Sethe is an omnipresent force of death and pestilence that has caused all the major plagues that have ravished human kind from the beginning of time. Sethe, along with his armies of the dead, have fought against the green since the moment life and death became real, with each side using animals and creatures from the current time period (ex. zombie dinosaurs and plant based mammals and reptiles.)
