Written By
David Henry Neilsen

In a time forlorn to religion or its written text, there lived a young man known as Zerok. He miraculously survives the global flood of 2348 B.C.E. as foretold by the biblical legend known as Noah. He survives the flood only to be captured and murdered by a group of renegade Angels known as the Nephilim. The Nephilim mentioned as the sons of God in the book of Genesis; were also known as the followers of Zaitarr.

Driven by reasons known only to the Nephilim, they turned their backs on God and decided to claim earth as their home, living and breeding amongst the humans. The follower’s hatred toward humankind distended their evil infatuations of one day reclaiming the earth and all of its inhabitants for their own pathetic and selfish needs. Gods love had no longer mattered to the followers; his respect eluded their desires, creating a propositioning conquest of one day possessing his secretive and almighty power. Semjâzâ, the leader of the followers murdered Zerok, sentencing his soul to a horrific trial of tribulations down in the hall of chambers, located within the deepest bowels of hell. Satan’s most revered and trusted demon called Zaitarr planned an ingenuous conspiracy, a phenomenal rouse to replace the eternal throne of Lucifer. Zeroks insufferable hatred for these immortal combatants grew into a psychotic synthesis of violence; a hatred shadowing even stronger than the purest form of untainted hatred Satan harnesses toward his creator. It is not that Zerok submissively walked away from his humanity; he accidentally stumbled into a deviant plan to use him as a superior pawn.

Soon after Zeroks arrival to the hall of chambers, Satan has him trained to become his highest-ranking commander over his legions of demon warriors. Soon after, he befriends a group of teenagers trespassing on his training grounds. Together, Zerok and the group battle countless demons known as The Protectors.

Ensuring their long awaited freedom, Zerok and the group finally locate an elusive door to a chamber known only to one as the exit chamber. From within their darkened souls, the group swallowed their hatred, and allowed their evil to reign. Since the creation of the Heavens and the Earth, humankind has continually embarked on an invective sequence of mortal sins. They continually crossed over this threshold of intolerable sins in epical proportions. Each and every one of us, including those who have ever lived has received a predetermined judgment, inviting each of us to participate in an inescapable overture to the ultimate annihilation. Humankind’s mortal and spiritual destiny is to witness this global extermination. An irreversible extinction to what the Authors of the Holy Bible refer to as…Armageddon. Zerok and the group of teens will prove that their hypothesis was irrefutably wrong.

Artist's Description

Imagine we’re among a handful of survivors, during the infamous Noah’s flood of 2348BCE? Surviving only to be captured and murdered; having our souls cursed to spend an eternity in the cavernous, chamber filled bowels of hell; murdered by a group of renegade Angels known as the Nephilim. Maybe we’re rebel insurgents serving in the ranks of the Wayward Sons, who opposes Joshua Weber’s New World Order?
Should we allow our hatred to strengthen our desires of evading enslavement as a one of Weber’s planetary volunteers; and quite possibly saving ourselves from being killed by Weber’s highly trained executioners?
What if we had no choice, but to accept our fate and live out our curse, eventually being promoted, becoming Satan’s highest ranking commander over his Warrior Demons; maybe we should take the advice from a jealous demon, whom we replaced; and hope we’re not being set up; or do we come up with a plan to reverse our gruesomely evil incarceration in hell, and seek out those responsible for our demise? When you’re down to nothing, God is up to something; worry looks around, sorry looks back, yet the faithful always looks up. Questions like these and many more; Zerok and a group of teens must resolve in the first saga of my trilogy called “The Followers”
