So by the time that stuff happened, there was a whole Witch ordeal (involving Malojos and Serulenia, who were Witches Khrona killed in the past but 'thought' them back into existence from his dreams when he could not keep anything in his head), which in turn became the catalyst for another Witch event (involving Medusa and Arachne who were killed later, but as Medusa does, she never stays dead), and eventually the Kishin rose again. This time, though, his presence was on the moon and he manipulated Insanity across the world from up above.
With all this craziness happening, Zita decided to go into the Enigmatic Ruins, feeling a powerful force awakening within, and found the entire history of her heritage, and also found out that she was related to Maze and Khrona. After finding this out, she called Maze, Khrona and Rozalyn to come check it out, and they all learned about the ancient past, as well.
Meanwhile, taking advantage of this time, Evangeline, in her studies, caught wind of a being known as 'Nebulon,' and pulled him from the Cauldron of empty space. Once he was within Vescrutia's air, Luminon once again became active, as his purpose was to fight against Nebulon. While all this happened, Evangeline was confronted by Medusa, who had recently collected Kuja in her plans to keep the Kishin alive. Thus, the three of them went on their way, whilst Nebulon became caught up in fighting Luminon.
While it was a good plan, the only downfall was that he was sensed by Khrona, Maze, Hakku and Sado. The Insanity, once again, threw Khrona into Insanity, however he was learning to contain it. He said that he would become the 'Keeper of Insanity' so that he would be able to control all Insanity so it never had such adverse effects on him again. Maze, still wanting to protect his brother from the Insanity, fought him until they reached the moon, and when they did, they caught wind of the Kishin. Using Khrona for his escape, the two brothers continued to fight whilst the Kishin descended on the mostly defenseless Dusk Village, threatening to drop Vescrutia's moon on it. Naturally, Hakku and Sado, the remaining village officials, did not allow this. Oh yeah, and Rozalyn came back from that other world and brought some people back with her, so she was there, too, fighting the Kishin.
Though for a while, it seemed like things were going well, by the time the moon was about to crash, Hakku and Sado had killed the Kishin. Or, so they thought. What they would find would be Maze and Khrona's corpses on the ground where the Kishin was supposed to lay, which threw them into despair. However, this was another trick of Insanity that allowed the Kishin to escape, even with Hakku purifying the Insanity. This was because way off in the Chaos, Medusa and her Colleagues of Evil had created these black obelisks around the Dusk with the Master Tower located in the Chaos that they were using to perpetuate Insanity and make the Kishin immortal. When Maze and Khrona were found out to be alive, Rozalyn and Rion, the former Kages of the Depths, insisted on assisting in this endeavor. So, the four original Kages of their respective villages went off to fight the Evil Trio.
Meanwhile, Luminon and Nebulon's fight went on until they met with Mahk-X, who used the Power Cosmic to fight them. Though the three were evenly matched against each other, it was realized that Luminon and Nebulon (Remember, are parts of Pumki and Pumpkinhead, respectively) were two parts of two similar beings. Thus, with Mahk-X's help, Luminon and Nebulon merged into one being to become Mugenon, and quickly left Vescrutia in an attempt to right what was wrong. However, because they could not find Pumki, Nebulon eventually got consumed by Luminon and became Lumiel, later down the line.
In any case, Rozalyn and Rion fought the evil trio for a while, and surprisingly, their powers ended them in a stalemate. When Maze and Khrona arrived, Kuja took it upon himself to fight Maze alone in an alternate dimension known as the 'Crystal World,' where the power of the Crystals was shown for the first time. Khrona, Rozalyn and Rion fought against Medusa and Evangeline, though even with Khrona as an addition and their loss of one man, it was still roughly even between them. That was when they figured out that they had to destroy the Master Tower in order to defeat them, so that is what they did. Within the Crystal World, the two master mages fought a brutal battle, but it ended in a stalemate and Maze requesting that Kuja turn to the side of good. Though Kuja respected Maze's power, he ultimately rejected the idea and took them back to the normal world once the power of the Master Tower had been destroyed.
But this was all according to the snake Medusa's plan.
Once the Master Tower fell, it not only spread utter Insanity across the entire planet, but also caused a powerful flux in the Cauldron to release the one who was trapped within... Grimlock. Once he escaped, he brought with him 'The Forgotten One,' 'The Forbidden One' and 'The Fallen One,' each one of which were incredibly powerful deities that were lost within the Boundary Between Dimensions, which just so happened to be the world of the Devourists.
Though the Forgotten One and the Fallen One were not originally native to the Devourist world, the Forbidden One, who was Li-Grim, was the ruler. It seemed as though Grimnis had restored her power to when she was Li-Grim, and thus, along with her son, Grimlock, brought terror upon the world with the other two deities. She sent the Forgotten One over to the Dusk, the Fallen One to the Chaos, and herself to the recovering Neo-Nightmare. Grimlock, himself, took over the Dusk and became ruler, since Khrona had gone AWOL, wanting to change the village from behind the scenes rather than up front, since his people did not know how to really defend themselves against such a threat. THus, he took on the persona of 'The Phantom' right before Grimlock's rule.
As he did, Khrona snuck to talk to Zeik, repaying him a visit from before, coming to warn him about impending doom and impending rebirth of all things that was soon to be. The two fought until the edge of the Cosmos, until finally, with the light of the Kin Cannon that connected the two's hearts and souls on the level of Kin, and the Paradise Peer, Khrona showed Zeik what would flourish from this darkness. He showed him a glimpse of what would later become the Dawn, and what would later become the Astral Chaos and the Neo-Nightmare, and the two prepared themselves for what was to come.
Once Grimlock was in power, he did nothing but attempt to help them and try to train them to become stronger, however they all widely failed. They were a lost people who knew nothing of what they wanted, power-hungry, childish and ultimately foolish. He realized that this came from them being so sheltered by their Kages, who always did everything for them, and thus never let the people grow.
With this, he knew that there was no hope for the people of the Dusk, for they were all simply weak, sniveling children, and it brought shame to his heart. So, he threatened to destroy the planet with these three great deities. The Fallen One had power over Life and Death, and thus took the seat in the middle of the transition of souls to block Souls from cycling out of death after they died, which indeed trapped people in Hell. The Forbidden One had control over all dreams and Wishes, and thus simply wished to grant hers and everyone else's wishes in a world that was falling to pieces. Finally, the Forgotten One had no form, and thus appeared as a giant eclipse upon the Dusk that simply destroyed anyone or anything that got close. It released terrible beings on the Dusk known as 'fal'Cie' and 'Undying Ones' that needed to be cleaned up by the Eight Warriors, though many of them, (being untrained due to being sheltered by Khrona and company) died in battle. They fulfilled their cause, yes, but at the cost of their lives.
Eventually, Megaera (Khrona's sister, I'll put her more in the story later, yaddayadda) and Dente met up with Mahk-X in Hell, as they were sent to destroy The Fallen One. When they did, they were thrown into despair because he was a being that could not die, but also did not life; a master of Life and Death itself, caught in between. Hence why he was the 'Fallen One.' When they finally figured out how to defeat him, Mahk-X broke down his power whilst Dente and Megaera delivered the final blow, and the power of Life and Death gave all of them rebirth into new beings, and Megaera became Corona Tensei, whose holy swords held the power of Life and Death. With them being given new life, they were able to escape Hell, though Mahk-X chose to fight his family that had become Kishin in order to save them. With a hearty goodbye, Dente and Corona returned to the Dusk.
At the same time, Atra and ZK fought against The Forbidden One, finding that nothing could work against one who manipulated dreams and wishes. Thus, when she fired at them the beams of the Beginning and the End (Alpha and Omega), instead of being destroyed, the two went through a rebirthing realization process the same as what happened with Mahk-X and company with The Fallen One. Thus, the two gained the knowledge of everything being made new, which was what The Forbidden One truly wanted. After this, a piece of herself sent as an envoy of Vescrutia long ago, named Friday Malfortuna XIII (Or, The Friday the Thirteenth Fairy) was absorbed back into her body so that she could become complete, and became the Queen of Dreams and Wishes in her rebirth. With her wish fulfilled, she went to the Dusk to find the other fragments of her body, and awaken them from slumber whilst ZK and Atra did what they needed to do to create the Neo-Nightmare.
With the Forgotten One, eventually it came in contact with Evangeline's presence, which drew it toward her granddaughter, Chita Lombardi. This is because Evangeline embedded a great deal of her magical potential within Chita, which the other half was located within Parace, her Light self. When The Forgotten One came in contact with Chita, she recognized her heritage and returned to being Parace, and granted her granddaughter the rest of the magical potential that would complete her being a true, full Witch. Afterwards, Parace told Chita everything about what was going on, and inevitably vanished, since she didn't have a true form. She still sought out Evangeline to merge back with her, but such could not happen because once again, Evangeline went into hiding, leaving her light to be without shape or form even still.
