The world of Bastion was created long before the reckoning of mortal races by the Creator. She Who Called made the Angels of the Heavens, and set them to rule over the world, known then as Gaia. In time, the spirit of the world became aware, and for a time, all was good. The Creator, Her daughter, Gaia, and the angels who served them lived in peace and happiness.
One day, as the story is told, the Creator came to her daughter, bleeding from a terrible wound. No one knows what caused this mortal injury, but the Creator died in her daughter’s arms. From her blood, the first daemons arose. The Daemonic forces warred with the angels, who took charge of Creation after the Creator fell.
