"God's avatar and controller of sand."
The god who created Kricktria had returned to find the world enveloped by ancient malignant spirits. He expunged the spirits from the world and then created avatars of himself to help stabilize the dimension.
Though these avatars were not gods nor humans, they each had their own will along with individual abilities and personalities. Once the world had been deemed safe, the god left for a different world. Over time, the avatars lost their power and went into resting.
And bit by bit, the existence of the avatars disappeared from the people's memories.
As one of the god's avatars, Gaian was created to repel the malignant spirits in the desert. He was created with the abilities to use the sand to protect the desert from evil influences.
During his human years, Osiris' research leads him to figure out that it was possible for a human to wield the avatar's powers. With the use of Gaian's powers, Osiris was able to unify the imps and forge a kingdom.
