[Author's note: updated to improve readability and improve story flow.]Prologue
In the multiverse, there are infinite worlds with infinite possibilities. On one – just one of all the multiverses - Earth, Multiverse 37686 – there was a ripple in the fabric of the multiverses. In a town named Sunnydale, California, Ethan Rayne succeeded in awakening Janus, the ancient God of Chaos. Although the ancients understood the dangers of such a foolhardy act, Ethan Rayne callously ignored the fact that awakening Janus could have consequences that would transcend time and space.
In truth, Ethan Rayne didn’t care. All he wanted was to lash out at the cosmos – LOOK AT WHAT YOU DID TO ME! – and create as much Chaos as possible. He briefly woke Janus to curse Sunnydale, and it was done. But as Janus returned to sleep, ripples spread out from the Hellhole like a small stone dropped in a pond. The multiverse trembled slightly, and everything changed.
