Quote1 Then, just when it was believed all hope was lost, seven pillars of light poured down from the heavens, and the remaining seven guardian generals appeared. Under the command of great Deus, they fought heroically against their brother who had betrayed them, and avenged their Emperor's death by sending Asura to his own. Thenceforth they became known as the Seven Deities, and they watch over the humans from the heavens. Quote2
— The history of the Seven Deities

The Seven Deities (七星天, Shichiseiten; lit. "Seven Stars"), formerly the Eight Guardian Generals, were a group of powerful Demigods in charge of protecting and ruling Gaea and its civilization. The main goal of the Seven Deities was to seek to gain power, by any means necessary, so they can wipe out the Gohma and defeat Gohma Vlitra once and for all, with the ultimate goal of achieving the Great Rebirth.

As result of the events that occurred throughout all of the story, all of the Seven Deities are deceased, with six (counting Yasha) of the members being killed by Asura and the last one by someone else. Yasha, despite joining the Seven Deities, turned against them and started helping Asura.

Story

EP15-5

The Seven Deities

The Seven Deities were a powerful group of demigods who watch over the Earth, which they call "Gaea". They have watched over Gaea and humanity for thousands of years. Formerly known as the Eight Guardian Generals, the Seven Deities formed as part of a plan, put into action by the extremist demigod commander, Deus. The Seven Deities were created to collect the souls of mortals in order to convert them into Mantra for the "Great Rebirth" and create an eternal paradise for their civilisation. As part of the grand plan, the Seven Deities had the Emperor of Shinkoku assassinated under Deus' orders in order for Deus to assume control, and they blamed the murder on a former ally and Demigod. They effectively framed him for it and betrayed him, killing and banishing him into Naraka, kidnapping his daughter, Mithra, and murdering his wife, Durga, who was murdered by Sergei and was also Yasha's sister.

12,000 Years Later

After 12,000 years, Asura, called the "Fallen One", resurrects and returns from Naraka with his wrath in full effect, going on a personal quest of vengeance upon his former comrades, as each of them attempts to kill Asura to prevent him from interfering with their grand plan. Asura seeks to kill the Deities and save his daughter.

Wyzen is the first member of the Seven Deities to be killed by Asura, being obliterated while in his Gongen form with a barrage of lightning-fast punches and a final, devastating punch to his fingertip, causing him to implode, triggering a massive chain reaction. After killing the first of the Deities, Asura reencounters Yasha, his brother-in-law and older brother of his murdered wife, whom he argues and engages in a battle with, but is swiftly killed and sent to Naraka a second time.

500 Years Later

Asura resurrects once again after five centuries. Following a series of events in which Asura realises the genocidal and extremist methods the Seven Deities use to collect Mantra, Kalrow is the second member of the Seven Deities to be killed by Asura, being crushed to death while trying to escape from him in a pod. Whilst being slowly crushed, Kalrow tells Asura about the Great Rebirth the Seven Deities are trying to achieve and the everlasting peace and prosperity it would bring to Gaea and humanity, as well as the need of Mithra in their plan. Nonetheless, Asura kills him.

Falling from orbit and unconscious after killing Kalrow, Asura is rescued by his former mentor and another of the Deities, Augus, who takes him into a bath house. Augus converses briefly about the Seven Deities and how he thinks of Deus' Great Rebirth as "ridiculous", stating he is only in the Seven Deities so he can fulfill his thirst for battle. Finally, Asura and Augus engage in a clash, and after an arduous battle between student and teacher, Augus is disemboweled and killed by Asura. With their battle, Augus was sure that Asura had become strong enough to achieve his goal and kill the remaining Deities, and more importantly, achieve his goal of rescuing Mithra.

While wandering around a village, Asura is found by Olga along with an armada of ships, that proceed to devastate the village and kill its civillians, and most tragically, a human girl Asura had formed a bond with. This event and the injustice the Seven Deities bring upon the mortals infuriates Asura to a level never seen before, to the point where he enters a Berserker form and pulverises most of Olga's armada in moments. Olga then orders the Brahmastra to be fired at Asura to destroy him permanently, but due to Yasha's interference because of the massive consumption of Mantra it would take, Asura manages to survive, albeit injured. Yasha starts questioning himself about the legitimacy of the Seven Deities' cause. Since the Brahmastra was fired and a vast amount of Mantra was consumed, Olga is punished by Deus.

Another "purification" is ordered to a nearby village, with Sergei and Yasha taking action. The Gohma appear and are defeated by Yasha and Sergei, and the villagers' souls collected, as the Seven Deities had been doing for the past twelve centuries. Shortly after, Asura appears and quickly disembowels Sergei. While dying, Sergei admits he was the one who murdered Durga, and is then head-stomped to death by Wrath Asura. A raging Asura attacks Yasha, and a battle ensues. Yasha constantly tries to reason with him, but after seeing the futility of trying to talk things through Asura's ignorance and wrath, Yasha strikes his rival and reverts Asura back to his normal state, knocking him unconscious in the process. Instead of killing him, Yasha realises Asura has the power necessary to save the world. He then proclaims himself no longer a member of the Seven Deities.

Yasha goes to argue with Deus about the cause of the Seven Deities and the power they need to save the world. Perceiving it as an insult to his cause and his godly power, Deus fights Yasha, and some time later Asura too. Having defected the Seven Deities, Yasha joins forces with Asura to defeat Deus and put an end to the injustice of the Deities' cause. As the two demigods, Asura and Deus, clash, the leader of the Seven Deities is critically wounded and ultimately defeated by Asura.

Olga is the last remaining member of the Seven Deities alive, but is quickly killed by Chakravartin after she attempts to kill Mithra.

A trapped Mithra, along with some of the members, watch as Deus punish Asura for his actions

The Seven Deities appear similar to humans, along with wearing decorative armour and clothing and traditional symbols imprinted on their body, giving them a mythical look. Closer analysis of their bodies reveal elements of their physiology are cybernetic internally while taking on a clay texture on the outside layers of their skin. They also have orange-coloured blood.

Powers and Abilities

The Seven Deities, being exceptionally powerful Mantra-enhanced demigods as well as the former Eight Guardian Generals, possess many superhuman abilities that vary between members. These include immortality, superhuman physical abilities, regenerative healing factor, exceptional skill in combat, flight, teleportation, shapeshifting, and the ability to survive in places where normal beings could not, such as space and the Moon. They have also shown the ability to increase their power to new god-like levels by harnessing the power of the Mantra.

Trivia

  • When a member of the Seven Deities is killed their bodies disappear in a vast array of coloured lights (excluding Kalrow and Wyzen who were killed via crushing and detonation), and they were not shown to have a soul.
  • The notes for the illustrations of Asura in the extras section states that the Mantra reactors within the demigods convert frequently used parts of the demigods' bodies into durable metal (i.e. Asura's arms, Yasha's fingers, Wyzen's enormous fist, etc.)
  • The Seven Deities may possibly be based on the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • The Seven Deities may be loosely based on the Japanese Seven Gods of Fortune, given their divine nature and immense influence over humans.
