The Basanos are a tarot deck created by the Angel known as Meleos, whom destiny of the endless allowed to copy from his book. Meleos imprisoned them in a wooden chest and locked them away but soon they would escape and when he tried to destroy them, they made a hole in the middle of his head which even he could not heal, and only brought him misery. Lucifer punished him for this by destroying all the knowledge he'd acquired over the years in the form of a powerful plague that erased all the words from his books, creating a sea of ink. Later, the cards would possess Jill Presto, a young Magicians assistant afterward they would rape her bringing forth the birth of Noema.
