Slightly Damned #191 [HQTS] (Statue)

Mother Gaia is the creator and ruler of Heaven and its Angels, and is one of the three Gods who created the world of Medius. Gaia is described as being kind and peaceful.[2]


According to a large statue that features her and Father Syndel inside the temple within the Tree of Peace, Gaia resembles closely to the Angels that she created; however her wings are in sort of a rainbow pattern, with the feathers along the top being red while descending in color to blue, green and yellow, all representing the four natural elements in magic. She has green hair that appears to be styled in a short ponytail set at the top of her head instead of the back, while held up by a crown-like accessory. She wears a white sleeveless gown with a length of detached fabric around her back connected to a ring on the fourth (ring) finger of both hands, while over it is a white tabard with yellow linings that form an intricate pattern. The tabard also features three symbols that closely resemble the three Angel Emblems.



Gaia, along with the other gods, Death and Syndel, have existed long before Medius' creation. Gaia and Syndel created the Angels and Demons respectively but wondered if they could accomplish more; Death convinced the two to work together and create the land of mortals, known as Medius, with Death supervising to ensure everything was in balance.

After its creation, the three gods decided not to interfere directly with Medius. Instead, they would only receive the souls of the mortals after death. Gaia and her angels rewarded those who were good enough to reach Heaven, Syndel and his demons gleefully tortured evil souls, and Death received all the rest in Purgatory. Death also created the creatures Cerberus and Drazil to guard Hell and Heaven respectively.[2]

Great War

Main article: Great War

The non-interference pact lasted for quite some time, but Syndel gradually became resentful of Medius where the mortals worshipped Gaia as "the Great Mother" but barely venerated Syndel at all. Syndel began interfering with events on Medius, encouraging an evil general to go to war and helping him conquer the surrounding nations.

At first, Gaia chose not to directly interfere herself. That changed when some of the dead souls who made it to Heaven reported that they had seen, or been killed by, Demons. At this point, the Great War began in earnest with Angels traveling to Medius to do battle with the marauding Demons.[2]

Inexplicably, the war came to an "end" a few centuries before the main storyline starts, although skirmishes continue on Medius with Heaven and Hell in a state of cold war.[3] Both Gaia and Syndel disappeared to places unknown, and even Death eventually left to try and find them.[1] The only clue to what has happened to her is a single bloody feather that belongs to her on the synopsis page of volume 1.

Powers and Abilities

Power of Creation: As a God, Gaia was able to create her own world of Heaven and the Angels in her image, in addition to creating Medius alongside Syndel and Death. Gaia is also capable of receiving the life energy of Angels who die so they can be remade into a new Angel when one is born.

Overall Abilities: While she has yet to appear, as a God she is immensely powerful and likely very proficient in Magic, especially Holy Magic.

Immense Magic Power: As a God of Medius, Gaia has a vastly immeasurable amount of Magic Power, as she is capable of creating an entire world with the aid of two other Gods and manage her own domain.

Immortality: Gaia (along with Death and Syndel) has existed as a god long before Medius was created. She is inherently ageless and it is likely that she is also practically indestructible by anything less than the power of another god. Whether it is possible for her to be injured or incapacitated, if only temporarily, isn't known.

A broken statue of Mother Gaia.[3]

  • Prior to the reveal of a much more detailed statue of her, a smaller statue of Gaia was found in an abandoned building. It had simpler features, though was close to the original sketch design found on the main site. Much like with Father Syndel though, it would be updated once it came time for them to be more relevant.
  • While the mystery involving Gaia and Syndel's disappearance thickens with the possibility that Syndel might have really been turned into an Angel, Buwaro wondered what Gaia looked like if she was actually a Demon this whole time; said form resembling a large black and purple-striped Demon, similar to him but with rounder ears, but still having her green hair, feathery wings and her robe.
