The Eight truthkeepershad been studying the dark side for years now and knew that it was the time to strike the pitiful light siders, in a small area of Space known only as the republic, but knew they couldn't do that without and empire of their own. There was one problem though, throughout there tenure as the first dark siders, they had grown powerful, so powerful in fact that they were preparing to merge with the Everpresent Omnupotence, one last time they prayed to Spode, and celebrated a great party for weeks celebrating Spode, his time of spode would forever be known as the first Goolchabecke. Spode wa spleased with this display so he told the 8 keepers that he would create three people that would embody them, the whole entire Beckerism religion would receive a prophecy that offered the words plague, vengance, devastation, jealousy, passion, strength power, and victory; They were destined to be spodes chosen, but only one would triumph in the end.
