By chance, the paths of a renowned hero and an infamous bogeyman intersect. Locked in a wordless battle, the two beat each other bloody before the monster calls for a break, finally asking his opponent what has brought him to his abode. When the hero realizes that the bogeyman doesn't have what he seeks, he quickly creates a distraction and flees, having lost too much blood to continue fighting. Before disappearing into the night, he promises to one day return and finish the fight as its victor. The bogeyman accepts this pledge, demanding that the hero remember his name: BEEADDLEDRUNG.
After waiting for what feels like an eternity, BEEADDLEDRUNG realizes that he doesn't just want to finish that battle; he wants to be killed, and the hero is the only person he's ever met with the potential to kill him. Enraged by the broken promise and tired of existing as a bogeyman, without hope of further evolution, the monster emerges from his lair in search of his fated executioner and finds a changed world.
