The Chaos Gods are a quartet of Loopers in the Warhammer 40K Loops.
Powerful entities who inhabit and control the psychic dimension that underlies all physical reality known as the Immaterium or the Warp, they are created and sustained by the emotions and collective desires of every sentient being of the material universe. They consist of:
- Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure - neither male nor female, Shi is the Chaos God of lust, greed, excess, pain, pleasure, perfection and hedonism, and is the youngest of the four. Shi is also currently dating Naoki and Kashima of the SMT Branches. Holder of the Element of Generosity.
- Tzeentch, The Changer of the Ways - represents the vitality and volatility of change and is closely associated with sorcery/magic and convoluted scheming. He is not content to merely observe, frequently choosing to interfere in the skeins of fate in order to fulfill his own, unknowably complex schemes. Holder of the Element of Laughter.
- Nurgle, The Plague Lord - God of Death and Decay and, as those two have been part of the galaxy since the beginning, oldest of the four. His domains are morbidity, disease and physical corruption. His time in the Loops have seen a slight improvement in his attempts to woo the Eldar Goddess Isha. Holder of the Element of Kindness.
- Khorne, the Blood God - a physical manifestation of anger, violence, and hate, Khorne is the mightiest and the second to emerge of the four Gods of Chaos, fully coming into existence during Terra's Middle Ages. Every act of violence gives Khorne power, whether committed by his followers or by their enemies. Holder of the Element of Honesty.
They were activated by the Mythos Hackers in an attempt to cause problems for Fenrir, and due to the nature of the Warp and Leman's attempts to avoid many of the issues found in a baseline loop, their activation was unnoticed. By the time they had been discovered by Vulkan, the four Chaos Gods had grown bored of their usual actions and begun to act in what is called a reversed form of the Sakura Syndrome.
- Elements of Harmony: They earned permanent access to four of the Elements of Harmony during an attack on Equestria by Nightmare Moon and the Smooze.
- Leman Russ: The four have come to share a familial relationship with their Anchor, and are a part of his team of Element-Bearers.
