(Rather than fact, these are the beliefes of Saphriel's people)
It was over five hundred thousand years ago that the God Demosto, and the universe that he created in his wake came to be. The depiction that man had created for this god was that he resembled, a mighty and all powerful male figure with long flowing robes that seemed to sparkle with the brightness of the stars themselves. It was said that as he drifted through the darkness which was to become the universe, countless galaxies and stars materialized behind him, seemingly forming from nothing as he moved through the never ending darkness, lighting the path behind him.
After many millennia of creation, Demosto came to rest upon a barren world that he had created. This world is where he soon begat his sons, each of them made from a piece of himself. His first son was Kinos, the God of Earth and Sea. The second son was Aderoth, the God of Purity and Healing. Then came the third son, Behmos the God of Darkness and Sin. Lastly came Udero, his final son who was the God of Balance and Order. Udero was tasked to keep the three brothers in check. Demosto, after creating his sons, then returned to the cosmos once more to observe his creation from afar.
The four siblings came together on this wasteland and with haste begat sons of their own. Kinos created from himself, the God Of The Hunt, Pereties. Aderoth created from himself the God of Magic, Bothimir. Finally from Behmos was the creation of the God of War, Uldir. However Udero refused to create an offspring of his own for he believed that this would upset the balance of power. Out of fear of greater unbalance, Udero banned the gods from creating any more children of their own. Since then no other godly beings have been created, as far as anyone may know.
Working together with their sons, the gods created the planet that would become known as Haraveth. Kinos, looked upon the barren wasteland and lifted his hand, seemingly pulling the oceans and trees from the ground and creating life for this once empty plain. Once the planet was given the resources to provide other life, Kinos would then create the lesser beings and creatures to inhabit the world from animals that in time would be lowly livestock creatures, to the animals which would prey upon the lowly ones. Working together with all of the Gods, Kinos soon created what would be the first race and inhabitants of Haraveth. The beings which were created were known as the Frol, though in present times they only seem to be referred to as “ancients” for their true name had been lost in history.
The ancients were by far a powerful and mighty race, for the Gods gifted them magic potential, awe-inspiring strength, unmatched power, and highly deceptive. These beings lived on Haraveth for thousands of years, creating an elaborate civilization under the watchful eyes of their creators. They crafted with magic itself, creating legendary tools, weapons, and started the construction of the many magicals relics and artifacts known today. However in time the ancients began to grow selfish, arrogant, and defied the Gods as they thought themselves better than the ones who had created their race, believing that they become the superior creations of the universe. This was the point in which the Frol then decided to rebel against the Gods, and dared to steal the power of their Gods’.
The response the Gods would have to this uprising was impetuous and haste as the ignorance of the Frol became their downfall when they were unaware that the Gods would soon destroy the creations they had watched grow. The Frol would soon find the Gods descending from the heavens, and appearing the realms they had been residing within for thousands of years as they hunted down every ancient that had defied the Gods, effectively committing mass genocide and wiping the Frol from the face of the world.
Nearly two thousand years would pass before the Gods decided that they would attempt creation again, though this time they created a variety of races that would have been much weaker than the ancients, for there had been a fear that if they were to create another powerful race such as the Frol, they too would become corrupt and try rebelling against their creators. Kinos, from the ashes of Haraveth created the six mortal races. The Humans, who were strong and smart. The Elves, who were graceful and light. The Dwarves, who were stout and tough. The orcs, who were tall and mighty. The goblins, who were small and sneaky. Finally the creation of the Trolls, who were giant and powerful. Though, in recent years more beings have come to light. Bringing to question if all they know is as true as it is. Word of fish folk and cat like creatures over seas. Are these creations of the gods as well? Or something more?
