What is Chias?
In short, Chias is the concept of "change" at its most fundamental. The nature of Chias is unpredictable and does not follow any of our temporal, spatial and physical laws.

This vast ocean of energy called Chias fills another time/space dimension called Immaterium. Imitrium is an unstable realm that exists in parallel with the material world. Of course, it was dangerous at the time, but it was not as corrupt and violent as it was in the 1940s.
A species of very old creature called the Old Ones managed to dig tunnels inside the warp. With the help of these tunnels, they were able to overcome the dangers in Chias and travel to distant stars. Apparently, the ancients' understanding of the mechanism of warp was superior to that of any contemporary, as they succeeded in creating new species that were all somehow related to warp. Like the Crocodiles (the ancestors of the Orcs) and the Eldars. These creatures were embodied in Warp. Many of these feelings and thoughts had a dark side: such as feelings of anger, fear, helplessness, pride, and these negative feelings and thoughts became part of the bubbling volume inside Warp.
Over time, Warp became It became a more violent and chaotic place. Eventually a number of these feelings and thoughts came together to form special beings. These creatures became intelligent and became the gods of Chias.
Emotions such as anger and hatred, violence and bloodshed became Khorne, the god of blood.

There are a number of sub-gods Each representing the feelings and thoughts of the other, but the four gods mentioned make up the bulk of the emotions of intelligent beings in the world of Warhammer 40,000.They are interested in the material world, but they are more interested in fighting with each other for superiority. The battle between the gods of Chias is eternal, because if one god of Chias overcomes the others, Warp will return to his original calm state and Chias will no longer exist.
This eternal battle will continue through countless plots and conspiracies. And there are a lot of new ones involved in it, new ones that have their roots in both Chias and the material world.

The most numerous of these newcomers are The Daemons. Demons are beings created by the gods of Chias from the energy of Chias to carry out their will. Demons come in many sizes and shapes. Most of them look like the goddess of worship they serve.

The lowest type of demons, called The Lesser Daemon, are actually wild animals that often serve other demons or even some corrupt mortals. . The lowly demons are the infantry soldiers of Chias army. They are very, very numerous, and the army of every god of Chias is made up mainly of them. Although these beings are intelligent, their only purpose in existence is to serve their masters. Is an ordinary human being.
Corn's demons are deadly in combat, while Zich demons are more capable of driving insane creatures crazy.
The Greater Demon). These creatures are far more powerful than their inferior counterparts and generally play the role of army leader on the battlefield.

The Great Demons specialize in creating terror and destruction, and can destroy an army of enemies, forts, and armored vehicles. It was said that only a Primarch could duel with one of the great demons of Korn, and the great demons of Norgol could infect an entire planet with terrible diseases.

The demons are created from Chias. So they can only exist where there is chias. This means that demons cannot invade the material world like any other creature without any preconditions.
Warp gap and warp storm
Given that the material world And warp overlaps, at certain moments the fence between the two worlds weakens in certain places, and thus Chias enters the material world. The place where the barrier between warp and the material world weakens is called the warp rift. Sometimes these cracks occur naturally, and sometimes the gods of Chias or people corrupted by warp deliberately create these cracks.
These cracks can take many forms and can last from a few moments to It took several centuries. When one of the demons of Chias is inside the gap of warp, he can interact with the material world, although if the relevant devil is separated from the gap of warp, he will be weakened or killed.

Demons present in the material world cannot be like creatures Normally killed, they can only be returned to warp, and in warp they regain their lost power. In order for demons to be literally killed, special rituals must be performed, a special object used, or a very large amount of psychic energy used against them. Speaking the real name of demons can also weaken them and make the process of destroying or returning them to Warp easier. Warp Storms are a similar phenomenon to Warp Storms. After Hurricane Warp, part of Warp is thrown into the material world in an explosive and sudden movement. Warp storms are very turbulent and deadly, and the length of time they last varies, like warp cracks. See how many centuries have passed or they are stuck in warp altogether. Large-scale warp storms may separate part of the galaxy from other parts. They form the Chias army. Chias is a corrupting power, and many intelligent beings in the material world have been affected by its corrupting influence. The gods of Chias are always looking for creatures that succumb to emotions such as hatred, lust, ambition, panic, extravagance, and so on. Others have the potential to fall into Chias.

There are a number of Chias cults operating throughout the galaxy, and members of these cults are secretly trying to destroy the human empire from within. These sects try to draw people to themselves and eventually open the rift gaps to pave the way for a full-scale attack by the demonic army.p id="caption-attachment-972277" class="wp-caption-text"> Image of members of the Chias cult
