Synopsis for "Heart of Darkness"
Long ago, in another universe, a trinity of beings called the Divine attempted to eradicate the concept of evil through an item known as the Heart of Darkness. When the Divine return to a world they believed liberated, they find it in utter chaos along with the being they believe to be responsible, only because he appears not to be one of the planets inhabitants. As they had done billions of times before, they sentence him and his two guards to the Heart of Darkness, that would feed on their evils. However, they were horrified when the stranger not only resisted, but consumed the Heart of Darkness, along with the evils of a billion worlds, which heralded the true birth of Trigon. Now driven by insatiable hunger for evil, Trigon now moves slowly from universe to universe, spreading his devastating brand of evil in order to sate a hunger that knows no end.
Much later, Trigon encounters a woman wearing a suit of armor specifically crafted to counter his immense powers. Though neither is able to slay the other, Trigon is forced to retreat, swearing that a members of his blood would return in their thousands to destroy the wearer of the Silent Armor. Trigon has since set his plans into action, only to run into the problem of most of the mothers of his children being unable to endure it, leaving Trigon with only three sons, all of whom he considers failures. Then, one day, he is brought a human from Earth known as Arella, who gives him his first daughter; Raven, the most powerful of Trigons children, and the reason why Trigon now targets Earth for conquest.
