Kullervo, knight of great renown and paragon of virtue, lost his soul in the heat of battle. Tricked by sorcery, he slew an innocent child and damned his soul forever. Seeking redemption, he delved deep into the Tomb of A’Etenkah where he encountered a beautiful woman who promised him the redemption he sought was just beyond a door, deeper in the tomb. He followed her down, but when he reached the door, he found that he could not open it. In frustration and rage, he hacked the stone door with his enchanted sword, until he broke through at last.

A hundred thousand demons from a hundred thousand hells rushed through the opening into the mortal world, and Kullervo, knowing that there could be no forgiveness for this sin, turned to join them.
