The Deity realm used to be the territory of the Deities centering the divine tree. It floats in the air and is close to the earth. After the war between deities and humans, Fuxi's raised the divine tree and the territory of the deity into the ninth heaven, disconnecting heaven and earth. Only those with the Deity’s scepter are allowed to enter. A token of the deity realm is required to enter and exit. The deities set a commandment not to interfere with the human realm unless violated.
There are two types of Deities: The Ancient Deities, created by Fuxi with his spiritual energy, and the New Deities, created by the fruit of the divine tree. The Ancient Deities are powerful, small in number, arrogant, and ruthless. Having lived in the sky for a long time, they gradually became intolerant of the vitiated air of the human world. Since the New Deities are born from the divine tree combining clean and vitiated air, they are not troubled by the vitiated air. They have more members and younger, ones but with lower status.
When the deities reproduce, their spirit power will gradually be absorbed by their children, and lose their immortality, aging like mortals. Meanwhile, the deity children grow slowly, it is difficult for them to inherit their parents' place. If left to itself, the deity race will eventually decline. Therefore, the deity strictly forbids love within the race, and anyone who violates the rules will be imprisoned forever. However, in the long years of eternal life, there are often those who cannot help themselves, leaving behind endless songs of sorrow. The child of a deity is a taboo in the race.
The deity realm is strict with absolute hierarchies: Heavenly Emperor, Elder, Lord, Higher Deities, and Ordinary Deities. After Fuxi retreated himself up in meditation, the Elder deities, headed by Jiutian Xuannu, took charge of all the affairs of the Deity Realm. All the Original Deities are at least ranked at Higher Deities. The leader of the new deity is Kuiyu. Although she is only a Higher Deities, she is brave and good at fighting and has defeated many monsters, and is respected. She has the highest prestige among the new deities and fights with her Loong Cloud Spear, which is so powerful that even impresses the enemies.
Remarkable character: Xiu Wu
Demon is the only race that will not reincarnate after death while the newborn demons will inherit the inborn ability to reunite for years the demonic energy scattered after death and back to life again. The demonic energy is also a shortcut to strengthen the power of the Demon. Hence, some of the demonic energy will be absorbed by other demons before they can reunite and be reborn.
The Realm of Demons was originally the land of the Nine Nether, a dimension created by the Great God of the Ages. After the defeat of the Three Tribes in the Millenial War, Chiyou, the leader of the beast tribe led his tribe to retreat to the Land of the Nine Nether. The Nine Nether is filled with Miasma, making survival difficult. After the beast breathes in the Miasma, their inside power of the Great God is triggered and turns them into demons after practice austerities, forming the place later known as the Demon realm.
Tribes living there are always fighting for limited resources. Although the demons obey only the strongest, the power among all the tribes somehow manages to maintain a balance. If someone kills and hurts a fellow tribe member for the demonic energy, they often become the common enemy and are besieged by all of the tribes.
The 8 major tribes in the Demon realm are: Yaksa, Rakkhasa, Deva, Asura, Garuda, Gandharva, Naga, Kimnara.
