I am of the opinion that the Chaos comes from the Malkioni. The earliest Orlanthi myths speak of the Predark rather than Chaos. Later on in the Gbaji Wars, they became exposed to Arkat and other Westerners and brought this new learning to Dara Happa ("These enemy hated an enemy called Chaos. They said that our Nysalor was chaos" Fortunate Succession p23). The Dara Happans had been fighting the Orlanthi for over seventy five years at the time yet this is the first time we hear about chaos.
The Kralori concept of chaos is likely to be related to Orxili. Cults of Terror (and Cult Compendium) states they worship Gbaji but abjure other chaotic deities so whatever philosophical differences they have with other gloranthans about the origin and nature of chaos, they are opposed to it.
