There were many Gods in Mardias, however the two that stood out from the rest were the creator, Marda and the Goddess of Destruction, Saiva. As the two were at a stalemate, both had used monsters and other beings as pawns for their battles. Saiva decided to turn the tides of battle in her favor by creating a God of her own. She channeled a strong amount of magical energy to her finger and pricked it with a needle. From her wound, Elore was born. However Elore turned against Saiva and sided with Marda, eventually leading to her defeat.
Upon her defeat, Saiva's remains broke up into three parts which became Gods themselves. From her bones arose Death, from her hair, Schirach and from her black heart, Saruin.
