In another dimension, the battle for the world was not won by the forces of good and the demon spawn ravaged the world for centuries until every source of life was extinguished. As the demons fed upon each other, one of them rose to the top, Zhamet, deemed himself Lord of the globe, and turned it into an Inferno as he waged war upon those who could challenge him. But soon Zhamet ruled upon a shell of a planet, a black lifeless husk where the only forms of life were his legions of the Damned. He needed a new toy. Reaching across the infinite choices of time, the Demon King found Aardwolf and stretched forth a claw to touch the planet.
The followers of Zhamet were spreading like plague on Aardwolf, bringing his name and bloodshed along. They fought insanely, they slaughtered their enemies without mercy, they died quickly too. Over the years it was all the same. Some of the templar began to feel uneasy about that and among them Cho-Manno. He spent years in the temple library looking for a way to stop this madness. And he found it. Long time ago, during the war of demons, Zhamet defeated an opposing spirit called Ramos, who was fighting for the good and banished him to a dimension he could not leave. Secretly Cho-Manno gathered templars with similar opinion on Zhamet's acting and they performed a ritual to summon Ramos and succeeded. Zhamet was so focused on conquering more and more for his own that he haven't noticed the threat rising in his ranks. Ramos taught his followers skills that would help them against the dark minions and finally they launched a massive attack on Zhamet's fortress amidst the planes. Zhamet called his minions and soon the dark templar emerged from the warp gates and a large battle began. The rebels were heavily outnumbered, so they summoned Ramos himself to fight Zhamet and bring victory to their side. And so Ramos attacked Zhamet himself. After a long fight Zhamet managed to hit Ramos with a deadly blow and all seemed lost for the rebel Templar. But Ramos channeled all his remaining powers through his body and threw them at Zhamet. The godly essences fought in Zhamet's body, melted together killing both Zhamet and Ramos, and formed a new god, Dak'kon.
When their gods disappeared the templar stopped without breath. But soon the fight started again. Seeing this Dak'kon unleashed his unspeakable powers and all warriors froze at once. And he spoke to them with a voice of authority. He showed them that both holy fury and evil power lead only to death. He showed them that he is BOTH Zhamet and Ramos and that their kind will only survive if they fight together. He told them that it is only their faith that can keep him alive and their kind strong. He told them that he'll bring a new blood, heroes and villains, those that will help them restore their order. And so they started a new life. Shadow Wardens, Lightbringers and the Keepers of balance existed together, growing strong in faith to Dak'kon, performing rituals to his name and fighting those who dared to oppose them. And they grew more strong than ever before.
