4.543 billion years after the Great Act.
The Multiverse was a paradise, the Vestals were proud of themselves and then they finally decided that they could have some rest.
Darkseid, Edses, Urus, and Vadus were protecting the barrier between the multiverse and the emptiness and darkness.
Till this day they couldn’t figure out how it broke through their barrier, but never the less they fought against it. To the four Vestals it was considered to be a victory but when they were called by Denon himself, their smiles quickly dropped.
Denon discovered that the emptiness and darkness corrupted their creation and the so-called Great Curse was spread upon it.
They couldn’t believe such a thing, but the fact that mortals were starting to be affected by this Great Cruse, it was enough evidence for them, Edses, Urus and Vadus took the news with a heavy heart, however, Darkseid wasn’t ready to give up, not yet.
He traveled towards the barrier without his brethren’s approval, he opened the barrier and walked inside the void of emptiness and darkness while closing the barrier.
For him it was confusing as to why it didn’t attack him, to be frank, Darkseid himself came there to seek answers by himself. From all the Vestals he wanted to understand this thing called the void, so that next time they might make peace with one another and find a common truce which would enable them to coexist.
Darkseid would eventually find himself on a dark, forgotten land, it gave him an ominous feeling. As he looked around a tree was in front of him only that it was a few miles in the distance, he starts to walk up to it and eventually he reached it.
Make no mistake for the tree was as tall or even better said taller than the towering Godly Giant Darkseid. An intriguing thought struck him out of nowhere, he wondered what this tree is, as a silent whispering voice could be heard talking into his ear, the voice said that it was the Tree of Knowledge, forgotten by everything and everyone else, that is if there was anything, Darkseid didn’t know that this was all a lie a trick to tempt him, which was all orchestrated by the emptiness.
Darkseid a bit skeptical at first he places his hand on the tree trunk saying that he wants to know the Truth, he wants to know how can he save Life and bring balance to the Multiverse and save the mortals from their extinction, once a noble cause now turned, dark, and twisted, Darkseid was overwhelmed with many possible outcomes and scenarios on how Life would end or survive but not without sacrifices.
Darkseid’s once pure innocent and caring red eyes turned into a crimsoned and darken red color full of hatred before he could be fully taken away, Urus interfered saving Darkseid by Denon’s direct orders. At first, they were mad that Darkseid didn’t even bother to mention his plans but soon their anger turned into worries, worrying about their brother and his well-being.
Only by a miracle, Darkseid managed to come back to himself and ensure his brethren that he was now safe and okay, but little did they know that it was just the beginning for him…[/details]

The War of the Vestals, 8.844 billion years after the Great Act.
Throughout this time Darkseid struggled with his inner demons, sometimes having dramatic episodes where he loses himself and becomes someone totally different, he has hidden this from his brethren for many billions of years but now it was time, time for Darkseid’s secret to come out.
However, when Darkseid was about to tell this to his brethren, he found out that they were needed back in Vestalia and because of that Darkseid refused to tell them after what he heard, he told them that it was nothing and that they should concentrate on their affairs and because no one was available besides Darkseid he took the burden upon himself to watch over the Multiverse and specifically the Universe where Earth was.
Apparently, the trip back home in Vestalia took more than just a few minutes, it felt like hours for Darkseid his constant pull to his evil self got stronger and stronger every time he tried to face it, Darkseid had a strong will, however, even the greatest of Titans one day submit and submit he did.
And from now on that day was the day where the old Darkseid died and the new one was born. He then lands on Earth, the mortals were living with themselves peacefully to his surprises, but when he continued to look through the fake facade he saw countless wars and unnecessary death and wrongdoings,
Yes they were some which tried to live a righteous and just life but the evil outgrow the good and for Darkseid, a small percentage of good compared to a big percentage of bad was not worth saving, so he uses powers first to destroy the earth and everyone living in it, he then continues to spread about the Destruction of the Multiverse, killing habitable planets after planets he seemed unstoppable the mortals which were found of Darkseid now angered at him as to why he did those things soon as well perished.
Darkseid was apologizing while he was destroying what he and his brethren so hard worked for, not even giving it a second thought. He explained that he found it to be necessary for mortal life was now a virus threatening Life itself and they need to die for they are a long way from redemption.
As all hope seemed lost the remaining twelve Vestals appeared, shocked and mad at the same time as to what Darkseid was currently doing, he tried to explain himself but Imera, his closest friend and once a love interest charges at him with anger in her eyes, he told her to forgive him as he opens his hands and from it came a powerful cosmic blast burning through her as she was then knocked out.
Before any of the other Vestals could react Vadus the Vestal of Time, he then snapped his fingers and so everything that Darkseid has done was undone, bringing every mortal life he took back from the dead, the mortals wouldn’t realize a thing only to have but a strange feeling inside them but then quickly returned back to what they were doing.
But Vadus’s attempt to bring everyone back succeeded yes but not without its fair consequence, his right arm which he snapped his finger with was severely burned and he was in a weakened state, thanks to Miros, Vadus’s pain was somewhat eased but his injuries didn’t disappear, because it took the power of Thirteen Vestals to create the Multiverse, the attempt of bringing a quarter of it back was even to the Vestals suicide.
Darkseid told them to stay back or there will be consequences for their ignorant actions, he explained himself and his view about the mortals, that they don’t deserve to live that they are now corrupt and it is Darkseid’s job now to keep the Multiverse the most beautiful place in existence safe and at all cost.
And then…a battle unraveled unlike the universe has ever seen, shots of dark, purple-ish colliding with the combined power of the ten remaining Vestals. Till this day many think that Darkseid was heartless when he battled his brethren, but that is not the truth, the battle hurt himself more than it did with his brethren. They were going back and forth at each other with none stopping, they were moving faster than the speed of light and sounds, from each shot they threw at each other a loud cracking sound could be heard and colorful waves of energy colliding against each other spreading through the Universe.
From a long and harden fought battle which appeared to have lasted a while, the remaining of all of the Twelve Vestals combined their powers for a final counter, this wave of a cosmic omnipotent blast, blasted through Darkseid, finally, the now so-called, Mad Vestal was finally defeated.
Unfortunately, they knew that they couldn’t kill Darkseid, even if they tried, it would go against their morals and code. Denon simply because out of mercy he decided with the vote of his brethren to imprison Darkseid in a specialized realm designed for sustaining Darkseid when they imprisoned him, he vowed upon his life that one day he will come back and that he will finish, what he has started.[/details]
[details=Roughly 300 years after the Darkseid Incident.]https://youtu.be/JnTplu65-0Q
Roughly 300 years after the Darkseid Incident.
The now renewed group of remaining Vestals called The Twelve did everything in their power to make it so that the Darkseid Incident did not happen, but they had to reveal the Truth to the Multiverse and now Darkseid is a well hated godly being.
Though not sure what it might have cost to save the Multiverse and banish Darkseid for good, at least there was peace ironically speaking since Darkseid was right about one thing, that the mortals are cursed and diseases, death, and other terrible things were cast down upon them, now it was a battle of survival, mind, and spirit, who would win? the good? or evil?
Those were the questions from the Vestals which sadly till this day are not answered, so Oros took it upon himself to find those answers and cure Darkseid and bring him back…for Imera, because she has never been the same ever since, heartbroken and depressed she hasn’t spoken a single word with them ever since the Incident happened.
Oros knew what he was going up against so he traveled through the Multiverse, through his traveling he met an old and very wise being, he was a mortal at that but a wise one nevertheless, Oros and this old man exchanged words but when the old man finally spoke up about something which Oros was seeking, it immediately caught his attention.
This old man spoked of a forgotten world, one that not even to the Vestals is known, the thought made Oros chuckle but the old man was right, this world was called the EndWorld and to find its mysteries and answers one must enter into the void and follow the path, this made Oros a bit skeptical at first and he asked if that was the only way to travel there and the old man said that it is the only way known.
Oros had no choice but to do it he said farewell to the old man and then he made his way into the void, at his surprise it did not attack him. For the Vestals the void was always strange to them one day it might attack them and the other day it wouldn’t even bother doing so.
Oros eventually finds the path, still skeptical if this is the true path to the EndWorld, one might say he just took a leap of faith and walked upon the path, from hours of traveling he would find a gate, he opens it and enters EndWorld.
EndWorld looked peaceful in its own way, big islands were floating randomly without purpose, on those floating island to each one there was a huge tall tree with yellowish tan color for leaves and the trunk was tan brown.
For a few quick moments Oros admired the view before turning his attention to what he has come here to do, to find answers that he seeks, the place was full with landscapes but it appeared to be more of a wasteland than anything else, nevertheless he still continued on with his search, eventually he entered into a large ravine, larger than him and very wide, 10 miles apart to be exact and in front of him in the distance, he would stubble upon The Forgotten Kingdom.
The greenish dark bushes were half as big as him and the Castle towered over him, it was much bigger than he was, it was as if a man was looking at a giant redwood tree.
To his attention, it accrued that the EndWorld seemed to be much bigger than he would originally have anticipated, he started to walk towards this Castle, underneath his feet there was water flowing pass through, he didn’t mind it and walked towards the gate, he touches it with his right hand and to his surprise it opened, revealing a long hallway with other gateways, but not just any other gateways, they assumingly looked like portals.
Oros just wondered why this place was not written in the ancient texts of the Vestals, what being in the universe wouldn’t want for them to know about a place such as this, so many questions and no answers.
As he looked around he found a much bigger portal than the rest, it was mostly a circle round shape and behind it there was a wall, the portal was deactivated, curiosity got the best of him so he tried to activate it but to no avail, this surprised Oros he then decided to walk away…but, the portal opened, the portal was closed for many thousands of billions of years, it needed some time to work fluidly again.
The portal’s gateway was mostly a mixture of green, light blue, and cyan, and from it, a swarm of different beings erupted from it as if they were locked into a prison and now that they are free they began evading it.
The swarm of unknown beings was so many that eventually through the long hall Oros and they got out of the Castle, Oros enraged by this unexpected event, he let out a powerful cosmic purging energy wave blast vaporizing some of them till they eventually stopped and landed on the ground and were eyeing the Vestal, the EndWorld had the effect of making each being the exact same equal size which to Oros was another unexpected surprise, he asked them who they are and then one of the powerful beings in the group, stepped out and spoke up.
He told Oros that they were the Kaethrani, energy beings which either live off of mortals by becoming their host bodies, absorbing energy from the sun or from the planet’s core, the origin was unknown even to them but he said that they come from a galaxy where the natural rules of physics did not exist and that they are going to achieve godhood and enslaving every mortal in existence to further their quest for power.
At that moment Oros has had enough and sends a black hole at the Kaethrani which they counter-attacked with their combined powers but Oros was a God, they were not, they were considered to be Demi-Gods but that is insignificant to a powerful being such as a Vestal.
The black hole sucked up a few waves of Kaethrani and so their battle continued for hours, they proved to be a real pestilence and that the only way to stop them is to eradicate them. Oros did not want this, but he knew when he saw evil and when to destroy it, eventually, the many hoards of Kaethrani were dying out and there was only half of what they originally were.
With a final act, Oros uses some of his true power to then create a massive explosion which blinded everything, in that time Oros closed the portal which allowed them to escape and then trapped the Kaethrani in EndWorld for good, Oros would find himself in his universe, he then immediately realized what happened, through the battle Oros did not realize that he was injured, he thought of it as a strange phenomenon, however, his true thoughts were on those beings which called themselves the Kaethrani, what if they would escape EndWorld? What if they get to their universe and bring about the Age of Chaos the Twelve so hard fought against?
Again that day brought many questions with little answers, but Oros knew that the Kaethrani wouldn’t be able to free themselves, they lacked godhood and even so Oros was waiting for them if that day will happen…
…in the dimension where Darkseid was trapped, he was sitting on his throne, he made this dimension a Kingdom rather than a prison, his red eyes opened and then chuckled, because of the Kaethrani now Darkseid had a plan, one that will succeed and one that will free him from his so-called prison, for him it was just a matter of time.[/details]
[details=Roughly 100 years after the Kaethrani Discovery]https://youtu.be/uGIu6-WtwEs
Roughly 100 years after the Kaethrani Discovery
Now it was the time to strike, Darkseid has grown very powerful in his imprisonment, now he did not fear EndWorld as his brethren did as he welcomed it, for it showed the truth of all things and now he is ready to accomplish and finish what he has so long started.
Darkseid stands up and walks away from his throne, he then used his powers to escape this prison he would meet two guards capable enough to face a Vestal, but now Darkseid was more powerful than they could imagine with a simple look at them, their heads explode.
He was then making his way towards EndWorld to free the Kaethrani, while he traveled there he remembered the years he endured, the years of hatred, pain, and suffering, from them all he mostly missed Imera but he now knew that she will never love him again, so he used that anger to better himself in the exile, healing his wounds and becoming more powerful than before he was the Reckoning the Vestals now feared, he will crush them under his foot and will become the True King of the Multiverse and rule upon it.
After his river of thoughts ended he arrived at EndWorld and landed in front of the Castle, he looked around only to find the Kaethrani were taking refuge there, somewhere trying to provide a plan to escape but to no avail, and that’s were Darkseid appeared before them. The Kaethrani wanted to fight right then and there but Darkseid stopped them with a single motion of his hand, he told them that he didn’t want to fight them but rather help them in achieving godhood, his words were now tempting the Kaethrani so much so it made Etar’s use of his silver-tongue powers a mere trick compared to the real thing.
The Kaethrani were about to accept it but not without some questions of their own as to what Darkseid could possibly want in return.
Darkseid told them that he only wants their complete obedience and loyalty to his side, he explained to them that his brethren have cast him out and turned against him and now he wants revenge and if they help, he will help them achieve the status as real Gods, and so the Kaethrani and the Dark Vestal had a deal.
He opened a portal and transported the remaining Kaethrani in his dimension, he told them that now his prison is now his Kingdom and that he rules over it and the Vestals now have no saying in it.
Darkseid did not waste any time and he quickly made use of the Kaethrani and in an unexpected visit the Kaethrani were causing havoc and destruction on Earth while Darkseid was fighting against Oros and the rest of the Vestals, he proved to be more capable in taking out the rest of his brethren even his love interest Imera, the dual between Darkseid and Oros was fast paste while they continued their battle on earth the Kaethrani were causing further bloodshed than needed, thankfully some heroes and other powerful races tried to keep up with them but they proved to be powerful than expected.
Darkseid and Oros seemed to be equal in strength their fight continued on which then rendered five whole universes completely into the void of life, Darkseid wondered how Oros could match his strength for so long but nevertheless, he was going to continue this battle till he won, before they could continue Cavmos appeared with an ancient book, they exchanged views towards each other, Darkseid questioned why Cavmos came back and he told him that their battle will destroy the Multiverse if they continued like this and so Cavmos opened the book and it showed that a truce is needed between them for the sake of Creation.
Darkseid was listening and so did Oros, the Accords are as followed: The Multiverse it’s the winner’s prize, however, Darkseid and Oros are not allowed to get themselves involved against each other for the sake of the Multiverse or else no one will ever be victories.
Darkseid wasn’t so quick to accept, Oros, on the other hand, did accept this. As it would seem Darkseid had no real choice but to accept because it was the ancient law of the Vestals and defying that it would defy his status as a God. Eventually, Darkseid and Oros came to an accord that one day they will battle again with everything they’ve got and that there will be only one winner till then there will be peace between them.
They both accepted and agreed on the accords, Darkseid teleported himself and the Kaethrani back to their dimension, the Kaethrani were enraged and demanded answers which in return Darkseid told them to calm down or else they will suffer his infinite wrath, he then began explaining that he had a plan, a plan which will make them win in the long run for he now understood that slow and steady wins the race…[/details]
[details=In the Present of the year 2017 - The Accords.]https://youtu.be/LML6SoNE7xE
In the year of 2017 - The Accords.
After these countless years of battle and suffering, there was peace, to say the least. The damage of Darkseid’s doing was repaired soon, the people started to forget about it, however, his actions will not be forgotten.
The Kaethrani sometimes attacked but were countered by a special force of devoted people called the Zenthronians which closely worked with the Vestal Oros.
And speaking of Vestals there was a new little addition to the Vestal’s group, Dormmamu the Vestal of Destruction, he might be kind at heart but his job is to destroy the universes which are corrupt and cannot be saved anymore, he lived for this and had no problem with it, he did the dirty work for the Vestals so to speak.
Though not very found of the mortals he still respected them but didn’t interact much with them in the course of history only when absolutely necessary. The Kaethrani at some point were stopped from causing destruction every once in a while since their forces were dwindling thanks to Oros, Dormmamu and sometimes the newly reformed group called the Furious.
They also got help from rouge Kaethrani which called himself, the Phantom Kaethrani and was responsible for the creations of the Requiem Warriors, very powerful beings which were created with one goal only to hunt down and kill the Kaethrani, sometimes they’ve been compared with the Kaethrani, in a way it made sense that they were somewhat similar to them because in the end the Requiem Warriors were created by a Kaethrani with the help of Oros of course and with only his guidance.
Only a few were chosen to become Requiem Warriors while the others were simply created by their creator and alas there are the Wraiths or Raths depends how you want to call them, they are zombie-like creatures but much much intelligent than one might think and their powers variate from mystical powers to energy or telekinesis.
Oros was having the most of hard times for he needed something to defeat Darkseid once and for all, though with sadness in his heart because every time he talked with Imera he couldn’t help but remember about him, he knew he wasn’t able to stop Darkseid, if the power of the combined Twelve Vestals didn’t stop him then what chance does he have against him?
Thoughts hit him like a river so he started to think, to think of a plan, the Multiverse needed a savior, and that savior couldn’t just be a Vestal because Vestals are not really humans. So when he looked into the pool of answers he saw a young man by the name of Connor but ultimately was named Scar had the potential of being that savior, however he was a long road away from godhood, with a bit of help he might achieve that status and bring about the end of Darkseid once and for all.
So from this day, Oros has been watching Scar, testing him and sometimes protecting him, he might have not been his first call but alas a somewhat of a plan is better than nothing.
Darkseid was planning as well, sometimes his fellow Kaethrani grew to be impatient and reckless in battle because of that, he told them that slow and steady wins the race in this but if they want to be wiped out from the face of existence then they are his guests to do so.
Darkseid lied to them that day, that the Kaethrani will become gods because he saw that they lacked to do what is necessary to become a god and that they didn’t have it in them but they were fooled enough to believe his lies and they continued serving him and doing his battle for him till one day the upcoming final battle the Armageddon of all things will begin…[/details]
