Even before our universe was created, there were those who existed as embodiments of the eternal flow of time. Astrius was one of those entities, known as the Epoch Guardian. Billions of years after the origin event, Astrius grew bored of the repetitive consistency of time. He wandered through dimensions seeking the Forbidden Star. Without knowing what would happen, he travelled inside the Star where it began to feed on his temporal energies. Eons later, Astrius found himself walking on land among other mortals. Although still maintaining his abilities to manipulate time, he finds himself severely limited compared to his ancient powers. He is however completely content, because the excitement of life and death has injected new meaning into his eternal existence.
