Well, these opinions seem to be based on very little that's seen. And Haken is a special kind of evil...we don't know if he was gentle and peace loving before the Palace crashed. Perhaps he wasn't...perhaps he was biding his time. Or perhaps he'd been content with his place in the circle, but once the opportunity for true power came, in an arena he thought he could best others in, he took that opportunity. I don't think that they're as "evolved" as people think. I think they're just in another form of being than we are. They had a lot of power...shapeshifting, flying through the stars, being able to explore countless planets...Abode probably wasn't the first one they visited with the intention of being noble, mysterious, awe-inspiring creatures to the inhabitants. Even if they were gentle and peace loving as a species, that kind of power can go to one's head, even if one doesn't realize it.
