GloomWeaver is an extra-dimensional demon worshiped by many Voodoo cults and primitive tribes. He feeds on the gloom and despair of mankind, awarding dark magic to those who worship him in return for their sacrifices, encouraging them to inflict suffering on the world around them to feed his powers. Although he often sends his thoughts and power into this world for brief periods of time, he has failed to permanently breach the veil that separates him from the feast of desperate souls that our world offers.

But that is about to change. Terrible battles between villains and heroes have grown more frequent over the past few decades - the gloom and despair their battles have wrought have increased his power. Cultists have begun collecting the terrible relics of GloomWeaver: the Pouch of Bones, the Drum of Despair, Grimoire of Curses. If all three are brought together and GloomWeaver is invoked, the seals will be broken! The world’s greatest heroes gather, intent on stopping the demon’s plot, but GloomWeaver is pleased - their strife and anguish will feed his power, and spur his cultists on to bring discord and despair into this world, permanently. And with the heroes defeated, GloomWeaver and his worshipers will be free to spread gloom, despair, and death across the multiverse indefinitely.

After being sealed back in the Realm of Discord by NightMist and her heroic allies, GloomWeaver could barely feel the emotional flow of the plane of mortals. However, even through the haze, he could feel an intense hatred drift through that world. GloomWeaver had never felt such hatred as that felt by Jack Donovan. So, when the villain known as Spite died, GloomWeaver offered him another chance to wreak havoc, but this time as the right hand of the demon god.

Through Spite, GloomWeaver works to enter this realm in a new way: this time through a vessel of flesh. If Spite succeeds, he will build for GloomWeaver a new body from the corpses of his victims. However, if Spite fails, the dread lord of despair will overtake the shell of Jack Donovan and enter the mortal plane through undead possession! Either way, GloomWeaver is on his way back, and he is more terrifying than ever before!
