|Long, long ago, there lived eight legendary demigods. They were known as the Eight Guardian Generals. They led the demigod legions against the impure Gohma, bringing peace and prosperity to the world.|
|— The history of the Eight Guardian Generals|
The General positions are passed on from generation to generation as well as the Mantra Affinity that will be chosen for the successor after the previous General has retired. Whenever a previous Guardian General of a certain Mantra Affinity is permanently incapacitated, a new appointed Guardian General would take their place and the Mantra Affinity they possessed. If no one is fit for the position and the specific Mantra (eg. Wrath, Pride, etc), the seat will remain vacant until a suitable replacement is found.
The Eight Guardian Generals were an elite group of Demigods handpicked by the Emperor of Shinkoku to protectShinkoku Trastrium and Gaea from those who wished to destroy it. For eons, the Eight Guardian Generals have done battle with the impure Gohma for control over Gaea and peace for Shinkoku.
In the latest struggle against the Gohma, Emperor Strada, the latest Emperor, led the current Eight Guardian Generals against the recent battle against the Gohma, won by the efforts of the newest General, Asura. After the Gohma's latest defeat, a coup d'etat was orchestrated by Deus, the current leader of the Generals, which culminated in the assassination of the Emperor and the banishment and death of General Asura who was blamed as the cause. After Asura's apparent death, the Eight Guardian Generals were disbanded and transformed into the Seven Deities, while under the control of Deus, who took over the world to rule as Gods and maintain all of Gaea as their domain, seeking to defeat Gohma Vlita once and for all.
The Guardians have a human-like appearance, yet they seem to appear and be more like holy deities due to their divine status. The Guardians, mostly the males, bear special markings and tattoos across their body, which vary in appearance and design from individual to individual. Some, if not all, of the Guardians have cyborg-like interiors due to Mantra converting their most combatively used body parts into metal, and they wear distinct clothing which differs from the other demigod warriors.
Powers and Abilities
Being the most elite warriors of the Demigod Fleet, the Guardians possessed many supernatural powers and abilities such as Enhanced Regeneration, Immortality, Superhuman Strength, Speed, Reflexes, Durability, Endurance, Dexterity, Flight, Teleportation and the ability to survive in inhuman areas such as the vacuum of space. Each General also possesses a Mantra Affinity and powers associated with that type of Mantra Affinity.
