Daedra are gods with an Evil and/or Chaotic alignment. All of the gods in the Discordian Trilogy are Daedra. Although they are generally not bound to the physical world, they are capable of manifesting within the mortal plane of Earth. Scholars are quick to point out that the characterization of Daedra as "evil" is a gross oversimplification. Whereas the Olympian gods represent stasis, the Daedra represent fluidity, change and Chaos; this causes many Daedra to be seen as destructive. However, mortal concepts of good and evil cannot be easily applied to them, and to the extent that these concepts do apply, Daedra exist at both ends of the spectrum.
