The Below formed from the hate and greed festering within Elturel. Elturel fell into the Below from Al’Madoon’s sacrifice, finding himself surrounded by a plane of shadow and despair. Many Elves, witnessing their master fall, cursed Al’Madoon and followed Elturel as he descended. A deep hatred for Al’Madoon consumed Elturel. In disgust by his failure, he began to manipulate the Elves loyal to him, transforming their flesh into horrific variations. Over time, these Elves became the first demons and devils, their minds now broken by suffering.
