    Dalgos Virzu’ud is a shadow demon of the realm of Ostwyn. He became the general of the Shadow Legion, but proved to the council that he was too reckless and barbaric to lead. So they banished him to the In-Between, a formless world that connects all realms and dimensions.

    Years passed. Through an accident, his mind came into contact with a human in the realm of Earth who was dying. A deal was made, and Dalgos possessed his body, giving him new life. In return for keeping him alive, this man had to allow Dalgos to take control, come out, and begin his scheme.

    Dalgos began building an army. In addition to human hires, he began mixing demon magic with human science to create superpowers. Weapons. But all of these smaller goals are nothing in comparison to his ultimate goal. Once his machine is finished, he will summon the Ozrokon, a deformed legion of demons from Ostwyn with the power to reshape matter. Dalgos plans to use them to shape Earth in his own image and create a new race of demons. And when he’s done he will use them to invade Ostwyn and destroy the ones who banished him, making him ruler of both realms.

    The Ozrokon:

    Red Malice is considered to be the most dangerous supervillain in the United States. It is not because he is powerful, in fact his powers are not very impressive. Instead, it is because of his feats and his mind. He has a near genius-level intellect and is extremely cold and calculating. In addition, his main business is in human experimentation. It is estimated by the Department of Superhuman Affairs and the Department of Defense that his experiments created around 30% of supervillains in the country. Nobody knows why he has been building an army.

    For his powers, Red Malice has some kind of heightened strength and a limited healing factor. He also has the ability to summon an array of weapons from a pocket dimension known as The Vault. His weapon of choice is a large double-ended axe. His fighting skill is incredible, and he has taken down superhero teams singlehandedly with relative ease.

    As stated, nobody knows what his goal is, but many speculate he desires to control the entire market of supervillains and remove all superheroes, linking everything to himself.
