URGENT! How to create a new issue type between EPIC and STORY?

I need to create a new issue type called Quest. It's objective is to describe "hypotheses" of a scenario that Epic will solve.

This issue type will be "son" of an EPIC and "father" of a Story. So, in addition to the existing Jira nests, I will need the new one:

EPIC> Quest> Story> Subtask

How should I proceed?

Hi Dionei,

You cannot add to the hierarchy for what is already there. Epic is the top level, and then standard issue types like story and then finally sub-task below story. But you cannot insert another level between those. And Epics cannot be attached to other Epics. 

Except with JIRA software premium, right - where you have Initiatives too -
