In the beginning, Ticonderoga created this shard, imbuing it with a bit of his personality (the chaotic part). He created four shards in all, each one the precursor of the 4 alignments. Before the beginning of time, Ticonderoga created two cosmic apprentices Panagiotis and Panagiota to help him create the multiverse. They were entrusted with the placement of these powerful artifacts. This artifact was placed in a demiplane of pure lawful energy to counteract it's good properties, as were the others. Eventually, the stress from their monumental tasks intermingled amongst the entities, then spreading to the artifacts and weakening their prisons allowing the artifacts power to escape, corrupting the entities. The one in the negative energy corrupted Panagiotis and the one in the positive energy corrupted Panagiota and from that point on the entities lost their neutral alignments. Instead they gained the alignments pure evil and pure good respectively.
They thought of each other as abominations of their new beliefs and set out to destroy each other. In this cosmic war, Panagiota killed her brother. Ticonderoga saw this and took Panagiotis's body and used it to create a singular plane of unifying good called Chrysosdom. For Panagiota's treachery, he banished her to a place beyond all known existence. There she used her knowledge of shard creation to create two shards, one of knowledge, and one of chaos. The chaos shard was imperfect and mutated into a shard of madness. The energies this shard produced fused the two shards together into a plane of incomprehensible, knowledgeable, madness called The Far Realm. To look after this realm Panagiota created several deities such as Cthulhu and Hastur, among others. For this atrocity, Ticonderoga imprisoned her within a city named Sigil. Eventually her evil alignment dissipated and restored her true, neutral alignment. Nowadays, after countless millennia of imprisonment, she is known as The Lady Of Pain, giving little thought to the realm she inadvertently created believing Sigil is her one, true home. Chrysosdom ended up feeling the affects of the original Law and Chaos shards. In the north, the law shard imposed ideals and order. In the south the chaos shard imposed entropy and disorder. The north is now what we call The Astral Sea and the south is now what we call The Elemental Chaos. This shards' current whereabouts are somewhere deep in center of The Astral Sea in a place it helped create (Mechanus) protected by the most lawful creatures of all time.
