No one, possibly not even the gods, knows who crafted the Bastion Trilogy. It is uncertain if they were even crafted. Some speculate that they simply existed since the dawn of time, possibly even before that. All that is known about them is they were intended for the use of good. The last time the Bastion Trilogy were seen together was when the devils lost this plain of existence and were driven back into the nine hells. No one knows what happened to them or where they went, but those of faith know that they will return when there is one that is worth of their power.
