The story takes place on a planet where Heaven and Hell are themes that represent the racial tensions between races of Demon and Angelic beings. The main protagonist was born from the neutral element of void which was born by the supreme chaos being locked inside the planet. He is brought in after escaping a lab as a ruthless primal instinct creature(Not being taught anything while being detained) by a disgraced angel who trains him to use his power to solve crimes and fight both angel and demon evil. He has to deal with his destiny of being void and believes to fight the evil even though he is born to destroy it and good. Answer:
The broad category would be fantasy. However, you're clearly mixing several genres here. It sounds like your story could be more specifically described as a paranormal dark mystery or possibly a superhero story. Sounds like it would make a good graphic novel or comic book.
I'm not sure why it needs to take place on another plant - but maybe you have your reasons.
