The Digital World had been relatively at peace after the dethronement of the self-proclaimed Digimon Emperor. All traces of that dark era were gradually erased until it remained but a mere memory in the minds of those who had witnessed it firsthand. Malomyotismon never came into existence; in fact, Yukio Oikawa was never involved with the affairs of Ken Ichijouji or the Digital World.
The majority of the real-world denizens still know nothing of the Digital World; and just as the original battle between Greymon and Parrotmon at Highton View Terrace was explained away as terrorism, so have been other real-world discrepancies.
A small branch of the Japanese military, which soon came to be known as the Delitto Special Operations, became extremely interested in these “acts of terrorism” and the apparent amount of power behind them. When no groups were found to support the seemingly random attacks, the Delitto Special Ops (DSO) began their own research and eventually stumbled across conspiracy theories involving the Digidestined and the Digital World. Through largely hysterical re-tellings of Digimon sightings, the rumors were enough to lead the DSO to the Digidestined and much more dangerous information. The DSO was obsessed with the promise of power offered by the Digimon they researched, and planned on using them as weapons for their own agenda.
When the DSO failed to open a working portal into the Digital World, a tense struggle between them and the known Digidestined ensued. When the latter refused to allow careless entry into the Digital World, the DSO attempted to create their own portals. They were poorly made, and blinked out of existence shortly after they were born. The one Digimon they were able to pull out into the real world was so weak from the transition through the “glitchy” portal that it was destroyed as soon as they began running tests on it.
The Digidestined, meanwhile, busied themselves with sealing off the Digital World. They remained silent and kept their heads down – after several fruitless years, the DSO was shut down and regarded in much the same manner as Area 51. Afraid of similar abuse, the remaining Digidestined made a pact to never return to the Digital World. After several decades, Digimon and the events involving them came to be seen as a hoax; an old wives’ tale not to be given credit.
It has been over a century since anyone has even seen, much less set foot the Digital World. The tentative calm that had settled in the absence of human interference is beginning to warp – Digimon are once more reaching out to the real world in search of human tamers, desperately in need of help. People all over the world have started receiving mysterious emails, each one containing but a single link that once clicked, self-deletes the email after it pulls the reader into the Digital World through a dilapidated portal.
So why has chaos seized the reigns of the Digital World once again? Darkness has returned in the form of a virus that is spreading through the Digital World. It warps both the Digimon and their world into dark, twisted imitations of their true selves, bringing out and manifesting the worst of who they are. The origins of the disease are shrouded in mystery, and stemming the spread of the virus seems an impossible task. A dark beast, Gevaudamon by name, is said to spread the illness as he travels through the digital landscape -- is he the cause of this pandemic, and if so... Will you be able to stop him?JOIN US TODAY
