Long ago, in a time before thought, there was only a Globe in which all creation was mixed. As there was nothing with which to compare it, the globe was big and small, dark and bright, everything and nothing.

Over a hundred million years, the Globe began to grow and eventually two powers slowly began to form within. As they grew, the powers developed consciousness, becoming aware of their individuality, and separated into white light and darkness. White light formed as female and called itself Einhasad. The darkness formed as male and named itself Gran Kain.

Einhasad and Gran Kain joined their strength to break out of the Globe. In this process the Globe was shattered into pieces of all kinds. Some pieces rose to become Sky, some fell down to become Ground. Between Sky and Ground there was Water, and some parts of Ground rose up to become Land.

When the Globe shattered, the Ether contained in it spread into the world. This brought fourth the various animals and plants. So-called Genesis Creatures were formed of the Ether, and Giants were the best of this kind. They were known as the Wise Ones, for their intelligence was as great as their strong bodies. The Giants promised to keep faith in Einhasad and Gran Kain, as it was the actions of those two gods that had created their life and the world as they knew it. Einhasad and Gran Kain were satisfied with the Giants and appointed them to be the masters of all living creatures. This was before death and true paradise existed.

Apart from the Giants there were also other Genesis Creatures: the Cruma, huge tortoises, as well as the Arachne, half woman, half spider . Although largely different in shape, they all have in common an enormous size and a certain benevolent wisdom (which in Orfen's case later changed into deviousness and hatred).
