— Asura and Yasha freeing Gaea of Gohma Vlitra

Gaea (世界, Sekai; lit "World") is the planet inhabited by most prominently humans, plants and animals, and also the supernatural race of the Demigods and the Gohma. It is the setting and where the majority of the events of Asura's Wrath take place.

Story

History

Gaea is one of the worlds where life was created by Chakravartin, the primordial god who rules over Mantra, where the Gohma was unleashed so that he could find a suitable ruler for it so he can go on to find more worlds to do the same. Gaea then became inhabited by various life forms, such as humans, animals, plants, and the demigods.

Thousands of years ago, prior to the beginning of the story, with the power of Mantra at its disposal, the Trastrium Civilization advanced at an exponential rate. Pollution and overpopulation began to harm the planet, and Mother Gaea became enraged with the cycle of life and death being grossly disrupted with the souls of mortals not returning to it once they left their bodies. In retaliation, Gaea, induced by Chakravartin, gave birth to the Gohma in an attempt to take back the souls that had been converted into Mantra and triggered a never-ending conflict between the Gohma and the Demigods known as the "War of Creation". By corrupting life on Gaea, the Gohma assumed the appearance of the animals residing in the planet. Among them, the one called Gohma Vlitra became the very will of the planet and the embodiment of Gaea's wrath against the Demigods, being considered the source of all Gohma, and the ultimate threat to civilisation itself.

The demigods and the Gohma of Gaea entered in a major battle some time later, with the demigods' Shinkoku army and its Eight Guardian Generals being sent out to destroy the Gohma. After the Shinkoku forces used their most powerful weapon, the Brahmastra, in an attempt to eradicate the evil forces of the Gohma, Gohma Vlitra emerged from Gaea and devastated most of the demigod forces, until Asura, one of the Eight Guardian Generals, managed to put the beast back to a temporary sleep.

Succeeding the framing and banishment of General Asura down to Gaea by his former allies, the Guardian Generals disbanded and became the Seven Deities. The Deities sought to accumulate enough power by collecting the souls of countless mortals living on Gaea, with the goal of defeating Gohma Vlitra once and for all.

12,000 Years later

Twelve thousand years later, the lands on Gaea became barren, wastelands afflicted with red blood skies and frequent lightning storms. The Seven Deities now ruled the world as powerful, divine beings. Yet, the Gohma still ran rampant on Gaea.

500 Years later

Gohma attacks were frequent on villages and cities, and the Seven Deities continued to harvest the souls of the mortals.

Moments after the defeat of the Deities' leader, Deus, Gohma Vlitra awakened once again, more powerful and monstrous than before. Asura and Yasha decided to fight Vlitra, but proved to be no match for its overwhelming power, until the priestess Mithra empowered them and allowed them to reach Gaea's core, where Vlitra Core, the true form of Gohma Vlitra, resided. Together, the two demigods managed to eradicate Gohma Vlitra and free Mother Gaea of its evil spirit forever.

Having found a suitable vessel to control the world, Chakravartin manifested himself after the defeat of Vlitra and explained his intentions and the reason the world was created to the ones present. Asura is enraged by learning the truth, and charges at the god, though being no match for the god's power even with his newfound power of Mantra Asura. Being disappointed and calling it "a failure", Chakravartin decides to destroy Gaea and begin a new world. Some time later, Asura acquires the Mantra Reactor to fight the true god, and before Chakravartin could destroy the planet with a colossal beam of Mantra, Asura stands in its way and protects Gaea.

After the defeat of Chakravartin at the raging strength of Asura, Mithra, who had been imprisoned by the god, returns safely to Gaea.

870 Million Years later

After 870 million years, Gaea has become more modernized.

Inhabitants

Humans and Demigods are the dominant species of Gaea. The planet is also home to multiple species of plants and animals. The Gohma, born from the planet's will, Gohma Vlitra, are also prominent beings on Gaea who constantly corrupt the planet's land and threaten civilization.

Nations

AW Shinkoku Trastrium

The Trastrium Civilization

Shinkoku Trastrium is the most prominent nation on Gaea. It is a unified empire on Gaea founded in the ancient past by the demigods, formerly ruled by Emperor Strada before his assassination at the hands of Deus. Shinkoku was formed for the purpose of protecting the world and defeating the impure Gohma.

Aside from Shinkoku Trastrium, there are innumerable cities and villages scattered throughout Gaea where humans live.

Trivia

  • Gaea largely resembles the real-world Earth.
  • Gaia (also spelled Gaea) is the personification of the Earth and one of the primordial deities in Greek mythology, being the mother and progenitor of all life.
  • Gaea has a large concentration of rocks, asteroids, and other debris orbiting it. This may have been caused by the war with the Gohma.
  • Gaea appears to be located within a nebula, with multi-colored clouds of dust and gas visible in the backdrop of space.
  • Throughout the leaks of the game and comic of ''Marvel VS. Capcom:Infinite'', Gaea was originally going to be a part of the Convergence, as Asura was originally going to appear as a DLC Character before Capcom cancelled the DLC.
