Eternal Alchemy is the typical Asuran religious and philosophical interpretation of the universe. The Asura Kerrsh explains that the Eternal Alchemy is the "greater scheme of existence" that all things are a part of. Asura do not believe in gods in the strictest sense of the word, but see the Human gods as facets whose manifestations compose a "geometric whole". As such, Balthazar is the "Facet of Destruction" while Melandru is represented as the "Facet of Creation", all essentially elements of a greater divine essence. In the quest series given by Kerrsh, you must locate and defeat a number of such facets, represented as a spirit like dragons.
