The twelfth Artifact of Legend unchained tells the story Maggots Devour the Corpse of Hope:
When Succorria arrived in the modern age, she made a horrible discovery: the future belonged to humans, not demons. They were the inheritors of the Titans' legacy and their civilized world drained her of her spirit, her bloodlust, and her will to live. She could not return a failure, so she released her slaves and retired in defeat to a hidden cave. The stowaway, Riggnarok, stayed with her to complete his mission, but he could not bring himself to kill the pitiful, once-great warrior. Instead, he took care of her, and they became companions. Far away from their old world and its ancient battles, prejudices, and taboos, an intimacy developed, and then a coupling, and then, miraculously, a child. Its birth left Succorria lifeless, and Riggnarok took the child out of the cave and raised him in the Age of Modern Man, never telling him of his forbidden ancestry.
