History[edit | edit source]
According to legend, Kyuss lived 3,000 years ago as a human wizard whose soul merged with the Overlord Katashka the Gatekeeper, who had temporarily escaped his binding by the Silver Flame, and the combined entity briefly became something like a demigod.
The combined entity was called Kyuss-Katashka. Before it could come into its full power, the new entity was imprisoned once more. Legends say, that if he is released again, he will bring forth the final age of the world, known as the Age of Worms.
