    Three neutral cosmic entities.

    Cosmic Entities: Neutral cosmic entities.
    ...however, "good" and "evil" are often seen as worthless conceptualizations by those who stand astride whole galaxies. Here are three cosmic entities that don't care a single whit about "good" and "evil":
    The Bringer of Fire: The goddess of fire.
    Crunch writeup:
    PLX/3340pp. The imperiex of the Green Star universe, as well as the greatest pyrokinetic in the Green Star universe. The Bringer of Fire is fire; at her command, stars ignite or die; galaxies spin off their axies, and gamma ray bursters scourge whole sectors of life. She is also a powerful telepath and potent telekinetic, but the fire is, and always will be, her greatest talent.

    The Bringer of Fire is an ascended Stonebuilder, but she feels no loyalty to her people or their legacy: no, she is content to indulge, creating or destroying at whim. "Good" and "evil" are irrelevancies to she who can forge or break asunder galaxies.

    The Bringer of Fire watches events on Earth from her "throne" on the sun's surface. Serving her are humans-turned-thoughtforms known as the luminscent sages.

    The Mediating Voice-of-Two: The greatest unleashed mind of all.
    PL18/510pp. The greatest telepath in the Green Star universe, the Mediating Voice-of-Two is actually a dual being: a non-sentient behemoth without a functioning brain, and a purely psionic thoughtform that permanently "pilots" the above-mentioned ur-beast.

    His body obsessed with violence but his mind a thing of peace and tranquility, the Mediating Voice-of-Two continually walks the line between utter hypercarnage and serene inaction. In fact, so divided is he on this matter that these are the ONLY two emotional states he is even capable of!

    The Mediating Voice-of-Two carefully observes the drama on Earth by serreptitiously tapping into the Many's Q-lines, from his home in the Andromeda Galaxy.

    The Sky Machine: The storm of storms.
    PL18/550pp. The greatest robot weather controller in the Green Star universe, the Sky Machine is an Architect superweapon. Fitted with a massive quantity of L-imbued psicrystals, controlled by an AI modeled off the brain of Ancient-Supreme Glorianna Lux, and devout to the cause of the Great Imperium, the Sky Machine is a ruthless destroyer.

    Strangely, the Sky Machine has never been deployed during the first two Earthly Purgings, despite the obvious advantages of doing so...

    It might be a good idea to get a table of contents in the op. This thread is getting pretty in-depth.

    LOL NO, not really. I'm just fleshing out the setting. The DCU has Doomsday, Darkseid and a whole bunch of other world-shattering threats, but that doesn't mean Nightwing runs into a Lord of Order or a Lord of Chaos...it just means such entities exist.

    The Obsidian Man and the Obsidian Woman.

    The Ebon System:
    Off-limits to all save the Ancients, the Ebon System is a mysterious solar system near the very edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. By Ancient decree and enforced by a mysterious device known as the Worldeater, the Ebon System is forbidden to all but a select few. Using technologies considered blasphemous if used anywhere else in the Great Imperium, the Ancients have "psi-cloaked" the entire solar system...nothing can be discerned of the Ebon System by those outside the Ebon System. Many civilizations aren't even aware the Ebon System even exists, let alone is interdicted.

    But within the Ebon System lurks a pair of horrors as old as time, itself...

    The Obsidian Man: Entropy, embodied.
    He hungers, anew. Long ago, he fed as he pleased, and cared not one whit for the celestial consequences. He took as he pleased and none could stop him. But, in time, he grew bored, and fell to sleep.

    For a very long time did he slumber; the universe breathed a sigh of relief, for it seemed their nightmare had finally ended...but alas, such hopes were woefully unfounded. Starry undead, in a timeline that now no longer
    Is, conquered the Green Star universe and foolishly attempted to consume the Obsidian Man. These undead jackals did not survive their predatory attempt as cosmic cannibalism.

    But the damage was done, and the Obsidian Man awoke, even after that chain of events
    Was Not. The Green Star universe was again his playground....but again, only for a time.

    You see, two imperiex---nigh-omnipotent higher-order intelligences---came to this universe to put an end to the Obsidian Man and his evil. A battle most fierce ensued.


    The Obsidian Man helped the Obsidian Woman create the Nameless Beast. Placeholder.

    The Obsidian Woman: The ultimate winged huntress.

    Teams

    The Red Rose Brotherhood:
    A secret society well entrenched in Holy Mother Church for over a hundred years now, the Red Rose Brotherhood is a sinister-seeming cabal of bishops, cardinals and prelates all devoted to the extermination of all those touched by the Green Star. It possesses enormous wealth, and even has secret ties to various Protestant movements---why not use the devil to fight the devil?, they reason---but the main weapon they use is the feared Red Hand.

    The Red Rose Brotherhood has chapterhouses throughout Catholic strongholds all over Christendom, and they own much land and boast great influence.

    While the Red Hand serve a useful purpose, they're not terribly subtle. I have fixed this with the Red Rose Brotherhood...

    Oh, and something horrid is behind the whole thing...
