Abominor slayer machines led a horrid onslaught against the humans, the Human empress Jessicarayed to Elmo, the Beckerist god of the underworld, he released his power upon the Abominor monstrosities,but he was double-crossed and abandoned by Jessica, and in his rage he devastated the planet, sending the ruins of great ancient Beckerist civilization into a state they would remain undiscovered for millenia, along with the human survivors into forced primitivism.
