There are many lore of how this world came to be, but the most common, is that of The Creator. The legend goes that the Creator was born with the universe, there are still many debates on how the Creator and universe came to be, but no one can seem to explain it. The universe at that time was very empty and the Creator began to create worlds, each one more different then the last. A few planets there, a sun and moon there, small stuff, but as the Creator expanded his world, the darkness began to gather, and thus, Caius was born from the darkness. He rivaled the Creator in power and soon began to destroy the work that the Creator had done. The Creator fought Caius, and the battle raged for years, and due to there power being equaling match, the battle would never end. Soon the universe itself began to unravel from the constant power of the two Gods. The Creator realized this and tried to reason with Caius but Caius just took advantage of the Creator's good will and wounded the Creator, but as Caius stood over the Creator, gloating at his victory and preparing to take the killing blow, the Creator gathered what power he could and Caius was seal in a different dimension. The universe slowed repaired the damage that was done and the life on the planets that survived the battle grew.
Caius raged in his own dimension for thousands of years and like the Creator, he design his own worlds but ones that didn't bring life, and made from light but world twisted, and decaying planets that were surround by the darkness. Caius had tried for many times to break through the barrier that the Creator had made to prevent him from returning but it seemed he was forever trapped there in till gateways began to appear and would open between the worlds, each time a different place and at random intervals. But this made Caius plot and soon he had sorcerers who study the gateways, and even though Caius was still bound to his own dimension , and soon they were able to create there own gateways. Caius's advance on the Creator's world, and the Creator, being eternally wounded, could do nothing to stop it from happening.
Regulus was the planet's name, and it had the misfortune to being the closest of being between the two dimensions, and thus Caius's army's appeared there through the gateways and began destroying those that inhabit the planet. The planet Regulus had many different species of life and it would take the lifetime of the Creator to write them all down but that didn't matter to the army that swept across the land. Many of the people banded together, but their power wasn't enough, and the Creator saw this and by uses the last of his power, he split himself into six magical objects, each one representing each element that weaken the dark ones power in his universe and created a barrier that stopped them from being able to use the gates to enter the world. This was a millennium ago and the power of the barriers began to weaken, and many believe that the if the begin the objects together and make the Creator whole again, that maybe Caius can finally be defeated.
