    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    The demon known as Orcus controlled Myst which he ruled alongside his evil goddess wife. They were relatively indifferent rulers, except the wife like to interfere in the lives of the locals. One farmer on the verge of starvation begged for some relief and she appeared. She offered him bountiful harvest as long as he gave her one flower per year every year for seven years. When she returned to collect finally it became evident that she meant in fact one of his daughters, all of whom were sacrificed to add power to Orcus' own. When the time came to collect the seventh, the queen did not show, and the farmer thought she might not, but eventually she did. Before the daughter was fully killed a knight visited the farmer and heard of his plight. That knight was Shang. He rode to the castle to free the last daughter and was aided by seven ravens. These ravens contained the souls of the daughters. Against strong odds, he bested the two and the daughters were returned to life. The youngest daughter was given to him as a bride for his heroic effort. This daughter was Alexxa.

    Orcus later took part in the siege of Myst where numerous evil forces converged to attempt to invade Earth.
