Roughly 1000 BC
The Society was formed approx. three thousand years ago following a coalition between the Watchers and a team comprised of demon hunters. Following the successful completion of their joint mission it was agreed that a larger organization was required to keep the forces of darkness in check.
The Watchers and the demon hunters scoured the globe, collecting agents and informants from each continent until a vast network is in place. Unfortunately many areas were left unprotected due to a lack of agents. Over fifty percent of the known world has teams in place.
In an effort to control the network of agents the Dark Council is formed. Representatives from every order of the Society are called to take a place on sub councils, which elect one member to the Dark Council.
Coordinating with the Watchers Council, the Society trains its first Master Slayer, Erik the Dark.
The Sisters of Night join the sub-councils, recognizing magic users as members of the Society. Witches and Warlocks begin appearing on teams.
A mass purge of demons is organized and for the first time since it was formed the entire Society gathers on one field. Two thousand and fifty six agents war against the major demon lord of the era, Garanis'al. He is defeated and his forces scattered or destroyed. Several smaller demon lords are also sent to the nether realms during this time period.
Two members of the Dark Council are expelled and executed for crimes against humanity
The Global Team system was implemented to allow one team to cover the area of five others. The system lacked the stability of the localized team and is not as efficient, thus the majority of the Society's teams are grounded in one area.

The castle upon the Isle of Mist is completed. The Dark Council officially takes residence
A stable doorway to the separate dimension containing the world known as Kel'ra is found upon the Isle of Mist. First contact is made with the inhabitants of Kel'ra and a tentative alliance is forged. It is at this time that study of demon dimensions begins in full, as well as studies of the side effects of dimension travel
Psychics, a side effect of dimension travelling, begin to appear within the Society. The Order of the Mind is established as a sub-council and psychics given special rank in accordance to their talents.
The treaty of Westmark is signed, allowing tested demons to enter the Society.
The Knights Byzantium cease attending council sessions following the treaty of Westmark. It should be noted that the Knights were never removed from the Society, simply ignored as a small subsection.
All demons are slain on the world of Kel'ra in one mass crusade. Kel'ra declared a haven for members of the Society who are injured and in need of rest.
Dimension travel is declared dangerous and is tested only with the highest care
A minor meteorite strikes the earth and the metals within allow for the making of the first soul destroying weapons. Ten blades are forged and locked deep within the dragon caves upon the Isle of Mist.
A minor demon dimension breaks through into central Europe and a three year war is fought to contain the demons once more.
The soul killing blades are declared too dangerous and all but two are cast into a dimensional rift
Various Kings or government officials are drafted onto a special sub council to ensure cooperation with the society and it's agents
