Now Adamilus had a son which was his firstborn, and he called his name Cain, a bright and cheerful child, filled with laughter and happy mischief; and as he grew into manhood, Cain became a great and noble teacher for which all men had regard; for he taught the skills of metal smithing and the mysteries of the forge.
See: Abel (Terralee), Adamilus, Evelah, Mahali, Terralee
Background: The name “Cain” is a shortened version of “Cainicus”. On every mortal world where dispensations are established, the first son of Adamilus and Evelah is always given the name Cainicus (Cain). There are two individuals named Cain in the Song of God: the Cain who lived on this earth (Beginnings 1-7), and the firstborn son of Adamilus on the world of Terralee (4th Endowment 8:5-20).
Summary: The first son of Adamilus and Evelah on the world of Terralee, Cain became a great master and teacher of metal smithing. Highly regarded by his family and all who knew him, Cain was known for his storytelling and laughter. With the guidance of his sister, Mahali, Cain built the first potter’s wheel. He also built an oven for her to use in her work with clay.
