As a child, Aero was born into an elite clan of elementalists which fought in the name of the their god, the light diety Milena. Aero showed a superior affinity to the natural elements as a child, which was taken to mean his connection to Milena was stronger than most. This came as both a blessing as well as a curse and each in their own time as time grew on, battles were fought and men were lost. The clan was at a point of desperation, coming to a joint belief that if they were to simply sacrifice the most holy of their people. By this point Aero was a young child, only 8 years old but already much further along with his teachings than the rest of the clans younger members. The clan elders snuck into his house one dark night, binding him up before taking him away into forest and its darkness, in search of what would remain of an old church that had once housed praisers of the dark lord Razza
Inside of this church they unearthed what remainied of a secret tunnel beneath the preachers podium and dragged the boy along with them. At the end of this tunnel they found a sacrificial chamber, which held a stone podium at its center. There they layed the boy upon the stone slab and fastened his hands and feet to its surface, trapping the boy in place. One by one they began to chant and pray as their leader produced a knife from his robe, a thin dagger with a black diamond pressed into the center of the hilt. Aero cried out constantly in protest, tears staining his cheeks as the men simply continued with their ritual, bring the knife to his right wrist. A sharp cry rang through the air as the edge of the knife tore through Aeros wrist and artery, before the same was done to his left. The blood which poured from his body was captured within two which had been carved into the stone, the official spot for the blood offering. The fight was drained from Aero as fast as the blood from his body and soon he lost consciousness before the life faded from his body.
As the boy died on the slab, Razza grabbed ahold of the offered soul with little to no delay, basking in the sheer power the soul possessed and its connection with Milena. Rather than devour the soul he nurtured it, holding its connection with Aeros body to keep it alive for the moment. Razza.forced his chaotic energy upon Aeros soul to remove whatever would remain of the boys former self. The thoughts and feelings he would have would no longer be his own and his powers would resemble his as well, though they would grow on their own. Following this Razza returned the boys soul to his body and the power it now held caused the elders to halt their leave and turn back to look at the boys body.
They watched in joint silence as the boys body twitched and jerked lightly on the stone slab and upon closer inspection they found the bowls of blood had begun to boil and slowly crawl back to the open wounds on his body. As the last droplet of blood found its way home Aeros eyes suddenly reopened, no trace of any color but black as a single pulsation sounded from his body and seemed to shake the earth. The elders felt the negative.presence within the boy and prepared to fight him, though as the boy showed while tearing free of his restraints, the men were doomed. The boy still seemed well aware of the training.he had previously had, as his control over the elements was shown. What made it different however was the energy that seemed to lace every attack, a dark energy that seemed to permiate the Mena bodys. The man that died last had the will sapped from his body, and as the boy towered over his cowering form he only shut his eyes before crushing the man's skull beneath his foot, and.passing out on the floor.
the boy woke to find himself on the floor and surrounded by a puddle of blood with no memory, he fled into the darkness of he night; he was alone but unafraid. There were always voices.in the back of his mind, telling him to do bad things and other times good things, a.mixture of the light and dark presences in his body.
As the years passed word finally began to spread around about what had happened and while the details were skewed the results were abundant none the less. He was labeled as a demon and a bounty was placed upon his head at age 14, though he looked to be 10 now, and his days soon became dedicated to traversing the shadows.
At age 16 Aeros health began to take a drastic turn for the worst, feeling on a daily basis as though his body was simply devouring itself. The Chaos.energy within his body had begun to grow in power over the years and had evolved slightly. Aero found that it had a knack of overpowering and/or overwhelming other energy he faced with the bounty hunters after him. Because of this it was attempting to overtake Aero completely, attempting to.replace all his blood cells with pieces of itself, which sped up the comparable decay Aero was faced with. After some nosing around Aero.caught word an old wizard who could help his situation, Mitsurashi was his name and he was said to be knowledged enough to help Aero and.so he sought.him out.
The wizard Mitsurashi told Aero the procedure to save his body was not guaranteed to work and would kill if it did not succeed, something inside him told him he would be fine. The procedue began with Aero lying on a large crystal slab for energy magnification and the wizard produced an empty crystal ball the size of a coconut. He explained that the orb would absorb every bit of energy within Xaviers body within the orb and free him of its ill effects, but the old man did not fully understand the situation in which he had.gotten himself. The orb was.placed upon Aeros bare chest after the wizard had put him to sleep and he began to channel his own powers between the orb and Aero to help their connection. At the very moment he did this he was.overwhelmed by a feeling of sadness and despair before he could feel the energy being sucked from his body.
The wizard had attempted to grasp and pull Aeros.energy into the orb and had unknowingly opened a 2 way door, through which the chaotic energy reached out and grasped hold of the wizards power to draw it out. Slowly both their energies slipped into the orb before the energy began to heat the orb enough to melt into Aeros chest, repairing the damage once it positioned itself behind hism. Ovr a period of 3 days Aeros body grew and changed around this new life source, connecting nerve endings and veins to provide the new power to the body. It caused a much faster decay process to oveake Aerobody as his organs slowly dwindled away to nothing.
Aero awoke a week later, 3 days after the process had finished and noted how warm it felt comared to the day before as well as the fact that heseemed unplagued by the need to breathe. This.brought about a smile and he decides take in a breath anyway, which caused him to curl over in pain before reeling back at the sight of the dead wizard. His body was shriveled and sunken in as though he has been dead for months, the sight churned his stomach and reminded him of the first day he can remember and it brought a shiver down his spine. The pain brought him to look towards a chest in the wizards home, one he had told him stored the pieces his body would now require.
Reaching into the box Aero first took out what appeared to be a black facial mask made of a single sheet steel, the back of the mask was solid and formed to cover his nose; designed to restrict air flow to the body. Using a leather strap and metal clasp Aero fastened this piece of equipment to his face, it restricted his jaw to a certain point but still allowed him to speak. The next piece he removed was a plate of black steel armor which was lines on the bottom with several thin needles designed to feed off the energy in his body. Upon placing it on he grimaced slightly but the pain left quickly as his body adhered to the new piece of equipment. The last object within the trunk was an icicle shaped crystal which resembled the material the orb within his chest was made of. Doing a bit of research in the wizards home revealed it to be a type of energy focusing crystal, to be used to introduce new energy into the orb or focus what's already there. He took these items and disappeared into the night after setting the house ablaze.
15 years later down the road, Aero age 31 and constantly training himself, the two conflicting factions had continued to assault one another and grow as more and more were recruited to each side. War was now at hand, and Razza had the advantage of having Aero on his side of the battle. With the aid of a large army at his side Aero struck down the opposing forces in mere hours, laying waste to their kingdom and homes before returning home.
It was the beginning of a new life, one in which he would come to rule over the world and all inhabitants of it, before eventually reaching a point that he was at the peek of his power. One day, 45 years after his conquest Aero began to feast off the energy which practically oozed from the core of his world, extracting all the natural energy deposits within the core, bringing the planet's.rotation to a slow stop. The energy he had devoured seemed to grant Aero with some higher sense, for as his planet began to implode upon itself he simply looked to the sky, feeling strong energy waves pulsating from all corners of space. There was more for him to feast upon now.
