It was something no one had foreseen. The universe was shifting, cracks in the sky revealing places not familiar to their world. Visitors from these worlds materializing from thin air leaving them baffled as to how and why they had been spirited away. This however was nothing compared to them. Those that had seen it described it as the cracks in the sky to open wide from where horrible creatures would emerge creating chaos in their wake. The cause of these phenomenons was none other than the Chaos Lord Shuma Gorath. With his dark powers he had managed to break the barriers between his dimension with and a neighboring Universe going by the title of CAP-COM as well as the realm housed by that cursed Sorcerer Supreme. His minions would roll forth slaughtering and subjugating any realm that came before them and extend his dominion further. Others chose not to go quietly, among them powerful Elder Gods in their own right ready to get rid of this “upstart” whom threatened their plans. Despite their best efforts they too would be engulfed by the flames of battle ending up another notch on Shuma Gorath’s conquest. One among them however would not roll over and die to please the Chaos Lord…
The war had gone on for a few weeks now. The warriors were fatigued and a large number of the world’s strongest inhabitants had vanished prior to the first wave of otherworldly monsters. The Dark Messiah Jedah Dohma would be standing on the castle balcony surveying the chaos and destruction the attackers had caused.
“This world screams out in pain, and I am the only one who understands it.” With the uttering of those words he would look skywards and ascend into the heavens towards the looming vortex from which the beasts had emerged. Any opposition he met would be squashed as Jedah would float into the vortex and appear on the other side, a barren wasteland stuck in perpetual darkness.
Suddenly he would hear a booming voice echoing all around him. “Who dares disturb the dominion of Shuma Gorath?” From the darkness a tentacle would shoot out catching Jedah into its grasp. Despite this predicament Jedah proceeded to speak calmly.
“I am Jedah Dohma, Dark One, and what I seek is for you to halt your conquest and return your minions to the dark pits from where they clawed themselves out from.” His reply would be met by a guttural chuckle as Shuma Gorath’s tentacle wrapped itself tighter around Jedah’s body.
“You speak far beyond your station, little bat. Everything begins and ends with me! Chaos is absolute making me absolute! What being are you to think that you can speak in such a way to me? You came here on a fool’s errand and that is how you shall meet your demise.” Dark magic’s would crackle as Shuma Gorath pointed his tentacle towards Jedah. “Like a fool.”
A serene smile would be on Jedah’s lips before he uttered three words. “Pacis Proditor Venatus.”
The next words uttered by the Chaos Lord would be spoken in a dead language though what he was saying was evident enough as well as his mood as the entire realm seemed to shook in anger. “Throw your challenges at me as much as you want, little bat!”
“I think this challenge will be more than enough, Dark One.” Jedah replied. “The gauntlet has been thrown and such an old deity such as yourself…you know what that entitles.”
Shuma’s eye would narrow as he looked straight at Jedah before he finally spoke. “I accept your challenge, little bat.”
Jedah would again smile. “Excellent, the fate of the universes you have attacked shall be in the balance. If I win you are forced to remove your influence from the worlds and seal you back here in this dimension.”
“And if I win, little bat. My dominion of you and all of the realms shall be absolute.” Shuma replied in turn before setting Jedah back on the ground.
“I propose a neutral ground as to where this little game of murder shall take place.” Jedah would move towards the vortex. “And I know just the place.” And with that he vanished.
As Jedah disappeared Shuma Gorath would laugh. “Such a fool! Does he not realize Shuma Gorath is infinite! The little bat is only delaying the inevitable! I will have his world and all of the others as well!”
