*It was the second century of mankind's arrival on earth when the Gods of Light took up arms against one of their own. Bala, a fallen God, had rejected the old ways of the Pantheon and sought to impose his dominion over man.
Feeding of the forced worship of men, Bala had grown too powerful for the pantheon to take him on alone. So the pure Gods each sacrificed a part of themselves to create a powerful entity.
She is Devi.
The Devi entity has been placed in a warrior woman of the Durapasya - the humans who fight alongside the pure gods. She has taken on the namesake of the divine entity and led the armies of gods and men on an all-out assault on Bala's fortress. *Source: Devi #1
