Gods: The War

While the lives of mortals may see may wars, to the gods these are just children fighting on the playground. To the gods, there has only been one war. The War is when Chaos and Terra vied for control and power, and when they battled all of creation trembled at their power. This conflict divided the very heavens, and the goods took sides for which of these two forces they would support. According to legend, The War lasted longer than mortals can possibly understand.

A single battle could last longer than the entire life of a mortal. Some say that a single battle lasted longer than the entire existence of mortals when added together. Since mortals existed during The War this is dismissed as nonsense by most, but some still hold it as truth. They say that mortals were actually created by the gods as pawns and minions to be used in The War, though the difference in power levels between gods and mortals makes this unlikely.

As the insanity of The War raged on, Knell viewed the gods and how their conflict upset the order of the world. She understood that as long as the gods suffered no consequences that this war would never end. While Knell took no sides in the war, for she did not care who won and who lost, she decided that they must suffer consequences for their actions. With that in mind, the Final Judge set up a special realm in the afterlife to hold even a god. Then for the first time the gods experienced something they had never known before: Death.

Sol championed the cause of Terra and led as her general. Leviathan stood behind Chaos and served as his general. Along the course of The War the two saw countless battles. While Sol had unbridled power and skill as a warrior, Leviathan held the advantage in strategies and tactics. Both won their fair share of battles, and for most of the war neither could be claimed as the other's better. As The War neared its end things took a dramatic change.

Leviathan launched a brilliant offensive that crushed the forces of Terra. Victory was in his grasp, and Leviathan stood over the defeated Sol prepared to finish him. Then, at the last moment, Azure arrived seemingly out of nowhere and defeated Leviathan. Prior to this conflict, Azure had attempted to stay out of the conflict. He wanted nothing more than to see the conflict end and everything to go back to normal, but in the end he could only sit on the sidelines so long. His arrival onto the field of battle changed the course of The War.

While Azure lacked the power of Sol, he was still more powerful than Leviathan, and what's more he could match the strategy and tactics of Leviathan with cunning and strategy of his own. No longer did Sol and Leviathan compete for position, but Azure could take on Leviathan and win consistently. The humiliation of these defeats would forever scar Leviathan and give him a burning hatred for Azure. What's more is that with Azure being able to defeat Leviathan without him, this freed up Sol to help Terra in the battle with Chaos.

Now, with the combined power of Terra and Sol against him, Chaos knew he could not win. With victory hopeless, Chaos decided that if he would not survive then no one else should either and did the unthinkable. He attacked the Tree of Life, the center of all creation, the roots of the world, the source of all life, birthplace of even the gods. His attack caused a bright light to emerge from the Tree of Life and consumed Chaos. Then, it spread and consumed everything in its path. In her last act Terra threw Sol from the area to keep him safe, and then she too was consumed by the light.

When the light finally vanished the Tree of Life was gone, as was almost all the land and even the world's water. Seeing what they had done the gods cried, all the gods except for Leviathan who sat back and pondered how he would one day take his revenge on Azure. For forty days and forty nights the gods cried at what The War had brought. When they stopped they saw that their tears filled the oceans and the seas and the rivers, and once again brought life to the lands of the world.

The gods looked across the lands, and saw so few of their creations had survived. Of all their once beloved races, only one survived in any number. Humans, who had lived on the outskirts of the world, would survive and rule what was left of the world. Azure would claim the Throne of the Gods, and his first act as king was to decree that the gods would no longer take an active role in the world as they once had. It was the gods that nearly destroyed the world, and he had no desire to see them finish what they started. Besides, he liked the mortals and had faith perhaps the humans could fix what the gods and broken.
