10. Black Tear Rebellion---- Humanity was enslaved by the Coil, and suffered their cruelty for ages, until a leader emerged and lead the humans in rebellion. He made them into an army, taught them to make weapons, cars, and clothing from the natural world. The man they called Riggnarok was so effective, the desperate Coil broke the seal on the Sea of Black Tears, knowing the allure and danger it had for humans. Those who drank first, intoxicated with power, renamed their uprising the Black Tear Rebellion. But madness eventually turned human against human and tore the movement apart. Riggnarok never gave in to the sorrow, and he alone survived. His rebellion crushed, he set off on one final mission to assassinate the Tainted emperor. He was never seen again.

11. Abomination Overdrive---- To ensure their dominance over the world forever, the Tainted Coil decided to hunt down the so called "future generations", and take back the wealth of knowledge so unfairly bequeathed to them by the Titans. They performed a ten-year ceremony of orgy and sacrifice that culminated with a gross perversion of time that sent their emperor - and their most bloodthirsty warrior - forward to the age of modern man. Along with the emperor, they sent along an idol of Ormagöden, which would return the traveler if a blood offering were made into its mouth. They also sent a small cadre of the emperor's slaves, not knowing that among them hid a murderous stowaway.

12. Maggots Devour the Corpse of Hope---- When Succoria arrived in the modern age, she made a horrible discovery - the future belonged to humans, not demons. They were the inheritors of the Titans' legacy, and their civilized world drained her of her spirit, her bloodlust, and her will to live.She could not return a failure, so she released her slaves and retired in defeat to a hidden cave. The stowaway, Riggnarok, stayed with her to complete his mission. But he could not bring himself to kill the pitiful, once-great warrior. Instead, he took care of her, and they became companions. Far away from their old world and its ancient battles, prejudices, and taboos, an intimacy developed, and then a coupling, and then, miraculously, a child. Its birth left Succoria lifeless, and Riggnarok took the child out of the cave, and raised him in the world of modern man, never telling him of his forbidden ancestry.

13. The Roadie---- Riggnarok lived out the rest of his life in peace, and when he passed, his son Edward found the idol of Ormagöden in his attic, mistaking it for a belt buckle. He wore it to remember his father, but when an accident let his blood fall into the beast's mouth, the spirit of Ormagöden was summoned, and the Fire Beast took Edward back in time to the Age of Metal. There, he found that his combination of roadie skills and demon blood allowed him -and him alone- to complete his father's mission: To slay the demon emperor, push back the flood of Black Tears, and fight for the freedom of his people and the glory of their Metal.
