The Folly of the Gods
"Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none."
Known as The Flame Lord and The Everwatching, Apophis is an elder evil, a primordial from the time before time. He is the progenitor of fire, and appears as a giant eye wreathed in flame.
The Heralds of the Stars are agents of Apophis, working to find a way to usher his return to the mortal plane, that he might incinerate the impure life that dwells there and recreate reality in his own vision.
