It is known by all races that have been independent and space fairing that all life in the universe was created by Gods. Not one God that insignificant races such as humanity seem to believe exists, but many Gods. Literal, living Gods. The ancient beings known only as the Amaterasu were once a great space fairing civilization. They roamed the galaxy colonizing many worlds which they then proceeded to create life on. Now when the term 'create life' is used it does not mean 'to simply clone one form of species and then implement the cloned beings upon this newly colonized world' no, it means to create life from scratch, to shape and mold a new from of entity with no way of even the Amaterasu knowing of what this new species mindset would be or what evolutionary path they would traverse down. The Amaterasu continued this unique way of living for thousands of years and watched as many of the races they themselves created became space fairing super powers capable of colonizing worlds themselves. Many of these races eventually came to learn the truth, that this ancient civilization that they discovered once they hit the cosmos were actually their creators, due to this truth many species allied themselves with the Amaterasu and dedicated many resources to looking after newly 'seeded', the term the Amaterasu used when they implemented life onto a new planet, worlds and protecting the newly formed species upon them from any unknown threats. Due to the peacful nature of the Amaterasu most of their time was spent in improving their scientific capabilities and discovering a variety of new ways to defend themselves and their allies. During their scientific pursuit the Amaterasu created objects of great and devestating power known as 'Voids'. Voids allowed instantaneous travel from one void to another, no matter how far away they are. To others this new creation seemed a great deal more benefitial then dangerous but the Amaterasu continues to express their concern as they believed if a malfunction was to happenen a chain reaction across all voids would erupt, rendering many voids useless and inactive and due to the component used within the voids it was believed that if this did happen, large chunks of the universe would literally fade from existance. The scientific pathway they followed eventually allowed them to become creatures that defined the very word 'God' as they discovered a way to actually bend matter itself. As they were a scientific race the Amaterasu wanted to truly test the capabilities of their newly unlocked powers, sadly this unleashed a horrific threat into the universe as even Gods should not mess with matter as it could very well effect time and space itself. Whilst testing their powers a tear in space and time was created. This tear dissapeared as quickly as it came but the damage was already done. Four dreaded beings from a time and space were physics itself is completly reveresed and pretty much irrelevant managed to slip through this tear, four beings known as the Yon Kishu.
