The lord general of the monstrous forces invading Palamecia. No one knows either the intent or the cause for Chaos's invasion. He only seems interested in destroying all that stands in his path. While it is prophesied that the Warrior of Light will defeat him, no one knows when this will occur, or if it will happen at all.
In the distant past, Chaos was a noble from a village who sought Sarah’s hand in marriage, but she refused, as she was in love with Cid. Angered, Chaos cuts off the water supply of the village, and everyone starts to die of thirst. To save the village, Sarah agrees to the marriage. However, this was not enough for Chaos, as it was clear that Sarah was not truly in love with him.
Eventually, a figure named Voyce (who is Vox in human form), approaches Lord Chaos and informed him of rumors that spread about him around Palamecia, and suggests that if he wants to win lady Sarah's heart, he should organize a tournament in which he would best her love interest, gaining her favor.
Ordering his men to murder Mid, as had found out too much, he eventually is forced to duel against Cid. Knowing Cid is a threat, however, Chaos orders his men to chase down Cid and wound him beforehand until he is weak enough that Chaos’ victory is guaranteed.
Despite his injuries, Cid duels Chaos and, albeit losing an eye, kills him. His body flies over the edge of a cliff and the villagers celebrate. But unbeknownst to them, Chaos’ body sinks into the Earth in a pool of darkness. After that, the village was continually attacked by monsters, said to be born of Chaos’ evil soul. They were said to be Chaos’ curse, but as time passed the monsters that attacked Palamecia were just called “Chaos,” after the evil noble that had supposedly caused them to appear.
Thus started the the cycle of Warriors of Light and Chaos, as every time Chaos is vanquished, a brief period of light begins, only for him to be ressurected, and new warriors from different worlds to be called, without memory of who they were or where they came from, to Palamecia, in the hopes that one of them would be the one to become the new Warrior of Light and defeat Chaos.
Chaos is first seen in the vicinity of Castle Cornelia, where several blanks who chose to give up on their prophecy to protect Princess Sarah. Wol confronts Chaos here but was unable to defeat him and Chaos retreats of his own volition.
Chaos later comes after Wol, after noticing he has grown significantly in power. However, after talking to Vox, he targets Mogheim. Wol intercepts him but not before Chaos kills several moogles who attempted to delay him. Chaos kills Mowg as well, then summons Marilith. After Marilith is defeated, Vox teleports Chaos away.
Chaos is "the formless matter supposed to have existed before the creation of the universe."
