Esphia was a Malakh Angel, she was stationed as hellguard in an angelic outpost of hell. One day, her outpost was attacked by a powerful pit Fiend named Yuoros and his horde of mercenary. They slew or enslaved most of the angels, Esphia wasn't lucky and was carried back to the fiend base, bounded by chain. She was tortured for years until death took her. She was raised from death by the Seraphim Ironusk, but she changed. Never again would her word carry charity and goodness, never again would her action truly defend good. After Ironusk died in a battle against the Lord of the Eight, Mephistopheles, Esphia lead a careless assault against a devil citadel. The battle was not only a total failure, but 3/4 of the angels stationed in hell were slaughtered in the counter attack.

Esphia was brought before Heaven, their judgement was harsh but fair. They cast down the angel into hell. For years she still fought against the devils. She fought for law and for her honor. But as year passed she was more akin to a devil than her celestial kin. She finally fell from grace and started using dark power against the devils. One day she ventured into a temple of the Eight Layer, were the carcass of her former master, Ironusk, was hanged with rusted steel pike from the ceiling. Instead of freeing her former master, she committed an ultimate act of greed. She consumed the holy essence of Ironusk and then turned in appearance and power similar to a Seraphim. She was bathed in divine light and then proceed to try to overthrow Asmodeus and take the realm of hell for herself. No one knows how the story of Esphia ends, it was sure she was defeated, but now belonging nowhere she couldn't find rest and began her existence as a vestige.
