The Grandchild of the Apocalypse
One thousand years after this division
The third God created by Kaai’ Xenthoth,
A narcissistic and impulsive child
Called Muskurak, who held such disdain for
His immature siblings, and for Xenthoth’s
Order, that he encased his body in
An armoured veil, a monstrous mask and
A bejewelled exoskeleton, so that
Nothing that He sneered at could ever taint
His precious flesh. Muskurak was seduced
By promising whispers of power that
Seeped through Bloc from Pralmordion’s mad lips.
Ruptured open Bloc’s skin from the inside
Which unleashed a massive torrent of Chaos,
To which Muskurak opened up his soul
Forming a blasphemous union with the
Latter, warping his shape into Madness.
Wedded as he was to Pralmordion,
Muskurak was reborn with the power
To conjure up twisted Chaos Demons
From his twisted Chaos Heart. Muskurak
Summoned a legion of this Chaos spawn
Before sharing this power with his mate:
Ashiki, who is now known to all as
The Mother of all Mayhem, for she blessed
The traitorous Muskurak with three sons,
Loathsome fusions of cursed flesh and Chaos.
These three sons became their generals, their
Spies and most devoted acolytes from
Their very first accursed breath. Ashiki’s brood.
The Eldest was Soloss, the Cursed Winged Snake.
Soloss relished deception, he was the
Embodiment of a mirage most cruel
And could lure Angels and mortals to their
Deaths with his eyes and tongue alone. When one
Heard the hideous beating of his wings
Weapons were abandoned and hope was lost.
The Middle son was mockingly titled
Kaai’ Doth, though he had done nothing to earn
The Divine rank of “Kaai’”. This perversion
And shameless strand of humour suited Doth,
Who was a shape shifter and took on forms
That were amalgamations of many
The youngest of the three evil children
Was the Cosmic Spider, Feste’ Talon,
He adored malice and murder and his
Father before anything else. His webs
Burnt like the flames of a star and there was
No limit to his sadistic nature.
This Alliance of Pandemonium,
Supported by Muskurak’s Chaos hordes
Warred with Xenthoth and His Nine Avatars
With unprecedented ferocity.
For nigh on three hundred years they besieged
The Ordered Universe and they butchered
Many celestial beings in the
Process, until Xenthoth’s Avatars, with
The assistance of the Parent Gods, the
Angels, the Evilion Shifters and
The Star-Dwellers defeated the Chaos
At the great Battle of the Crimson Star.
The Demons were purged, Ashiki and two
Of her sons were exiled into darkness,
While the Middle Son was ruthlessly slain
Muskurak was imprisoned inside a
Gaol carved from the corpse of Kaai’ Xenthoth’s eighth
And most powerful Avatar, Varoth.
After this devastation there was quiet
Inside the Ordered Universe, aside
From some remnants of Muskurak’s Demons.
And the clashes of the Saints and Witches
And the horrific, grief stricken keening
Of Vermorkorah as she mourned Varoth.
