After declaring himself Rom Nel, Theo has set out to subjugate the cosmos under a rebuilt Arkhan Empire. Stampeding across the stars, he and his armies leave little but ruins behind them.
On the eve of the Doom War, Joules of Arkhus stood atop a mighty empire. When the Apocolytes came, Joules and the Arkhanians fought with them against the Divine Order.
The Apocolytes were foretold to destroy the Divine Order and reign over the cosmos for a thousand years as Lords of Doom. Those who stood with them would be allowed special privileges under them until the end of the millennium, when the cosmos would die.
Joules led the Arkhanian armies while his brother Theo maintained order on Arkhus. At the final battle, Joules and the Apocolytes sieged the Holy City. Mighty Jenistaar, the Holy King delivered a crushing blow to their dark armies and in turn defeated the Apocolytes and the Arkhanians.
Joules while held prisoner proclaimed that the Apocolytes would be reborn, and the one who declares himself Rom Nel will conquer the cosmos and be the eternal Lord of Doom. After his decree, he was stripped of his natural energy, and was sent to his homeworld powerless to decay along with his empire. Joules died, the royal family was ousted, and Theodore was left with nothing. Arkhus fell apart and became a shadow of its former self.
A thousand years have passed since the end of the Doom War, seemingly out of nowhere Theo has reappeared claiming to be Rom Nel, the Arkhanians stand with him.
