Typedivine lore

The Golden Seven were an elite band of angels that fought during the Creation War. The Golden Seven was comprised of seven angelic heroes. They were Ares, Athena (the group's founder), Naraz-Nâru, Ditherra, Iphæyûs, Phalgas, and Rôghar.

This crack group of angels were assigned hazardous missions by the gods, such as the elimination of epic chaos aberrations and other primordials behemoths, and even bringing down primordials. On one mission, they were ordered to track down and kill a soul-eating primordial named Maen Grirngrim. In the fight with this primordial, Ditherra, Iphæyûs and Rôghar were slain. Their souls were wrenched from their bodies by Maen Grirngrim and devoured. The remaining angels slew the primordial and then incinerated his body with holy fire.

The remaining angels of the Golden Seven went their own paths after the Creation War. For a time they served their god, until they themselves were elevated to godhood.

While on Bal-Kriav, the Golden Seven built an enormous citadel called Aphalur. This place was used as an arms depot, training area, and later a hospital for the wounded coming out of Regadnîn. The Golden Seven also helped build massive fortifications to defend against the primordial invasion. The largest is a series of towers, walls and defenses called the Bulwark of Târulûth.

The Bulwark of Târulûth is a series of towers and defenses built by the gods and their angelic armies. They were made to stop the primordial hordes from breaking out of Regadnîn.

Many of these defenses were engineered by Naraz-Nâru. At the time, this figure was but a angel, a very powerful one, member of the Golden Seven, and serving Bal-Kriav.

The defenders of this as yet unnamed world ( now called Bal-Kriav ) built great bastions to combat the often enormous size and great strength of the primordials and their armies.

Some of the bastions of the Bulwark are Aphalur, Irrai, and Nâzel. One place, not built but "re-tooled " is Dališar. This structure looks like a volcano, sort of acts like one, but is really an imprisoned and lobotomized primordial.
