Over many years the Rebellion grew. The enraged King Tusk ordered his army of the Bears to rampage throughout the countryside, pillaging and destroying any community suspected of harboring Vitalis and his followers. However, the resistance raged on. In their final attempt to crush the Rebellion, the King and the Council recruited dark forces. A shapeless creature, formed from pure despair and misery of those suffering throughout the Empire, was sent to kill any connected to the crystal. This entity known as Sec, passed through the Realm silently killing all in its path.
