These episodes were a massive undertaking. The big purpose of them was to give Order the back story it lacked when compared to Chaos. While Chaos may have had three seasons to develop a story, Order had been fairly stagnant story-wise, and needed this for some catch-up. An interesting side-effect of these episodes was the story of Valex. In all honesty the original plan for these episodes was to bring in some story for Order and then have a final showdown. Last second I decided that Valex’s character had been to plain and flat. In all honesty, I thought it was boring to write for him. So I made the last minute addition to his character, and I feel that it worked out perfectly.
