History of Makai
The Birth of Makai
It is written in the "Makai Souseiki/Genesis of Makai" that Makai is the body of god itself. The "first lifeform" appeared through emptiness and it is the one who created Makai. It is written that all creatures and lifeforms of Makai are it's descendants.
It is also written that the reign of the nobles began 2,000,000 years ago. The ancestor of the Aensland family, The demon king Zeruru Aensland, is written to be the first emperor in these writings. All writings previous to this have been lost and no spells exist to seek the truth. There is a very high possibility that someone may have re-written history, but the truth is hidden within darkness.
The main land within Makai is called "Matairiku/The demon land". The earth is the color of blood, a never ending pitch black deep fault, forests move with eerie movements, cave's that are filled with poisonous miasma, poisonous marshes that would melt even the bones, and residents of darkness.
The area is several hundred times the area of all the continents of Earth. Including the sea which surrounds the land, it is impossible to determine the exact size of Makai. Not even the Emperor of Makai cannot know every corner of Makai.
And beyond the oceans that surround the land is a highly compressed atmospheric wall making it impossible to set foot beyond the limits. According to ancient writings, a crack in a dimension exists there which leads to another world. But no one has been able to prove this. In the center of Matairiku lies the Devil Mountains, which are 8,000km above the sea level. And within these mountains lies a waterfall called "Heaven to Hell" which reaches the depths of 3,000km. It would drag anyone who approaches it into it's depth of darkness.
The sea which lies to the east of Matairiku is called, "Daimakai/Great Sea of Evil". And the sea which lies to the west of Matairiku is called, "Daimasou/Great Ocean of Evil". The Daimakai is filled with flames at a temperature of 10,000 degrees Celsius. The Daimasou is filled with ice at absolute zero. At the point where these sea meet lies a crack that is 200km wide. It is filled with constant storms and lightning.
Several hundred trillion Makai creatures live in this world and each of them build up their own society and territories. A human would not even last a day in the harsh world of Makai.
The Gate, a distortion in space which connects the human world and Makai. This gate lies far above the volcano, Gilala Gila at the center of Makai. A black void, which twists any and every light and gravity. This black void opens and closes periodically in a two weeks cycle. When this void opens at its widest, the human world and Makai are physically connected and bound for only a few seconds. A tunnel, which connects the two worlds, is created.
This gate was first discovered roughly 2,000 years ago. The unusual change came without any warning. The fire blizzard, that Gilala Gila shoots out, had suddenly stopped. This flame had existed since the creation of Makai and burned anyone who came near the volcano. The current master of the Lepe clan(the Lord of the area around Gilala Gila), sent a servant to investigate the cause. When he heard that there had been some sort of trouble at the top of the volcano, he went there himself to investigate. Shortly after, he was swallowed by the stream. The news that the master of noble family had been swallowed by the gate spread across Makai quickly.
It created a new fear within Makai. Anyone who dared to go near the gate would be thrown into the an unknown dimension. The gate was feared as a bringer of death, and was also feared as death itself. It was decided by the political powers in Makai that the gate would be sealed. But the truth was, the nobles wanted to keep the gate and it's uses in secret. After the gate had been sealed, the gate had stayed quite and had been forgotten.
But the Makai nobles had kept researching the gate. They eventually found out that the gate was a contact point between Makai and another dimension called the human world. It was also confirmed that in the human world lied Maryoku, the source of life. And this Maryoku existed as evil souls within the human world.
They found out that the power that existed in the human world rivaled that of the three high nobles of Makai. Many observed each others movements towards the gate, which eventually led Makai into the age of a cold war. The tension that was caused by the cold war exploded when Galnan, one of the high nobles, died.
Nobles of Makai
The master of the Aensland family - The strongest man in Makai
Known as the demon king/devil, he is the true ruler of Makai. He stood higher than 200m, had four arms and four eye's(two eye's are on the palm of his hands). He is the guardian and parent of Morrigan of the succubus race.
Compared to others, he is treated special due to the fact that he has the strongest raw power within him. His power is comparable to several hundred thousand Makai beasts or is equal to several hundred A class Makai nobles like Demitri. his physical power is, in theory, the strongest.
His body is constantly covered with a thin barrier. This barrier can stand up to one million degrees Celsius. A normal Makai being would perish the moment they come into contact with it. He seals two out of his four arms to contain his power. In the past, he has unsealed all four of his arms. It was said that he killed 200 Makai nobles with a swing of his arm. He use's an attack called the "Scalephoton" which emits a highly compressed arrow of magic at a high speed at it's victims. This attack would even kill Galnan and Jedah if it were to hit them. He had used a low powered warning shot against Demitri 100 years ago.
Even though he had incredible power, he never showed any interest in ruling Makai. This didn't mean that he had no greed or ambition. To him, Makai was part of his body and his body itself. The thought of trying to rule his own hands and feet never came out. Even though no one doubted Belial's rule, the struggle for power within Makai had never ended.
When Belial had won victory over Demitri by ripping Demitri's castle and the gate into human world. But damaging space itself had also damaged Belial's body. His powers had slowly started to diminish. But everyone, who had enough power to take advantage of this situation, like Jedah and Galnan had already died. There existed no one in Makai who could threaten his rule.(Ozom had proclaimed himself as the emperor of Makai but his powers were far below Belial's).
When Belial's powers are completely diminished, the very balance of Makai would fall apart.
The master of the Voshtal family - The brain of Makai, The Spirit Lord
He is the oldest of the three high nobles.(He died at the age of 32,000). He has the best information network in Makai by using demon beasts. He had been the master of the Voshtal family for more than 20,000 years.
At one point, he also had as much power as Belial. His personality is the opposite of Belial's and is cruel and offensive. He had a special ability which allowed him to summon demon beasts from a world called "Inkai". This Inkai lied even further below the world of Makai. The demon beasts had very low intellect, and controlling them would require a great amount of power. Galnan, on the other hand, could directly control the nervous system of these creatures and could control them with little power. Compared to the other two high nobles, he was quite a bit older. His dominant position slowly started to diminish along with his powers. His raw powers itself were no match for the other two.
But his special summoning abilities was useful for his information network. This led to his image change from a "Tyrant" to the "Brain of Makai". While he had been the master of his family for 20,000 years, he had gathered vast amounts of information into his castle. Every action that political powers took would be seen by Galnan. This had caused the political powers to be careful with their movements. Galnan had also known about the gate which held off any movements towards it by any nobles. Even Jedah and Belial. Galnan, although unexpected, had become the "Guard of Makai".
After the death of Galnan, the powers of the Voshtal family diminished and the role of the Guard has also disappeared. This was the reason why the people of Makai started to struggle for power after his death.
