PeriodDemon Spawn War  (8972 GE - 9493 GE)

The Quara'tun Covenant was an alliance among the gods and angels to combat the demon invasion of the Quara'tun System. It was forged with the start of the Demon Spawn War. Many of the angels, heroes, and gods that fought in this war were veterans of the Creation War, making them a match for ten or even a hundred demons, yet even this was not enough to stand against the sheer numbers of demons coming out of the Abyss. Like in the Creation War, they bolstered their armies with mortals.

The Demon Spawn War started early in the God Era. This Age of the Gods was a time when a archangels were entering the ranks of the Higher Powers, the realm's pantheon. As part of taking this new role, accepting the Rule of Divine Governance, they were forced to withdraw from the Mortal Systems. When they left, their command was taken over by another combat proven, skilled leader. With schools of war, most on the forge worlds of Ellubôz, operating since the Creation War, the Covenant had no shortage of trained, schooled, and usually highly effective commanders.

The top commander from the start of the Demon Spawn War was Ares. He led the forces of the Quara'tun Covenant until 9069 GE. In that year he was elevated to godhood. His top commander had already proven of such high skill that most of the other commanders agreed that Asmodeus should take the title Supreme Commander of the Quara'tun Covenant.

There were other figures that allied with the Quara'tun Covenant for as long it suited them or for a long time, like Bahamut, because of common interests. The Demon Spawn War was a brutal conflict that changed some of the Covenant's leaders to be more like those they were fighting. For some this happened from demon torture, like in the case of Lolth or from dirty fighting by certain generals in what often seemed like a losing war, as in the case of the Fallen Angels.
