|“|| Why do you try to stop me?
It was you who called me here.
I'm mankind in its purest form.
The world created me. You created me.
You wished for a reason, and I became real.
People needed a justification.
For pain. For sadness. For death.
There must be a reason for everything, people thought.
And they called me here.
Baal ("The Master"), its the Messanger XXI, one of the entities that will bring the end of the world. Born from the events from the War of God, people wished to be a justification of all suffering, grief and misfortune of mankind, and from that idea and the amalgamation of gods corpses and demons, Baal became real. Its the concept of evil that habitate in the Nexus of Souls, created by humankind to justify everything bad that happened to them.
Started to operate in Gaia during the year 479, consuming the personal hell from one of the Demon Kings and starting the 3rd Secret War, however, was defeated by the Emperor Elijah Giovanni, and sealed in the Arcane, severing any bound with the physical world. Over 500 years later, the Supreme Inquisitor Romeo Exxet tried to use it to power up Ergo Mundus in an attemp to bound all humankind under one controlable menance, nearly releasing it in the process; but was ultimately stopped by the Bearer of Calamities and the Messenger Ergo Mundus.
