It was said that the Pre-Universe had physical laws closer to what might have been understood as magic
After the destruction of the Pre-Universe, some species found their way after the big bang and some had god-like powers. Thus, some of the most powerful beings in existence came from before the universe that was home to the humanity began. This made them older even than the Angels themselves.
Amongst the races that claimed to be older than the universe itself were the some such as a group of monsters who had withering tenticles. On many planets, these beings became part of the legends and myths.
These Monsters did not originate from this Universe, but the one before it. They were originally a powerful race of beings who were the equivalent of God in their native space. However, when their Universe ended, the Monsters shunted themselves into a parallel dimension which collapsed seconds later into the new Universe. This allowed them to pass into the new Universe which had different laws of physics, and they discovered that they had gained god-like powers which allowed them to manipulate the new Universe in which they now existed
Ancient carvings dating at least fifteen million years ago show that the monsters ruled everywhere before they died out and went into hibernation after fleeing from the predators with a touch of decay. They managed to escape from the great cosmic disaster in order to flee into a Time Vortex where they became non-physical entities thus leaving their bodies behind on Earth.
Their minds have sought to return to their bodies when the stars were correctly aligned as the tidal forces of the stars in conjunction can bring about a sufficient tear in the space-time continuum which can bring about a pathway through which they can reunite with their bodies. However, as the stars were constantly expanding and contracting, they never returned to the same configuration as the time when the monsterswent into hibernation. Thus, they required the assistance of their followers to attract the attentions of their bodies autonomic insticts and allow them to chance to compensate. As they were unable to affect the world physically, they used the influence of their powerful minds to achieve their goals
Sometimes they are living in regions with "very little reality", and are now nightmarish monstrosities that crave the reality that those in more solid universes take for granted. They tend to try to invade the mundane universe in the vain hope of becoming more real themselves, "with the same effect as the ocean trying to warm itself around a candle." They don't actually have form; the reason that they look like an incomprehensible mass of tentacled horrors is because when they do acquire some substance by coming close to the real world, they're terrible at it.
In all cases they beings that live outside of time in eternity, are immortal. They can take anyone they want from any point in time and force them to do whatever they wish. They are not invincible, though; if somehow trapped in our reality, they are mortal and vulnerable.
In rare cases, can use the imagination of people from our universe to form realities.
They were known to be one of a number of creatures that had adapted in a way that made them capable of perceiving the higher dimensions
They were known to possess physical bodies which they sought to return to and had a third part of their form which existed in the outer dimensional planes which some believed was where they originated from.
They are an unkillable, hideous monstrosity whose first order of business when he manged to escape was to suck up the souls of everyone in the world
In all cases they possess incredible age and intelligence.
Other Times they they cannot be looked upon in their true forms without driving the observer perminantly insane and can only manifest by possessing humans, melting all features from their faces in the process.
the few People that survived encounters with their true forms were driven almost permanently insane by the experience.
They are unimaginably ancient creatures that were preserved in humanity's race memory as their worst nightmares. They were conceived as creatures that spread evil, chaos and destruction wherever they went.
They are the former rulers of this reality, before their slaves, the first humans, managed to find a weapon capable of driving them into another reality. They are so evil and sadistic that even their own shadows were afraid of them.
These monstrous primal entities ruled the Earth with an iron fist for untold millennia until humanity eventually supplanted them.
They deliberately left Lost Technology around for future species to find to encourage them to evolve along the lines they want, thus making it easier to completely obliterate them when they return to "reap" what they have sown and have planned this 37 million years ago.
They also released a deadly-to-everything-but-humans plague, gained Mind Control abilities, and used it to enslave the rest of the galaxy and for them to worship them as gods.
They will wipe out half of humanity and then work the other half to death, before destroying the Earth.
Some monsters everyone who saw it died of fright, and that was only a crippled ghost of its true self 12 million years dead, which had been manipulating human lineages for millennia to ensure its release.
Some Monsters are a malign void which could reach across time and space to feed on the stuff of thought and hungered to devour all eternity, from the Big Bang to the end of time. Those who looked at it saw an endless procession of grotesque images, as their mind struggled to comprehend the incomprehensible
Other monsters are evil incarnate from almost the beginning of the universe, albeit one without a body of its own, instead possessing others' bodies. This is because they are not part of the physical plane and therefore do not have physical bodies, and must manifest themselves by possessing some material. They have the opportunity to gain a new physical body every 1000 year during there incarnation.
Dispite some of them looking human-like, their incredible age and intelligence, how easily and often the very laws of reality are twisted like playthings by them, and their inherent ability to perceive the universe in ways no other species can makes them alien.
Some are beings that live outside of time in eternity, are immortal and use the imagination of people from our universe to form realities. They can take anyone they want from any point in time and force them to do whatever they wish. They are not invincible, though; if somehow trapped in our reality, they are mortal and vulnerable.
Some are disembodied consciousness that whispers in people's minds for years or even decades to turn them into willing puppets, and is never fought or encountered directly.
They are creature so powerful some consider it a god, which has been sung to for millennia because if the songs cease for even a second, it will wake and devour all existence.
He might be an evil and sadistic tyrant. It enjoyed being in control and delighted in the terror of the people who lived under its rule. It was shown to be very callous, not caring at all about the welfare of others and it destroyed it's servants as soon as they had outlived their usefulness. It was arrogant and had a very high opinion of itself, believing it was a god.
Fortunally they can be destroyed by the heroes
Some monsters claimed to have originated before the universe and to have been imprisoned by the Angles likely placing both in the Pre-Universe.
After the Big Bang these monsters survivied and proccede to cause chaos to the point they in massive numbers flourished, the Fledgling Empires reigned supreme amoungst the stars.
War was waged between many people.
Eventually Peace was restored
