Ekimus and his race were created before man but were ignored by God because they did not possess a soul and were replaced by God's new creation Man. Lucifer taking advantage of the Grigori rejection persuaded the Grigori race to join his army to rebel against God. Ekimus was made a Lieutenant of Lucifer's army and fought against God and his army only to be defeated by God's army surviving the war. As punishment for their uprising the Grigori and Dragons were sentenced by God to guard the Tree of Life in a desolate desert until the time they would be redeemed in God's eyes. Ekimus escaped God's sentence and instead wondered the world alone cursed by God Ekimus was forced to feed off of flesh and blood to maintain his immortal existence. Bitter and alone he came upon another of God's failed creation named Lilith both looking for comfort and not wishing to be alone mated and created the 1st vampires Ekimus passing God's curse to their offspring.
Ekimus soon realized what he had done and did not wish to compound his sins and instead chose a life of seclusion, redemption and to find a way to undo what he had brought into the world. Ekimus donned priestly robes and gave himself the name Ekimus and became a recluse living in an old abandoned church. During one of his night excursions he came upon Rose the Puppet and her vampire gang called the Jelly Bats while they were feeding, He managed to drive them away and save one of the survivors and feed him his own blood creating a new Vampire that he would often refer as the Chosen One. The survivor of the vampire attack was Alex Elder whom Ekimus would take back to his church and help guide him in hopes that he would be the one to help him rid the world of the curse he brought into the world.
