The Dark One was a warrior king of the Omniverse, a place before existence. He built a great machine that would pierce the heavens, transporting him into the realm of the creator fire. Unfortunately the machine was damaged during a great battle and became unstable, causing a cataclysmic event that destroyed the Omniverse. Caught up in the quantum explosion, he was violently split into two separate entities! His counterpart is lost to the newly formed multiverse. The Dark One Stands at 8 feet tall with a foreboding horn upon his head. He now remains in a pocket dimension full of misery, destruction, and death, with a toxic atmosphere that cannot sustain normal human life. As a result of another cataclysmic event on Earth, involving Quantum entanglement, he has the ability to breach into our world, though he cannot survive outside of his own dimension for very long due to the dramatic atmospheric shift. He has, over time, developed some tolerance for our oxygen rich environment, but only for a few hours. Therefore he relies heavily on mercenaries, minions, and political puppets to do his bidding in our world.
