PeriodDemon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE)

The Quara'tun Covenant was an alliance of heroes of the Creation War (1486 DE - 8777 DE), god-like beings destined to become Higher Powers, and others battling the massive demon invasion of the Quara'tun System.

Forged with the start of the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE)), its armies were well-trained from the previous conflict, yet nothing in size to what came against them. Like in the Creation War, the Covenant bolstered their armies with mortals.

Every one of them a crack soldier, a match for ten or even a hundred demons, yet not enough to stand against what is coming out of the Abyss.

The Demon Spawn War started early in the God Era. This Age of the Gods was a time when some got a higher calling, leaving the realm of mortals to become Higher Powers. 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 when he went through the Temple of Ascension, becoming a Higher Power. 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.
