"Chaos, of course, is as old as time. It's the indomitable... uhm... fart gas that curses the cosmos through which this plane drifts."
- Urohringr, "A Trip to Thunder Mountain"

Chaos is an antagonistic force in the universe, and is the diametric opposite of Harmony. According to Verlax, chaos exists because it has to, because it is necessary for existence itself.

"...Chaos will always defeat harmony... but it will never destroy it. We live in a linear world, subject to endless decay, where all warmth and matter eventually surrenders to annihilation and cold. To delay the end is inevitable... but that does not mean that we musn't delay it anyways. Harmony will never disappear completely."[1]
