Here you will learn in brief about the history of my family.
The history of my family, the Gangrene family, starts when the first Gangrene,
Gregorius Krateras left from Greece in 1453. Greece was the great Byzantine
Empire back then and 1453 was the age of its fall, after being conquered by the
Turks. The tragic event forced Gregorius to leave his country and head for
Gregorius was a great, honest, noble, wise, scholastic and religious person.
He was an orthodox christian deeply in his heart and always cared about people
who needed help. But Gregorius had a secret and dark side too. He was an
alchemist, an occultist and an arcanist. He discovered the Reverse Science and
researched ways of communicating with the Outer Worlds.
In Romania, Gregorius didn't stop his researches and a couple of months after
his arrival, a terrible accident happened. A failure of his experiments
and infected him with diseases that could not be cured. It was then when he
the nickname Gangrene. But the accident did something good for him too, it made
him conceive one of the greatest arcane objects ever constructed, the
Gregorius got married and had a son. He discovered that his illness is
inherited to his descendants too. That's why all of the male members of the
Gangrene family have ugly and disfigured appearance. All of us look
weird and have a major illness. Gregorius died from gangrene. Theophilus
had severe problems with his heart. Tromos was insane. Athanatos had cancer.
My grandfather Maximus is asthmatic. And I have epilepsy.
There are 12 male descendants of the Gangrene family, including the first
of the Gangrene, Gregorius. I am the last one so far.
All of the Gangrene members are wise people, scientists, doctors or professors
and all of them are practising the Reverse Science. The Reverse Science is
taught from father to son. They also have discovered and invented many
things that defy the natural laws of physics and give a more practical meaning
Now you will learn some of the most important Gangrene members and their
achievements. Gregorius was the first of the Gangrene. Theophilus was the
Gregorius and managed to construct the Triangle. The Triangle is a
geometrical tool that has some very strange mystical powers, if used properly.
after its construction, many years would pass until only a few of its powers
would be discovered. Even now, the Triangle is still a mystery. It is made of
adamantine and it has equal sides around 50 centimetres each.
Tromos was a very wise and talented man too. He liked sick jokes very much and
wrote some really sick and disturbing poems. He was the one to conceive the
invention of the Dark Quantity, the second great discovery of the Gangrene
family. However, it
was very difficult for him to compose it. It required materials and knowledge
not of his era. He was very depressed of his failure, even if it wasn't
really his fault. Finally he got mad and commited suicide.
Athanatos was the first to discover and realise a major threat for the Gangrene
family and the entire world too. He researched a lot about the Outer
Worlds and discovered the Terror Lands, the hostile locations of the Outer
Worlds that the Outer Terrors inhabit. The Outer Terrors are horrible
creatures with supernatural fighting skills that get perverted pleasure of
causing destruction everywhere. Athanatos also discovered the thin separation
between our world and the Outer Worlds. He named it the Surface.
Now you will learn about the most important member of the Gangrene family, and
the most beloved to me too!
He is my grandfather named Maximus.
Maximus belongs to the 11th generation of the Gangrene family. He was born in
Romania in 1899. He decided to move in Greece, his home country, in 1966. He
had problems while living in Romania and since Greece was liberated in 1821, he
thought it would be a good idea to be the first Gangrene to return in Greece.
He moved there with his daughter.
Yes, it is strange that after many generations of sons, Maximus was the first
to have a female child. And since his wife had died, he didn't have any
Maximus invented the Dark Quantity. An unstable, pitch black substance that
reflects no light. Using information given from Tromos' manuscripts and with
some help of modern science he finally succeeded in composing this powerful
substance. The properties of the Dark Quantity are many and mysterious, but its
most important feature is its ability to combine itself with the Triangle, so
it can break the Surface and open a link to the Outer Worlds. My grandfather
discovered this power of the Dark Quantity only after 1999. Since then he can
use the Dark Quantity to summon the
beings from the other side of the Triangle.
Now I will tell you a little about the last member of the Gangrene family, who
else but me,
My mother was a very liberated person and hated my grandfather, so she ran away
from Maximus' home and got married. She wouldn't imagine she would give birth
like me, so my father and she didn't treat me very well. So, when I was 15 I
moved to my grandfather's house. My grandfather loves me very much and does
anything for me. But unlike the rest of the Gangrene family, I am not wise or
anything great. I don't like studying and I've always been getting bad marks.
I have no
interest in the heritage of my family and I don't care at all about the
Reverse Science stuff. I can say I am a true failure regarding the Gangrene
standards. I do nothing to honor my family. I am a very lazy person and I do
not work or study. I just stay home, my grandfather feels so sad about this and
he is very sorry for me, that's why he feeds me, lets me stay home and
doesn't kick me out. I also like... Uh... You can read more about me in the
