In the beginning the Creator started the creation, but he did not wish to be alone in this creation. He created the Guardians to help in this creation and gave a star to each of them with planets for them to shape. The Guardians in turn created the Helpers to be their hands, eyes and ears.
The Helpers are the implements of the Guardians. They are the beings that interact directly with the creation. Many of them were created for very specific purposes. Like many old cultures worshiped a god for rivers, well they worshiped a helper.
Helpers handle anything and everything, it all depends on what the Guardian wished them to do. Helpers typically have great expertise in particular areas, but in all others they are nearly useless.
