In the backstory, [[ApocalypseHow nuclear war]] devastated Planet Earth, and several new races mutated out of humanity. One was the elves, another the dwarves; but the two most powerful were humans with [[AGodAmI demigod-like]] powers: the [[WellIntentionedExtremist Sartan]] and the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Patryn]]. These two races began to war over who would rule; eventually, the Sartan secured victory by remaking the Earth into four separate worlds, one for each element, which would then work together in harmony. (That's their children's catechism quoted above.) They imprisoned the Patryn within a "correctional facility," the Labyrinth, and built Death's Gate itself as the central nexus which made the whole PortalNetwork function. It was ASimplePlan.

* FightingAShadow: You can't kill the serpents permanently: if you try, they'll just re-form in a few days, twice as powerful as before.

* VillainsNeverLie: Sinistrad outright told his wife to be that he is evil, and that she would regret her decision to be with him. "If you marry me, you marry darkness." She thought he was being romantic and mysterious. Possibly a TakeThat at the more rabid [[{{Dragonlance}} Raistlin]]-fangirls.

* WorldSUndering: A major part of the backstory. In a successful attempt at winning the magical war between themselves and the Patryn, the Sartan sundered the Earth and remade it into the four elemental worlds and the Labyrinth.

* AbusivePrecursors: The Sartan had definite shades of this -- at the very least, their opinion of the [[{{Muggles}} mensch races]] was low enough that they had no real issues with killing untold millions of them when they sundered the Earth. Not that the Patron would have been any better, mind.
