In Gaia’s quest to protect herself of the inhabitants and the creation of her guardians she had erred. With the necessity of shifting the planar balance of Ether into the her children, she did too cause the alignment of Maelstrom to momentarily pass through her material world. The plane of chaos in its short time of being corterminious with Gaia had only made a small tear in the material existence. As centuries went by the small tear became a great rift, which drew the curious mortal races to its reach. Unfortunately for those who came to close, the chaotic energies wracked their mind and bodies until they became twisted effigies of chaos and destruction. Gaia’s guardian children became demons bent on malevolence and carnage.
