The story of Gaman:
Gaman is a collective term given to the organisms that populate the landscape of Planet Domu, Literally. Huge, living mountain mothers giving birth to the entire landscape of Planet Domu. The life cycle of a Gaman is a complex one that not only affects, but shapes the entire surface of Planet Domu. When the invaders came to the planet surface, Gaman’s began to rise from the earth in great numbers. Never before had the indigenous Womo’s seen such mass exodus of the Gaman’s. Clearly they were enraged by the hordes that were descending and waging war upon their peaceful lands.
Eternally linked through strong emotional bonds, the Gaman are constantly aware of all that transpires above the ground in which they dwell. When a great disturbance is felt, the Gaman will heave their ancient bodies to the surface in order to save the lands that rest upon their colossal shoulders.
In a mass evacuation, the Gaman have risen, and with their rising the landscape of Planet Domu shall forever be changed. As the battles rage and great swathes of Planet Domu are lost forever in the fiery turmoil of an epic war, the noble Gaman press onward, out of the smouldering landscape and dust clouds of oblivion towards clear skies. The constant bombardment of their subterranean home only serves to galvanise their spirit and strengthen their resolve.
Now as the fields burn and the seas boil, the Gaman raise their heads and march proudly towards the great plains, their birth place, their origin, to dig in and face their foe with the courage and determination of the mighty gods they were born of.....

The story of Little Axe "Butcher":
"Little Axe's encounter with the Wolf proved to be a surprising one. During their fight, the Wolf removed his left eye and placed it in his mouth. This technique enabled him to see Little Axe's weakness but what he saw was far more shocking that he froze in disbelief. Her true identity was in view. This revelation provided an opening which Little Axe used to seal the Wolf's fate. Upon collecting the Wolf's head, her hood absorbed his blood and she regained her strength. Whenever she became hungry, she fed. Who can stop her?"
