The rule of Five
The law of life
Everything that lives follows five important factors that give it their potential to strive and continue living. For as the very existence of a being consists out of 5 core aspects: Body, Mind, Soul, Chaos and Order.
The Five AspectsThe rule of Five occurs in any living being, whether they're aware of it or not. For some certain aspects of the body are more exaggerated, which in turn also exaggerates other aspects close to said element. Those who completely lack one of the five element physically or mentally could barely, if not at all function.
BodyThe body of a being represents their physical form, anything one can touch and feel. Without the body, a creature doesn't have form and technically doesn't exist in a physical sense. Close aspects tend to be Chaos & Order.
Undead embody the aspect of body the most, seeing as they lack either the independent mindset to rationally think, nor the soul to care about their actions. The further they decompose, the more prominent these lacking aspects are.
MindThe mind of a being represents one's logical thoughts and their knowledge, anything one has ever learned throughout their lifetime whether it's information or mindless facts. Without a mind, one can't think and can't make decisions of their own, understand the world around them. Close aspects tend to be Soul & Order.
Fae embody the aspect of Mind, with their association with the arcane. Since they are such magical creatures, many are stable in nature but at the same time also physically frail, tending to follow traditions often a bit too much on the nose.
SoulThe soul of a being represents their emotions and their memories, anything that would give them their personality and quirks. Without a soul, one becomes emotionless and heartless, feeling no joy nor sadness for its actions what so ever. Close aspects tend to be Chaos & Mind.
Ghosts embody the aspect of soul the most, since literally they're the remains of one's soul before they become one with the cosmos. Without a body, very often they're easily triggered and emotionally unstable, making it not uncommon for a ghost to just lash out at anyone daring to disturb it.
ChaosThe chaos of a being represents their will to change, to adapt and improve, giving essentially the randomness to a creature. Without chaos present, one will not change nor improve. Close aspects tend to be Body & Soul.
Demons embody the aspect ofChaos due to them being born in the Infernal Realm itself. Many tend to lack their own logical reasoning, often going on instinct rather than reasonable thought when confronted with problems. This makes them often highly unpredictable.
OrderThe order of a being represents their stability, the control of the other aspects of the body. Without order present, one loses logic and sense, all other aspects of their being becoming essentially unstable. Close aspects tend to be Body & Mind.
Angels embody the aspect of Order, as they originate from the Angelic Realm. Due to their association with the ideals of Order, they rarely alter their strategies and seek to achieve a perfect balance with everything to the point of stagnation.Perfect balance
