Those that survived this process went on to destroy their own world completely, reducing it to rubble, as a sacrifice to their maker. But they did not do so directly with weapons or war. Rather the Squids used weapons of the mind like trickery, obfuscation, strategy and more to create downfall from within. Then they ventured to the stars to carry Exala's word to all the worlds. Now the Squids are a star-spanning cult devoted to creating a universal apocalypse. On whichever worlds they land, they go on to destroy. Each world destroyed represents another victory for Exala, and another sacrifice to her ultimate vision.
