As the trouble-ridden world
came to accept the unity between the empowered IMP units and the
power wielders, new trouble was stirred from within the bowels
of the Great Desert.
demons, Satana and Aecrueil Ftaghn, strode into the desert,
where they discovered an ancient monolithian tomb from many
millienia ago. After playing devilish tricks on the magical
voice that guarded the tomb, they extracted a man ... a Human
... who had apparently resided there for more than 10,000 years.
An evil spirit relinquished his body, and after shattering the
last defenses the magical spirit had at its command in a pulse
that was felt around the world, the trio strode off to unfold
their evil plans.
Stefan Asteriadis, the
warrior priest, was the first to arrive on the scene. He
interrogated what remained of the bound magical spirit, and
discovered the horrifying nature of the man who was released.
His name was the Souldrinker, and at one point in time, he'd
nearly managed the extinction of mankind. Setting the tortured
soul to rest, the Padre set off to quell the archdemon, before
his plans came to fruition.
He was too late,
however, for the man showed, with his demonic cohorts, and
attacked a small frontier village in the middle of the desert.
Merely identifying himself as Yake, he slew innocent townsfolk
by plunging his sword into their bodies and removing their
immortal souls without leaving so much as a scratch on their
bodies. These lifeless, pale bodies were soon called the
"bloodless comatose" by the press.
the presence of the powerful Crimson Kasima, Yake could not be
defeated. However, neither were Crimson and his allies defeated.
Despite his attacks, which were far too slow and weak to even
phase the Super Saiyan, Yake took on the full brunt of a
Kamehameha attack and survived without even a little damage. In
fact, he took the powerful assault's energies and unleashed them
right back at Crimson, sending the warrior reeling. This seemed
to leave Yake weakened, however, and his cohorts immediately
came to his side to teleport him away from heroic hands.
Yake struck twice
more, in equally remote towns, though growing ever more bold in
his assaults. In his third encounter, his power had nearly
doubled from his first sighting. He had decided to take on a
city nearly half the size of South City. Power wielders swamped
him and his comrades, like flies on garbage. Even the good Padre
finally managed to catch up with him, playing a pivotal role in
the battle with his holy powers, which benefitted his allies
grandly. More and more of these do-gooders arrived to repel the
quickly rising threat, and though Yake's powers were impressive,
the powers of good ultimately thwarted his intents, and left
them at all but a stalemate. Finally, Yake caused an enormous
explosion triggered by a powerful exorcism that an ascended
Asteriadis performed, which revealed that the annoying villain
had far darker ties than his emotionless demeanor let on.
frustrated with his troubles with the power wielder community,
Yake began to target them specifically, as individuals. One man
was slain in the desert when Yake ambushed him and ran him
through with his sword. Another man, the well-known Cesto
Sphalerite, was absorbed when he was out training in the woods.
This absorption finally triggered the enormous transformation
that he'd been gunning for the entire time. After a display of
demonic strength that raped the minds of people everywhere, and
sucked dry nearly a fourth of Earth's population of their souls
without exclusion to the power wielders, the ultra-demon Yakeoni
was born. Not even Padre Stefan could stop him, now. This was
the fabled demon king of ancient times, who'd slain entire
nations with his horrible sword.
Meanwhile, on the
planet of New Vegeta, a civil war was unfolding. Rumors were
spreading like wildfire that Vegeta, the legendary Prince of
Saiyans, had risen from his public mausoleum, where he had been
lying in state in the Saiyan capital. Simply the suggestion of
his resurrection, and the emptiness of his tomb, led the
empire-loyal civillians to lead an attack on the monarchy-loyal
military and palace of the residing King, Naiako. The royal
family was forced to flee New Vegeta, as the King had suddenly
contracted a viral heart disease, in the midst of the siege, and
had to receive urgent medical attention.
In the depths of HFIL,
Yakeoni arrived, and with his long-time influential partners in
crime, they carved a bloodbath of a war straight through the
heart of the unholy central nervous system. The battle was
short, and terrible. In the end, the King of Hell, Melchiah, was
evicted from his paradimensional reign, and the ascended demon
gained control over all demons, everywhere.
With them, he
proceeded to ransack metropolis after metropolis, with little
trouble. The heroic men and women of power resisted him to the
bitter end every time, but they simply could not phase the
great, evil knight and his demonic army. What was worse, such
power was being displaced by each individual battle, that it
managed to rip straight through the continuum of reality,
leaving indescribable blobs of utter void where cities once
As the termed Null
slowly ate the world alive as well as the surrounding galaxy,
the final war was waged on the last Human city, Central Capital.
Almost all human life had been lost. Power wielders, companies,
and mortals alike were swallowed into utter non-existance. Even
the dragonballs were consumed. With the addition of a large army
of Saiyan warriors led by the resurrected Vegeta, there was
simply nothing that the power wielders could do to save
themselves. Demons and Saiyans overwhelmed the entire city and
set it afire. People struck out with terrific powers at their
unwelcome invaders, if for no other reason than to justify their
existence to the Null, which now had swallowed almost all of
Earth and most of the galaxy surrounding, as well as countless
that was seemed to pivot on this small island of chaos. At last,
the unthinkable happened... Yakeoni and Vegeta met. Though their
armies were enemies on the battlefield, they clashed together
and fused, in an explosion so great that almost all life was
exterminated on the spot, all buildings crushed. Only a few
fighters survived to view what resulted ... the King of
Essential Evil ... the Plague of Existence ... Oujakuma. His
goal was clear. He wanted to exterminate everything, everywhere.
Not the demons, not the fighters of good, not the land he stood
on, not even his own body would be safe from the ravages he
promised. He was the endorsement of the Null -- it was in his
plan the entire time.
At that point, Raimei
Roshi-ni made a last ditch effort, and appeared at the scene of
the apocalypse. Until this point, not a single person had seen
the mystic teacher of Neo Kame in action. He had always been a
calm and collected soul who gave advice to his students and
played passive roles in the world-shaking events that had gone
But when he called
upon the power of the Kais to aid him, he showed his true power,
combatting the evil Oujakuma. Their motions were so fast, that
none could even pick up glimpses of them. Their power was so
great, simple body movement send showers of rubble flying off
the remaining island. Their hits were so great that they were
heard in what little remained of the known reality, dimensions
away. No number could describe the two-entity war that raged.
Even Raimei had his
limits, however. Oujakuma took damage, but only healed it in the
next moment. The teacher easily stood his ground, but in time,
he would tire and wear, as is the penchant for all mortal
beings. It was then that Raimei decided that it was only just
for a sacrifice to be made, if one had been made to bind the
inexplicably evil epitome. Raimei gathered into his soul the
essence of a Kai, and with it and his body, and the assistance
of the spirit of Yake's long dead wife, a new reality was
created where evil would never even be defined, where he and the
Master of Cruelty would be bound for all and on.
the horrible battle was over. However, it had undone all that
was. What little remained simply crumbled away. The Ultimate Kai
made an appearance, speaking to the spirits of the brave power
wielders who had fought against such uncanny odds. For them, he
crafted a new reality, and a new Earth, with new beginnings and
No mortal would
remember the events of Yake, even after they had been
resurrected. Even many power wielders, after the Redefinition,
claimed obliviousness on the matter. Those who did, however, all
seemed to carry a simple necklace, which held a small sphere.
Inside the sphere, was a hologram of the Earth from space,
during the moments where the Null's ravages had just begun to
forgetfulness was for the best, as some who survive now wish
they did not have to remember the horrid events of Yake, Yakeoni,
