Background Story Edit
For eternity, Baalon, the King of Demons, was filled with hatred and loathing towards God...
Convinced that serving God only imprisoned and robbed him of his free will, Baalon broke loose from the heavens to claim his independence from his creator. Believing that human beings were nothing more than inherently inferior creatures controlled by their sinful desires, Baalon sought revenge by plotting to enslave all of humanity, God's most precious creation.
In order to execute his sinister task, Baalon created the Gate Stone which granted him the ability to enter different worlds, leaving the human world defensless and vulnerable. Immediately, Baalon set his sights on wreaking havoc and destruction on the inhabitants there, enveloping the Esior Continent into unrelenting tragedy.
The realm of Hades, unable to care for the growing swarm of deceased spirits clamoring for eternal rest, was desperate to end this bitter massacre. In order to restore order back to the human world, they sent a mercenary troop comprised of their best warriors called Zero Force to wage war against the Sinistry of Devil of Demon King Baalon. Although they fought valiantly, Zero Force was lamentably defeated and Esior fell into the hands of the Sinistry of Devils. With no one left to oppose them, the Sinistry of Devils easily infiltrated and seized control of the human world. Although the number on the Sinistry of Devils was few, they cruelly exercised their supremacy deep within the cities of countries, transforming treacherous traitors into their loyal subjects and brave generals to insignificant beggars. Gripped my the wickedness of the Sinistry of Devils and plagued by the recent attacks of monstrous creatures, humanity found no relief in sight and suffered in endless turmoil.
Despite enduring infinite pain and sorrow, human beings fiercely hoped for the arrival of a hero to drive out their foreign invaders and bring back peace. Fortunately, a famous prophet names Jexius received a vision from God and delivered this hopeful message:
"The Holy King will rise from the desolate island to cleanse the blood of the filthy and erase the dark shadow that looms over all humanity."
According to the prophecy, anyone who wishes to be saved from this torturous hell must await the arrival of the Holy King who will be the WonderKing, who will save the world from darkness.
