Outer Gods (外なる神, Sotonaru Kami?), also called Evil Gods of the Abyss (深淵の邪神, Shinen no Jashin?), are existences of another universe, beyond that of even parallel worlds. They are higher dimensional life forms, Foreigners, which a "single dreamer"WP correctly determined the presence of in his fictional mythosWP.

Characteristics[]

According to Gilles de Rais the Outer Gods are entities that are strong, gross and large in size. They are removed of the Common Sense of Man, the laws of physics, the principles of magecraft, and from human mentality, making it normally impossible to interact or communicate with them without being driven hopelessly insane or worse. They assert territorial claim upon the Earth; and claim to be the creators or inventors of Earth's lifeforms. If the Earth is left to their care, it is unknown what would happen, but Gilles states that it would be quite bad. He also states that currently the majority of the Outer Gods are sealed. While they fundamentally act of their own accord, there are relationships such as alliances and opposition among them. Gilles also notes that the Outer Gods are not existences that are conceptually or metaphysically indestructible, their true nature is simply beyond the ability of the human mind to comprehend. Although they're aberrant in nature, they do possess flesh and as such are entities of finite life, albeit of a sort that resembles no living thing in existence.

Raum believes connecting to one of the Outer Gods through his plan in Salem would allow it to "save" humanity through "pain." It is said that True Daemons are similar to the gods described in the mythos.[1]

    True Demon [Circumstances]

    Even in the world of Extra, the concept of Demons (悪魔の概念, akuma no gainen?) is by humanity treated as the greatest of obstacles; so as God is to omniscience and omnipotence (全知全能, zenchi zenou?), so as demons as an existence are to mortal levels of awareness and impotence (人知無能, Jinchi Munou?, lit. "human intellect and impotence").

    They are as an abyss (淵, fuchi?) that lies within arm's reach, yet decisively beyond comprehension.

    Distinct from those demons from Stay Night, which exist only as imitations, the real thing -- Enfleshed Demons (受肉した悪魔, juniku-shita akuma?, lit. "Incarnated Demon") are that with which humans are incapable of competing 太刀打ちできない (tachi-uchi-dekinai, lit. "incapable of crossing swords"?).

    (※ There is in record only a single instance in which an Enfleshed Demon was forced to disperse (退散, taisan?, lit. "disperse / retreat"), but that's a different story.)

    In general, demons are existences that take possession, utilizing the corpus of a human to incarnate (受肉, juniku) and take action, but in the event that the psyche (精神, seishin?) of the human host (苗床になる人間, naedoko ni naru ningen?, lit. "the human that becomes a seed-bed") cannot withstand the strain, it is commonplace for self-annihilation (自壊, jikai?) of the host to occur, dispersing the essence of the demon into the vicinity.

    There exist also humans who by way of their own acts (業, ?, lit. "sins; worldly preoccupations / fixations / absorptions; karma") are subsumed unto the category of Demons as a result of losing their humanity; but these creatures that are said to have become Fiends (魔人, Majin?) cannot be considered True Demons.

    In the world of Extra -- whether by way of Demonic possession, or in the circumstance that one's own actions bring about a transformation -- the phenomenon whereby a True Demon is birthed unto the world has, as of present day in 2030, not been brought successful fruition even once.

    Though the classifications of "Demons" and "Fiends" do exist, their manner of existence is in essence indistinguishable from that of a higher-order lifeform (高次元生命体, kou-jigen seimeitai?, lit. "higher-dimension lifeform") that inhabits a different sphere of civilization (異なる文明圏, koto-naru bunmei-ken?) upon a different planet (異なる惑星, koto-naru wakusei?).

    In sum, said existences can, per the recognition of the Universe of Awareness (認識宇宙, ninshiki-uchuu?, lit. "the universe derived of observation / perception"), no longer be discerned as "human."

    Their existences would approximate to that of the cosmic horrors (邪神, jashin?, lit. "evil god") of a certain fictitious Mythos popular in the 20th century.

    In the True Route of CCC, a certain individual that has undergone transmigration did indeed manage to reach this realm, but owing to a slight mistake, they were capsized from the Seat of Divinity (神の座, kami no za?).

    真性悪魔【事柄】
    EXTRA世界にあっても、悪魔の概念は人類にとって最大の障害として扱われる。
    神が全知能であるのなら、悪魔は人知無能の存在。
    手の届く範囲にありながら決して理解できない(ふち)だ。
    stay nightにおいて悪魔は偽物しか存在せず、本物————受肉した悪魔に人間は太刀打ちできないとされる。
    (*受肉した悪魔を退散させた例は一件のみ記録されているが、それはまた別の話)
    たいてい悪魔は憑くものとされ、人間の体を用いて受肉しようと働くが、苗床になる人間の精神が耐えられず、周囲に魔をまき散らして自壊するのが通例。
    中には自らの業によって人間でなくなってしまい、結果的に悪魔のカテゴリーに含まれる人間もいるが、これは魔人化と呼ばれるもので真性悪魔ではない。
    EXTRA世界において、悪魔憑きであれ、自らの業で変化したものであれ、真性悪魔を生み出した現象は2030年現在、一つの成功例 もない。
    悪魔、魔人化、と銘打ってはいるが、その在り方は異なる文明圏、異なる惑星に住まう高次元生命体と変わらな い。なにしろこの認識宇宙における『人』でなくなったのだから。
    その在り方は二十世紀に流行した、とある創作神話における邪神の在り方に近い。
    CCCの真ルートで変生(へんじよう)した ある人物はこの域に達しながら、些細なミスによって神の座から転落した。
