My legend will be remembered,
Too strong to be dismembered.
No happiness at the parting,
What happened at the starting?
All the lines or all we do,
Mix God, religion, and the facts too.
Counting now, what are we at?
Profound, noises, or like a cat?
My land is one full of life,
You know my cousins, little strife.
Started with two, but grew to three,
But with some help, who can I be?
Each line references something different.
Is a very similar format to another one of my recent riddles.
Thinking of the comment on Marek's answer, it might be more accurate to say normal human beings can be dismembered (but remember hint 1).
What color do we often associate with life? What land/country is often associated with that color?
The answer is not an actor.
