Description[edit source]

The damned self-righteous URSA Corps, sanctimonious Paragons, Saviors, Invaders, and alien Artificers injecting Dark Matter into the veins of Newerth – Klanx had seen enough, especially after witnessing how easily they shattered his creations. After months of prowling the battlefields and salvaging what he could from these new classes of warrior, he retreated to his workshop and began to experiment. Klanx quickly realized there was only one entity on Newerth that could control the levels of destruction he'd uncovered – and she might even survive the experience.
He sent word to the powerful sorceress Artesia that he had found a way to resurrect her lost lover from the Vaults of All Hells – a lie, of course. When Artesia arrived brimming with new hope, Klanx quickly dashed it from her, subdued the sorceress (at the cost of many lackeys and stun grenades) and commenced siphoning her essence of arcane magic. The power was greater than he had hoped. It created an implacable consciousness within the evolving set of armor he had created, an awareness unencumbered by compassion or empathy. Klanx puffed with satisfaction; he had created the perfect weapon for destroying the endless rabble of factions, gods, and corps that all thought they were the answer to Newerth's tribulations. He had melded technology and magic into a terrible, singular arsenal, and he would enjoy watching her fulfill her purpose.
Then Artesia awoke, blasted the narcissistic megalomaniac through a wall and fled before she realized his creation was stirring, rising, and following.
