The bandit looks up at the man above him blood dripping in his eyes stinging and blinding him of the view of his killer in the blink of an eye the bandit is crushed into nothing more than a stain in the crushed earth.

The wall twists and contorts as she works her unnatural ability turning the brick into an easily malleable clay the group gets to work eager for the reward behind the wall.
The Gods all exist together but that doesn't mean peacfully, when a God is angry the world knows it one God unknown to most created the lawless expending the last of his divine power becoming mortal, after which no one is sure what happened. His creation was seen by the other Gods as a abomination but unable to do anything the Lawless are like a hydra for everyone they kill, the more that are born hesitant to create more they instead setout to make sure they couldn't become the god killers they were made to be.
If three different archetypes were to meet they could destroy a universe the birth of one is seen as an omen, generally leading to exile from the group a sad fate for the young. Villages have been known to go missing if a Lawless wakes the dormant power during a tragic event.
