Vexana was born in the ancient city of Ur, as the youngest of 4 siblings. She was the only girl, as well as being much younger than her brothers. By the time she was a young girl, her brothers Ivar, Gilad, and Aram were respected warriors. Because she was younger, and a little harsh and cruel for a child her age, her brothers didn’t interact with her much. When the trio returned home from a quest to find a mysterious Boon as a duo instead of a trio, with Gilad on his deathbed, Vexana fled the city in tears. While fleeing, she discovered a place of power, the home of dark death cults dedicated to ending life. Being in such a place of power, and her heritage as an Anni-Padda, was all that saved her when the Boon was opened. A massive explosion occurred, a Great Cataclysm, that killed all life in Ur and the surrounding areas. Even Vexana died, but the dark spirits unleashed from the Boon sensed her heritage and woke her before she could pass on. This gave the young girl immortality, as well as the ability to control and manipulate emotions.

Vexana didn’t know the true reason behind her survival. When she returned home, she found everyone else dead, and being a child, began to blame herself. If she was the only one alive, could she have been the cause? So she fled Ur, walking the devastated land alone. Later, because of her guilt, she let herself forget Ur and her family, and convinced herself she was born around 1900 BCE, supposedly after a demon forced itself on her mother.

Calling herself the War-Monger, Vexana has claimed to have sparked almost every major world conflict in history, opposed only by different incarnations of Unity. Because she was seemingly unable to be killed, Unity would find ways to contain or isolate War-Monger, but she always returned. In the modern era, the current incarnation of Unity once again managed to stop her schemes. Because she feeds and feeds off of human conflict, the immovable psiot Anchor sacrificed himself to pin her at the bottom of the ocean, as far away from humanity as possible though she was later found and made her way back to the surface.
