Start of the Hate and MadnessEdit
Polus was one of many Fades who tried to appeal to the Angelics for help in finding a way to end their tormented existence in limbo. However, the Angelics decided it wasn't their place to interfere, and the Fades would just have to endure. When the Fades responded angrily to this, the Angelics forged weapons against them and, according to Polus, "...became our wardens and persecutors".
Around this time, Polus was also watching his widow silently suffer in an abusive relationship with a husband who beat her, and children who did not love her. Unable to bear any more, she eventually committed suicide; an act which is implied to have pushed Polus further over the edge, since he was present, but unable to do anything to stop her. Not able to be without her, he lay next to her body for several days, enduring the pain of her blood dripping on him. When her blood ws completely drained, he discovered something amazing. The skin that had been exposed to the blood had become corporeal. Though still invisible, he found the exposed skin was able to feel and touch the world of the living.
