The Vertexes (バーテックス; Bātekkusu) are a malevolent lifeform, created by the gods of heaven during the Anno Domini era for the purpose of exterminating mortal life. They've succeeded in destroying much of the world, apart from the Shikoku island of Japan which was protected from certain destruction by the Shinju-sama, a conglomeration of gods that sided with humanity during the humanity-Vertex war. In order to further continue protecting the remnants of humanity from certain extinction, Shinju-sama borrowed chunks of their divine powers to young girls, which will eventually become known as Heroes.
