"In an age before man and dragons, when the age of darkness engulfed the world, these creatures ruled as idols until one day vanishing, taking with them the blood moon."
Their very existence is said to be an abomination to life itself, destroying and killing everything that they deem inferior to them.
"Amongst the legion of demons inside their world, The Devil Beast rain as the kings who govern them through their immense dark magic."
In rare occurrences, the beasts are known to manipulate the minds of other humans, hoping to find someone that can come to their world, since the seal only blocks the way for demons. Ancient scriptures that recount any information in regards to these beasts have either been destroyed or lost in time, waiting to be discovered. In the few scriptures that have been found, they depict humans worshiping them as gods, others illustrate The Devil Beasts showing great reverence toward red-colored Moon called The Blood Moon. Even today, there is no clear indication on the kind of relationship both the beasts and moon share.
The Devil Beasts mostly enjoy devouring human flesh, considering them to be a rare delicacy that is rarely found in their world. They pass their time torturing souls and making deals with humans, as well as looking for the missing key that opens the last key to the Devil's Gate. Their unique Ethernano allows them to possess human vessels, but sadly only allows lower class Devil Beasts to leave The Void.
The cruelty that they exhibit to other creatures is horrific, seeing them as nothing more than food or a source of entertainment. They especially hate Angel's, viewing them as their polar opposites and absolute worst enemies.
Seal and Access
It is not known who exactly was capable of sealing the beasts into a different dimension, because the amount of magic power needed would be unimaginable, something that no human could be capable of doing. The Mysterious Figure created a portal to another dimension and threw these beasts inside, locking it behind with a number of powerful seals and locks, leaving a number of "keys" hidden in the human world just in case he needed to open the gate one day. In order for the gate to be safely guarded, the mystery figure also shrouded the gate in between dimensions so that no one would be able to have access to it even if someone had acquired the keys. The location as to where the gate is is also a mystery, only through the use of a one of a kind Gear Watch can one find the location.
The gate itself's only purpose is to keep the residents trapped inside along with maintaining any demons on the outside from communicating with the prisoners. Fortunately, this gate has no affect on humans, rendering them the only creatures capable of interacting with the gate and it's defenses.
The locks that make up the gate can only be unlocked using a series of keys and artifacts that will break the seals and free the devils from their prison. The number of keys that are needed to completely destroy the restraints are 7. The first two are actual keys, the first embodies goodness, the purity inside people, while the second encompasses malice, the desire to kill one's fellow man. Both represent good and evil found in creation.The next key needed to unlock the third lock is a special lacrima that possesses the magical essence of the Mysterious Figure. The lacrima overpowers the lock and destroys it, thus allowing access to the next four locks. However, holding it with bare hands will slowly destroy the one who clasps onto it.
The fourth Key is a demon heart said to have belonged to a demon that served The Devil Beasts loyally. The heart's purpose is to fill a special vial in the lock with demon blood until it shatters, destroying the lock and allowing access to the next lock.
The next Key is a skull called "The Lost Sinner," belonging to an unknown human being filled with unique Ethernano particles that serve to dislodge a safety Mechanism inside the lock, thus unlocking it. The form and energy that make up the skull make it unique, rendering it impossible to duplicate or create a forgery to fool the lock.
This key is a unique, one of a kind Gear Watch created by the Mysterious Figure for the purpose of not only unlocking the semi-final lock but also serves to find the Devil Gate. The watch, once placed, syncs up with the special gear interface that makes up most of the lock, and unlatches the lock from the gate.The final key is the most difficult one to obtain for the simple reason that it does not reside in the human world but in The Void. The Mysterious Figure feared at the possibility of someone being able to gather all the keys and reaching this point, so as a final contingency, he threw the final key into their world just before the gate closed. It is unknown how the final key looks like or what properties it possesses.
The Devil Beasts have surmised that the only way of taking the key back to the human world would be through the use of a human, since they are not bound by the gate's rules. The only problem in regards to this are two:
- The Devil Beasts have yet to find the final key, due to the immense size of their world.
- No human has survived the trip to The Void without dying upon arrival.
Devil Beast Hierarchy
In their world, the demons and devils that preside over there follow a chain of command that was established by the Devil Beast God, during the first Age of Darkness.
