God Hand were formed about 2000 years ago. They were created by God to punish humanity for not helping him defeat the Demons. The ways they punish humanity are not often death, but more of eternal suffering. Due to years and years of their work, most God Hand members forget their faith and begin torturing for entertainment.
God Hand members are chosen in a complex way. After the previous Members have died, fives golden eggs(not to be confused with the red apostle eggs) called the Behelit appears in a random place around the world. The wearer of the Egg begins to go into a state where they loose the ability to care for anyone else and begin to focus on their lives than the lives of others. They will go to extremes to guarantee their survival. By wearing the egg, one lives until the egg hatches. The less people who wear the egg, the stronger the God Hand member that emerges from is is. This hatching process occurs every 500 years
There are 5 members of God Hand in each hatching. The Thumb is the most defensive, slow and can take many hits before feeling weak. The Index is considered to be the leader, who commands the team which strikes to make and where. The Middle is the strongest and most powerful. They stand heads above the other members. The Ring is as strong as Index, but uses their power offensively. The Pinky is the smallest and fastest. The group is devastating as a whole, but weaker separated.
