In the beginning, Arwaith molded together the universe and time as a swirling void of chaos, random and without form. He used a portion of his power to create the four Sator: Ardel, Faris, Glaile, and Ogden. For his amusement, he chained all of existance to reside within his own rules of time and space. Once Arwaith grew bored, he left the four deities to themselves in pursuit of other interests.
In Arwaith's absence, the Sator restructured time, created light, and each created their own element. They then worked together to use the elements, time, and light to construct Etan as a throne for Arwaith. Arwaith returned but was not impressed by the world. To the disappointment of the Sator, he left for the cosmos again, so the Sator decided to take Etan as their own personal home.
Eventually, the Sator grew bored and lonely and decided to make another creation. After much experimentation, they discovered, together, that they were able to create life. They populated Etan with many plants and animals. However, the Sator were unsatisfied with creating simple animals, so they begin trying to create intelligent beings to populate Etan. The beings they eventually created they called human and the Sator were happy with Etan. For many years, the Sator lived in harmony with the humans and the many minor gods that arrived from the cosmos.
Eventually, Arwaith returned to Etan and saw the work the Sator had done. He became enraged upon seeing life created by deities other than himself, and demanded that the Sator destroy Etan. The Sator refused, and Arwaith proceeded to attack Etan in an attempt to destroy it. The Sator, backed by most of the minor gods, moved to stop Arwaith. They are able to repel him and he retreated back into to the cosmos.
In Arwith's absence, Etan and it's several deities thrived. Several years later, Arwaith created Skoros and sent him do split the Sator up. Skoros started secretly sowing dissent between the gods. The gods began to bicker amongst themselves. Eventually, the Sator decided they could each create a race better then humans without the help of the others. The dwarves, elves, khin, and saquan were each created and placed on Etan.
