of all Rome and Europe, if he is willing to bow down to Yahweh and all those under his rule must bow to Yahweh's will, in exchange Constantine need to answer to nobody other than Yahweh, himself. After Constantine agreed, Yahweh, help Constantine seized control of all of Rome and Europe and instructed Constantine to create a church to honour Yahweh and execute any person who refuse to follow and destroy anything that is not of his will.
The angel Ishtar live in a cave at the bottom of Mount Olympus. Ishtar is only sixteen years old, she is a student of the high goddess Asherah, who passed away two years ago,
Ishtar already got the reputation of been the most beautiful woman in the world, but few people ever seen her for real, for she rarely leaves her cave. Knowing about Ishtar's beauty, Yahweh send his General the arch angel Michael, with fifty angels, to try force Ishtar to leave her home, to come to Yahweh and become Yahweh's mistress, When Ishtar, refused, Michael and his angels send a giant flood to destroy the living been on earth. Furious Ishtar send a swamp of killer bees to attack the angels, Ishtar prove to be a much more powerful angel, then the angels of Yahweh. Many of Michael's fifty angels was killed by Ishtar, Michael and his remaining angels, barely escaped with their life.
Gabriel is a senior student studying on Elyon's school on the top of Mount Olympus, he was assigned to be Tammauz's master. But, Gabriel himself is corrupted, he trained for many years, hoping to become a god, but is only be able to gone from been a mortal, to become a wizard, but is not able to gone from been a wizard, to an angel and finally a god. Thus, he is jealous of Tammauz to be the son of a god and give him a hard time, not only won't Gabriel teach Tammauz anything, but frequently abuse him and allow bullies to beat up Tammauz on a daily basis. One day, in face of another abusive threat from Gabriel, Tammauz escaped. When Gabriel was chasing after Tammauz, he was saved by an Ishtar, when he accidentally trespassed into her garden.
Ishtar drove Gabriel away and since then fourteen years old Tammauz, became sixteen years old Ishtar's student.
Cukaletuda is a student in the school of Elyon and ever since he saw Ishtar fighting the angels of Michael that day, his heart lusted for Ishtar. Cukaletuda's father is the monster Minotaur, thus by birth Cukaletuda a sense of brutality that is difficult to control, by birth. Fearing the result of this brutality, since he was a baby, his mother left Cukaletuda at the school of Elyon, but by been the student of the gods in this school, Cukaletuda learned how to manage this dark side of his personality since a young age.
One night five years later, Morgan the expel student of Asherah try to get her hand on the last scroll of her late master, by returning to the cave of Ishtar, because without it, Morgan can never go from been an angel, to becoming a god. But before Asherah passed away, she instructed Ishtar never to give the scroll to Morgan.
Ishtar and Tammauz fought against a way more powerful Morgan, to defend the scroll and barely escaped with their life.
Gabriel jealous of Cukaletuda for been teacher's pet, managed to slip a potion into his drink. It would make Cukaletuda not able to control his brutal side, for three days and three night. Fearing what he would do, after realizing what happened, Cukaletuda escaped into the jungle and sealed himself within the river for three days and three nights, till the power of the potion worn off. Not knowing about this, Tammauz and Ishtar also came to this river. Tammauz rested a seriously injured Ishtar by the river and below a tree while he went to search for medicine, to cure her of the injury, she got from Morgan.
By this stage, Cukaletuda has lost the last of his sanity. So, when Cukaletuda saw Ishtar lying there helplessly, half unconscious and along, Cukaletuda raped Ishtar. When Ishtar woke up, she thought it was Tammauz, but Ishtar also got romantic feeling for Tammauz, so decided to forgive him and told him that she is willing to be his wife. Tammauz was completely confused by this out of the blue situation, feeling hurt and betrayed Ishtar flew away vow to never return to Mount Olympus.
Tammauz spend the next three years searching for Ishtar and accidentally came across Lucifer and Ru'an who have decided to come down to earth, to help men to defend against Yahweh, Michael and Constantine, after seen the level of tyranny conducted by the Catholic Church. Lucifer might be a god, but even one god along, is no match against an entire army of angels and most of the other gods, are not interest in getting involve, because it is not their war. So, Lucifer try gather all the witches and wizards, in the land to form an alliance, to lead men to defend against the advancing army of Yahweh and Constantine.
To decide who should lead the alliance, Lucifer propose for a competition, to see which witch or wizard is the most powerful, thus the King of the alliance. Constantine who is now also a powerful angel and pope of the Catholic church, come for the challenge, with his students, wanting to be the King of the alliance. But because Constantine is now an angel, none of the wizard or witches were a match against him and Lucifer as the host of the competition cannot get involve, Ru'an was pregnant and cannot fight. In this time, Tammauz who has also become an angel stood up to the challenge and won the first three round of the tournament. Ishtar who heard of the tournament and came here, accidentally saw what was happening and fought the last match and defeated Constantine.
Lucifer love Tammauz like a son and hope to marry his daughter to Tammauz. Tammauz said no and insist he would only take Ishtar to be his bride. Lucifer love Tammauz like a son, but felt what Tammauz and Ishtar is doing is inappropriate, due to their teacher and student relationship, he tried to persuade Tammauz out of it. But Tammauz won't listen. Sadden by Lucifer's unwilling to accept them, Ishtar left in the middle of night and passed away, only to be found by an elderly old angel name Uriel and brought back to life. Uriel touched by Ishtar's beauty, persuade Ishtar to marry him instead. Ishtar accepted.
Tammauz once again spend the next ten years searching for Ishtar and in the same time, he searches for his father's killer, When Tammauz found out it is Lucifer who killed his father, Tammauz was furious and wanted to seek revenge upon Lucifer, he accidentally came across arch angel Michael and Emperor Constantine, who got invite to Uriel's wedding. Uriel, is also one of the arch angels of Yahweh, he and his men sworn allegiance to Yahweh, in exchange for power and status. Knowing about how Tammauz now desire to kill Lucifer, Michael hopes to recruit Tammauz to become one of Yahweh's arch angels, seen how talented Tammauz is.
Tammauz accepted Michael and Constantine's invitation to join them, to attend Uriel's wedding. When seen Ishtar for the first time three days before Ishtar's wedding, Tammauz is shocked to find the bride is Ishtar. When Tammauz confronted her, Ishtar insisted that Tammauz got the wrong person and she is not Ishtar, but her name is Inanna, who just happen to look similar to Ishtar. Cannot get over Ishtar refusing to acknowledge him, on the day of Ishtar's wedding, Tammauz tried to committed suicide, but was quickly stopped by Michael and Constantine. After hearing about Tammauz's suicide attempt, Ishtar finally agree to acknowledge him. Uriel was furious and refuse to let Tammauz and Ishtar to leave his valley. Michael and Constantine tried to help Tammauz and Ishtar to escape and got Uriel to agree to a dual of Uriel vs Tammauz and Ishtar and if Ishtar and Tammauz won, Uriel would let them leave. Uriel lost the dual, but not willing to give up, pushed Tammauz into a flower bed full of poison flowers that can be grow only within the valley, not willing to live without Tammauz, Ishtar followed Tammauz and jump into the bed of poison flowers.
During the same time, Michael and Constantine, found Uriel's previous wife is still alive, but after she got old, Uriel tricked her and trapped her at the bottom of a well, so he can remarry. Uriel's wife Suruel, is a more powerful angel. Once she was released from the well, she tried to kill Uriel. Uriel barely escaped with his life. Suruel says she would only give Tammauz cure to the poison flowers, if he kills Lucifer, who sealed her and Uriel in this valley one thousand years ago, after she and Uriel, killed thousands of innocent people by making a volcano explode, because those people refuse to be their slaves. Tammauz blinded by the rage of how Lucifer killed his father, quickly accepted.
Tammauz went to central Asia. Here Lucifer is leading an army of humans and a handful of angels, witches and wizards, to hold up a defensive position against the army of Yahweh. Because eager to be able to create a vast army of angels within a short period of time, Yahweh damaged himself by letting many who are not ready to be angels, to become angels. These unnature angels can stay as angels, through the power of Yahweh only and unless Yahweh finally conquer the entire world, every time these unnature angels do something, it drains Yahweh's life source. Lucifer know as long as his army is able to hold out against Yahweh's army here, eventually, Yahweh would have no choice but to retreat, otherwise, these unnature angels, would drain his life source dry and unless he can conquer the world, Yahweh's angel can stay as angels for no more than one thousand years. Thus, all Lucifer need to do is keep up defensive position, until Yahweh's forces crumble.
But even so, Yahweh's army is so large in size, with so many wizards, witches and angels, Lucifer's significantly smaller army, compose mostly of mortals, with only a handful of angels and wizards and witches, won't be able to hold out against Yahweh's army, if it isn't because they got the god Lucifer and the goddess Ru'an on their side and even then, it is a major struggle. Tammauz and Ishtar came to central Asia, intending to kill Lucifer. But after seen the type of dangerous Lucifer is putting himself in, to benefit mankind, despite it is not his war, Tammauz cannot help feel ashamed, of how he bitter over personal issue right now, so now Tammauz and Ishtar, choice to help Lucifer to defend central Asia. When the angels of Yahweh almost killed Lucifer, Tammauz even saved Lucifer’s life. During this time, Tammauz learned the truth about his father that originally Lucifer, Yahweh and Tammauz's father Remiel are brothers, but after going insane, Remiel sucked a giant meteorite into earth intend to destroy all life. Lucifer sealed Remiel away, hoping to cure him of his insanity, but was too late to stop the meteorite that destroy the dinosaurs. Then, Remiel escape, still not cure from his insanity, Remiel intend to destroy life on earth again, with a second meteorite. Without a choice, Lucifer killed Remiel.
Two of Lucifer's students who are both in love with Lucifer's daughter, Lily, started fighting over her, to prevent them from killing each other, Tammauz lied to the two of them, saying Lucifer has already agree to marry Lily to him. When Lily heard of the news, she thought Tammauz insulted her honour and when he was sleeping at night, chopped off his right arm. Tammauz escaped, but fainted after losing too much blood, when he woke up Tammauz realized he is no longer on earth, he was rescued by a giant bold headed eagle. The eagle is the god of agriculture, looking for somebody to take his place, so he can retire and picked Tammauz. With the care and training of the eagle, Tammauz slowly recover from his injury and even became a god.
Cukaletuda led a group of wizards from Mount Olympus to come reinforce Lucifer. One night Ishtar overheard an argument between Cukaletuda and Gabriel. Gabriel tried to blackmail Cukaletuda, by letting people know it is he, who raped Ishtar that night. Ishtar accidentally overheard the conversation, furiously, she wanted to kill Cukaletuda. Cukaletuda escape, all the way back to Mount Olympus. When the seven gods of the school of Elyon went to heaven, the school split into two camps. Gabriel and his student, sided with Yahweh and become the unnature angels of Yahweh. The rest of the students followed Cukaletuda. Gabriel and his students, with reinforcement from Yahweh’s army, tried to force the school to become subject to Yahweh and a great battle took place between the two camps. During this same time, Ishtar also arrived at Mount Olympus and found Cukaleuda and wanted to kill him. Gabriel and his men stood back and let Ishtar fight Cukaleuda and those who is in his camp and after they finish fighting, Gabriel and his men would kill the survivor. But eventually, Ishtar found it in her, to forgive Cukaleuda for what happened, after knowing he was under Gabriel’s spell. Michael found tried to attack and kill Ishtar from behind. Cukaleda used his body as a human shield to block Michael's sword and died in the process.
At this time, the seven gods who run the school return and saw a dead Cukaleda. Not knowing Cukaleda once raped Ishtar and thinking it is Ishtar who killed Cukaleda, they turned their attack upon Ishtar. The giant eagle allows Tammauz to return to earth, By the time Tammauz came to rescue Ishtar, she is already seriously wounded by the seven gods. Tammauz and Ishtar got married in front of the statue of Elyon. Feeling he seen enough of this none sense, the brother of Elyon, who is also a high god came down to earth and killed Gabriel and all other angels of Yahweh, upon Mount Olympus. Constantine and Michael and a small handful of angels managed to escape. Elyon's brother, is a god, who is well over five thousand years old, but his craft is to be ageless and he still look like a boy and at time, he can be kind of childish. Elyon's brother told the students upon Mount Olympus saying all of Europe would soon be under the complete rule of Yahweh and instruct them to move east to Asia.
Tammauz used his god power to heal Ishtar from the injury she sustained from the seven gods, but as a low-level god, after healing Ishtar, the poison, from the poison flower, started taking a hold on Tammauz again.
Ru'an know that Ishtar is seriously wounded, founded Tammauz and Ishtar within their cave, both of them are close to dying, from the poison of the poison flower. Ru'an went to the valley with a few angels, wizards and witches that can be spare, to demand for Suruel, to hand over the cure for the poison flower. Suruel refused, so, Ru'an used her power to suck Uriel back into the valley, once they met, Uriel and Suruel started fighting each other until they killed each other. Ru'an found the last cure for the poison flower and gave it to Ishtar, but after opening the box of cure, it found there is only one pill for male, the female pill is missing. Ishtar wanted Tammauz to survive and eat the pill, but angrily Tammauz destroyed the pill, planning not to survive, without Ishtar.
Later that night, Ru'an told Ishtar, now that she saw the original, she can replicate it, but there is no way Tammauz would take the pill and wanted Ishtar to help think of a way.
Ishtar knows she can't survive for long, left a poem upon a stone wall saying they should meet again in one thousand years and jump into a giant pit that would trap anybody who enter, within the pit forever, to kill herself. The next day when Tammauz saw it, he demanded an answer, Ru'an lied to Tammauz saying this is a sign that the goddess Venus, has taken Ishtar to take care of her and she would return in one thousand years. So, Tammauz finally took the pill and recover from the poison.
One thousand years passed and Tammauz is now a very powerful god that watch over men kind, as the god of agriculture. He returned to the stone where the poem was written and waited for three years, but didn't saw Ishtar returning. Out of sadness, when Tammauz saw the same pit Ishtar jumped into, he also jumped down the pit, to kill himself. To his surprise, Ishtar is still alive down there. The waters within this pit, is the water of life and it cure Ishtar of the poison flowers and after one thousand years, Ishtar is now, also a goddess. Together, Ishtar and Tammauz destroyed the seal upon the pit and flew out of the pit and back into the world and return to central Asia.
By this time, Lucifer and his men has also been holding out against Yahweh's army for one thousand years. The scare of this long war, can be seen upon the face of every soldier, desperate, Yahweh took command of the army himself, but at this stage, Lucifer's defence line was about to be overrun by Yahweh's men. During this time, Tammauz and Ishtar suddenly appear, now as extremely powerful gods, they aided in defeating Yahweh's army. With the help of Ishtar and Tammauz the tied of the battle started turning in their favour, Lucifer. thus, led his army to charge against Yahweh's forces. On the spot, Tammauz killed the arch angel Michael. Constantine came to a realization in the last minute, used the last of his life source, to save the people of central Asia, before passing away, Yahweh was seriously injured and escaped.
Just as Lucifer predicted, Yahweh's unnature angels lost their power and turned back into mortals again. Yahweh, now lost his army, went into hiding. After spending over one thousand years in the dark ages, Lucifer and Ru'an now aim to guide men to fix the western world, first by creating churches independent from the Catholic Church created by Constantine and push for religion reform, then, from the land of the far east, the land of the golden dragons with nine heads and ten horns, bringing in new idea via sea, to help create a new generation of Europeans, which will then change how the western world think, thus bring upon a new era of peace, humanity and age of enlightenment that has not been seen in the western world, since the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the rule of Yahweh, which leads to the dark ages, inquisition, crusades and the black plague.
Lucifer asked Tammauz and Ishtar to stay and help. But Tammauz and Ishtar believe Lucifer is able to handle it on their own and retire from the world.
Because Tammauz is black, as revenge for what Tammauz did Yahweh and his two remaining arch angels used whatever power they still have in the west, to get Europeans to capture stone age Africans and use them as slaves and to make sure France the origin place of the Age of Enlightenment cannot have a day of peace. But three hundred years later, two new gods emerged, a male god, would reincarnated into the world and led the Americans to defeat the pro slavery South, the other one would be the goddess Liberta, who watch over America and Europe for the next two hundred years, through two statues known as the statue of Liberty, until what is left of Yahweh's power, is completely gone. The two gods are the goddess Liberta and her husband, but little does people know, Liberta is the daughter of Ishtar and Tammauz
The story try to get a cast that is as multi-racial, as it can find, based on the idea, because the gods are not bound by geography, they must all be of different race, although try to find a fully multi-racial cast, isn’t that easy, and most actors I found is still white.

Mythology and historical reference
The god of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is known as Yahweh in pre-Christian pagan mythology.
Evidence suggest, in early mythology Yahweh is known as a warrior god, who serve Elyon, the King of the gods. Later people of Israel, believe Yahweh is the one and only true god, based on the idea of only Yahweh to be the one and true god, the credit of all other gods, is given to Yahweh, for example, according to originally mythology, it is the goddess Ishtar who used the mud by the red sea to create the first human, but in Christian mythology, that credit is given to Yahweh.
Yahweh is known be on bad terms with other god, he got the political view of "You are either with me or against me", as a result, declare all other gods to be his enemy, the word "Satan" in ancient Babylonia originally meant "challenger" and "against" and was used to refer to all gods other than Yahweh, later base on the idea all gods other than Yahweh are false gods and demons pretending to be gods, in later Jew and Christian mythology, all other gods merged together into a single demon name Satan. Amount them also include Lucifer, the god of light, which become known as the fallen angel that rebel against god. Horus the god of the sun, one of the most widely worship gods, the Christian would combine his myth, with the story of Roman Emperor Tiberius' visit to Israel and the prophecy that a man name Jesus would lead the Jews to victory and become known as the Jesus of the bible, later the Catholic church would also put words into Jesus' mouth, making him the son of Yahweh and enforcing certain agenda of the then corrupted Catholic Church, these words the Catholic Church put in Jesus' mouth can also be found in the bible.
Ishtar is one of the most ancient goddess of human history, it is most likely Ishtar is one of the original gods of human prior to leaving Africa and when the first human left Africa, they also bring their mythology along with them, thus despite having difference in name and some minor difference in terms of appearance and mythology, Ishtar is a goddess that can be found been worshiped all over the world, early Jews, prior to combining all other gods into a single demon name Satan, refer to Ishtar as Lilith, the demon goddess, which cause women to have miscarriage, ironically, Ishtar is the goddess of love and fertility.
After combining all story of Ishtar from each culture in the world together, it paints a story that says, Yahweh was originally in love with Ishtar and wanted Ishtar to marry him. But Yahweh is cruel and abusive, so Ishtar rejected his pursue. Ishtar went to live by the sea and married Tammauz the god of agriculture and there Ishtar used the mud to create the first dogs, pigs, horses, birds and human. But an angry and jealous Yahweh, demand for Ishtar to be his bride or he would flood the earth, Ishtar refuse, so, Yahweh send a giant flood, upon the earth, accusing the creation of Ishtar to be evil and send seven of his most powerful angels to hunt down those who survive. Ishtar killed the seven angels, Ishtar is extremely beautiful, she seduced the angels with her lust and sucked dry their life source, during their love making, thus killing the angels. Then Ishtar, used the life source of the seven angels to create a magic rock and used that to stop the flood water of Yahweh.
Return of the Condor Heroes, is a Chinese novel written soon after WW2, it told the love story of Yang Guo and his master Dragon girl, who is only two years older than him, but despite they are the same age, people still frown upon their love story, because they began as teacher and students. The story backdrop is set against the height of the war between the Mongolia Empire and China.
Because the author of Return of the Condor Hero is still alive and to a great extend this movie idea is base on his novel, there is a need to get permission from the original author, whether it is to make a movie base on his original work or to create a new story that combine his work with ancient mythologies.
