The Great Beasts are a group of powerful creatures from another dimension who have tried several times to take over Earth. They're in fact older than the Earth, and became the embodiments of death on Earth when it was first commencing to come alive. They come from a time long before good or evil, for that matter, right or wrong. They're hellstorms, nothing more or less--living breathing tornadoes of mystical energy consuming everything in their path without restraint or remorse. They were trapped a thousand years ago in their own dimension by the Northern Gods but the magics holding them weakened. The Great Beasts live in a realm that was once not unlike Earth, though in a universe outside our own. After a million years passed, the Beasts rose to power there. They pillaged and corrupted their world, then set forth for greener pastures. Three times they attacked Earth, the planet nearest on the mystic continuum, and three times they were driven back. The last time, they were sealed behind a barrier designed to keep them forever in the Realm of the Beasts. The battle cost the victors as much as the vanquished. The land-beast Tundra, who was ever at war with the beast of the snow, Kolomaq, created a magical vortex that spun the energies of the barrier back onto their creators. This trapped the Beasts in their realm and the Northern Gods in their realm, Paradise. Llan offered his help his help, however he plan to drained their energies and then exterminate them and ruled as his own, luckily his plan was stop.
