Colossus Episode 1
I. There is a realm that is pre-creation and pre-reality, a region composed of pure energy and whose only governing law is chaos and from this place all else flows forth. This realm is populated by beings of incomprehensible power called the Colossals and these Colossals call this world the Continuum. Throughout endless millennia the Colossals have engaged in never ending warfare with one another to establish order from the chaos that has reigned in eternity.

The Colossals however were not equal in their power and this imbalance guaranteed the chaos would continue, additionally, and no two Colossals would surrender their command in order to join forces with another. The fate of the Continuum was in the hands of the winner of a single combat battle and the victor would reign until challenged and deposed. Then the cycle would repeat and no matter which Colossal won a contest there were always more challengers awaiting the outcome.

At one point a particularly powerful Colossal named Cintieff was one of those challengers and he fought a single combat against the then holder of power and was victorious, giving him command of the Continuum. Cintieff’s rule was longer then any other previous Colossal, as he could not be supplanted, having survived numerous challenges. He was an imbalance in the Continuum. Not only was Cintieff’s rule lengthy, it was also harsh as he saw the maintenance of his power best guaranteed by bending the will of all the other Colossals to his way. He did not do what had been done before and await the challengers but sought them out and conquered them.

Cintieff’s rule was unpopular and although endlessly challenged he defeated them all and could not be removed. He came to be seen as a tyrant by the Colossals he ruled over and eventually they decided that Cintieff was too powerful, his rule too extreme and that he threatened the Continuum by his actions. Thus they decided to work together to defeat Cintieff and so they fell upon him unaware and he was finally vanquished. This act however had set a new precedent where a Colossal could be removed from power by the combined efforts of a group of Colossals and so alliance was born and the balance of the Continuum was forever altered.
