In the beginning there was a seemingly empty void. There was no such thing as light in this sad place, for the darkness filled the void to its brim.

Though the void was certainly not a suitable place for anybody to live in there was, however, one being who considered the ominous void its home.

The creature was none other than Baynala, the only being in the void.

Baynala was a strong and formless creature. The void that Baynala lives in is nothing but her servant, it bends to her will and her will alone. Whatever Baynala wants in her void, it shall be there.

Despite Baynala’s ability to shape the void to her liking,  she never brought any light to her void. The reason for light to not exist is simply because Baynala has no need for it.

Back then, the concept of light did not exist. Baynala dwells in the darkness, she can see clearly without the need of light.

It is unknown how the void or Baynala herself came to exist. There are currently multiple theories of their origins; one theory suggests that Baynala was created as a by-product from the formation of the void. Another theory on their origins is that Baynala herself was the thing that created the void, hence the reason why Baynala could change the void at will.

A common misconception of Baynala is her gender, for it does not have one. Baynala is both male and female and at the same time it is neither of them. Baynala could not reproduce like how us humans do it so the concept of gender is unneeded. Despite this fact, many people represent her as a female for her contribution to our lives whether it was intentional or not.  

Whatever the origins of Baynala and the void may be, it will never change the fact that they played a major role in the beginning of everything.  

###

After a few centuries of living in her void, Baynala soon started feeling a discontentment around her. Her powers of manipulating the void could not satisfy the need that arose from her occupying the void, companionship.  

Though Baynala was a mighty being, there were limits to her powers and because of that, it led to her problem.

Baynala could create any item of her choosing, but she couldn’t create one thing she needed the most: a companion.

She had no one to relate to, or someone who she could interact with. Her loneliness grew as time goes on and she became desperate for a companion. Her desperation made her feel quite insane, so when she found a way to create one she jumped at the chance despite the heavy price for it.

Baynala thought of an idea to create life. If she were to sacrifice a piece of her soul, that piece could have a chance to manifest itself into a life of its own and thus, create life.

The risk of this idea was high for she had never done this before. Her idea was merely a theory, there was no true evidence to support that if she were to sacrifice a part of her could create life. Baynala knew the risk but didn’t care due to her desire for a companion.

When Baynala decided to commence her plan, she sacrificed a part of her. She sacrificed a shred of her limitless power to create her companion. That power was half of her ability to control time and half of the power to control the void that she lived in.

As soon as Baynala ripped that power from her, it created a mass explosion. From that explosion out came out a being, a being we would soon learn to be Crolas, the God of Time and Space.

Baynala was overjoyed by her new companion. No longer would she have to suffer the torture that was loneliness.

Baynala loved Crolas so much so that she branded him as her child. She taught the young Crolas everything she knew and treated him as the most precious thing that ever existed.

Baynala and her child would spend a couple of centuries later happily living with each other in the void. But not all good things were meant to last…
