Backstory In the beginning what we know as our world was empty and desolate. In this hollow universe there existed one being... the God of Chaos, Discord. No one can explain how Discord appeared, he simply came to be. At first the god was satisfied with the bleak world, however he soon found he hungered for company and so he reached inside himself and gripped the small dainty hand of another and pulled her from within. With that, the Goddess of Order was born, the two look at one another curiously until the Lady god stood and then smiled at him. The two became friends and with Order to balance out the world he found he was satisfied. Order however, looked upon the darkness with contempt, she wished for more and so she confronted Chaos on the matter of what would become of the world that she viewed as mortals would see a blank canvas. Discord, wanting to please the woman whom he cherished, agreed to this request. He used his powers to create and bring their concept into reality, while Order sculpted what he placed, refining it and then ensuring that all that was created had it's place in the world. After laying mortal man on the earth, with his whims and ideals, as well as the other races that they had worked so hard to craft, Order became content, and she watched her precious children with great care. To a god, it wasnt long before the mortals began to favor Order over Discord, they feared him, but eventually that fear turned to indifference and as time went by Discord was slowly but surerly forgotten. Due to this, as well as Order and her tendency to focus her energies on her mortals, he chose to plunge himself into a long restful and much deserved slumber, as the world clearly doesnt desire him. Order begged and pleaded with him however he could not be detoured and so in bitter acceptance she requested one last thing, that the two of them could forge another race; the Dragons... these powerful beast were the final creation between the two gods, made powerful in tribute to him. Discord quickly went to sleep, the labor of creation had tired him, and in doing so he left Order alone, there was suffering in her heart and she grieved for days on end before devoting herself conpletely to the mortals. She came to earth on whims in order to escape the sleeping chamber in which Discord rested, when it was needed the dragons would act as her soldiers for they had been given the most power, it was in the respect of Discord that she had made the dragons superior, telling them that their existence and power was because of an old and forgotten being. But it would so happen that Discords power wasn't simply sleeping, as he slept his power eventually leaked out and created its own pocket dimmension existing next to the world of Order. Mages, sages and scholars called it the force for Chaos and two great misfortunes passed due to this chaotic power. The first tragedy was when for just a moment, a portal to the realm of chaos was opened and the entire country in which the portal rested was plunged into devistation, the once lush land was purged of it beauty and filled with mutation and corruption, houses became made of flesh and gained life and even the smallest of creatures became large beasts. The humans who had lived became a foul fusion of man and beast. The second tragedy was known as the "Plauge of the Damned", a disease which made the dead rise from their graves, however this was minor in comparison to the true danger that had now appeared, and made itself known... parts of Discords subconcious had come alive within the realm of Chaos, embodying themselves and labelling themselves as the Chaos Gods. Now the world is under seige, a war between Order and Chaos has begun to brew, and by the looks of it Order is already losing, her children turn against her; the entirety of the north have given themselves to these dark gods. Now Order herself has grown tired of simply watching the slaughter from above and has descended into the world, going to seek out her chosen four to help her fight against the coming war against the self-titled Chaos Gods...
