Behold the death of your world. There, cresting the horizon. Yes, that faint body is he, and he comes for me . . . for us all. Rejoice, for the end is near, and all life, all pain, all suffering shall be silenced in the perfect eternity of undeath.

A primordial force, Atropus once was an entity in the primeval void that existence sprung from. In order for the multiverse to take shape there must be an act of death so that other life is created. With this being's death sprung the Gods who shaped reality. However this did not fully kill Atropus, who instead became the afterbirth of creation. The antithesis of the gods, Atropus draws its power from the infinite void of the Negative Energy plane. Atropus' goal is to undo its first and greatest mistake. It moves around the universe, destroying everything in its path until it eventually destroys all mortal life therefore erasing the gods, and so itself, from the multiverse.
