In the God Era, Chronos was a stubborn and independent planetar that sought to carve out a domain on Bal-Kriav. When the Demon Spawn War started, he refused to join the alliance of gods and angels that became known as the Quara'tun Covenant. As a result of this decision, he had to face the forces of Graz'zt. The goal of this demon lord was to claim all of Karterus, and once that was secured move to the next landmass. Chronos was positioned in the south of Karterus, laying claim to a land that would one day be called the Hive. He was hard pressed defending Yandôr from what seemed like endless numbers of demons. He used his powers of time and space to turn the enemy in other directions or age them so much they turned to frail beasts which were easy pickings to those around them or creatures of the wild. At the time Chronos was but a planetar, so his powers were limited in face of a demon army that numbered in the thousands and grew each day. Chronos led an army of elan, a race he created, against the demons. He army entrenched and fought defensively in keeps shaped like wagon wheels. They were designed in such a way that if one spoke fell, the others could fight on independently. The interiors were made to funnel attackers into kill zones and to restrict movement. These keeps kept the demons at bay for five years, but after six of them fell, they came upon the Wheel of Time. In what would be Chronos's final battle of the Demon Spawn War, the Wheel of Time was used to wreck havoc among the demons. Some were ripped to pieces as parts of them were sent forward in time and others back.

Invisible tendrils of distortion whipped about the area like a great octopus. The cream of the assault brigades, the Arhi'lith, were totally annihilated when the Wheel of Time started up. Rutterkin were shredded into pieces, and the nabassu overwatch were withered so much that they no longer had the strength to fly - with all of them crashing into the wavering and rippling landscape.

- Pazuzu, general under Graz'zt - "Disaster at Enmort"

With the powers of the Wheel of Time, Chronos destroyed the army under general Pazuzu, but in the process overloaded it. This caused the device to rupture time and space causing its effects to become permanent in the area of Enmort. It also cast himself adrift in time along with his elan attendants. It took him the rest of the God Era to find his way back to the time stream he was cast out of. During the period he was lost in space and time, he learned a great deal of time, space, and fate. While he was away, he learned the time domain and was near to unraveling the mysteries of destiny. He had to wait to lay claim to this divine power because he lacked the worshipper base, and thus the inner power, to hold two domains as a planetar.

Image if you will, all of Brucrumus surrounded by a wall and within it armored cities and the skies above clouded with voidships. The capital of all of this is Gháshulg, and all cities and places of old are under the watchful eyes of the Orchish Empire.

- Chronos, written while in the slip stream after seeing the future - "80th Epoch"

In 1504, the then demigod Chronos allied with Thasmudyan. During that time in history, Thasmudyan's divine power was such that he was able to raise Chronos from being a minor power to a lesser power. The divine pact between these two gods required that Chronos pronounce the Curse of True Ageing. This curse prevented creatures of Bal-Kriav from restoring themselves from the effects of aging - magical or normal. Chronos was unable to maintain his power due to lack of worshipers, so he drifted back to a minor power in less than a decade.

Chronos is worshiped by those seeking a long and healthy life. His domain of time and those seeking to pray to him for guidance in manipulating it are widely considered to be dabblers in forbidden arts. The Balance keeps a close watch of powerful priests and followers of Chronos. They have on several occasions used mortals to eliminate or imprison those that seek to alter time. Some of these that are imprisoned for these practices are locked away in the Pillar of Chronos.
