The Lord of Chaos is the creator and god of the demon race trapped in Tartarus, more commonly known as hell.


Up until at least 1218 AD, Chaos was believed to be the precursor god born from Primeval Chaos.[1] [2] However in 1242 AD, it is revealed that the Seven rose to power with a help of an 8th God or entity, who plots to overtake them and their worshipers. This very entity is hinted to be Lord of Chaos himself.[3] After the Seven rose to power, he created the first intelligent race: demons. The cunning, arrogant and Source hungry beings who bickered amongst themselves and served him as his slaves.

When the Seven Gods created their own races, Chaos and his legion waged war against them until finally, the Seven left the mortal plane, dragging Chaos and his minions to the plane between the Hall of Echoes and Rivellon.

Trapped between the realm of the living and the dead, Chaos created the dimension known as hell, where all demons and damned souls now reside for eternity. He himself has continued to influence the mortal races from his cage, encouraging war and spreading chaos as a means to open a doorway for himself back to Rivellon. There are two known occasions where Chaos physically or spiritually returned to Rivellon:

  • 100AD: Chaos, summoned as a largely powerless phantom, fought against the armies of Rivellon and was eventually driven back solely by the dwarves.
  • 611AD: Summoned by the League of the Damned, in his physical form he appeared as if made out of shadows and was 12 feet tall and strong as a dozen of the hardiest warriors. He led the largely successful charge against the seven races, besieging them in Stormfist Castle. The Council of Seven sacrificed themselves through a divine ritual on the battlefield in order to banish him.[4]

Although he has yet to return to Rivellon, the Sword of Lies remained on the mortal plane, containing an element of his soul to ensure a third return. Taken from the battlefield by Ralph , Chaos took control of the battlemage's body. However, the sword and Ralph were forcibly sealed within the inescapable vault below Stormfist. As a result Chaos' return on this occassion was short-lived, dying with Ralph's body as it died from hunger and dehydration.

The Sword itself was recovered in 1218 AD by Duke Janus Ferol and from here the Black Ring attempted to implant their God's soul, through a dark ritual into a young babe, later named Damian by Lucian, after thwarting the Ring's plan.

As the ritual itself failed, Chaos was unable to possess Damian, however his power and evil still resided within the child.
