History[edit | edit source]

The Pride[edit | edit source]

When a group of interdimensional entities called the Gibborim conspired to destroy humanity, they recruited six criminal couples to help them. The criminal couples, each with differing backgrounds and skills, where promised incredible power and influence, as well as survival for six people, in exchange for their assistance in destroying mankind.  The villains agreed, believing they could not stop the Gibborim regardless and would relish the power they promised.

Over time, they enjoyed their newfound power but something changed the day that one of the couples discovered that they were going to have a child.  Discussing the point of bringing a child into the world that will end, each Pride couple decided to have children, hoping that the Gibborim would allow six of their children to continue on past the end of the world.
