Long ago, before there were humans, there was an octopus named Otto. Before there was anything, there was complete darkness created by octopus ink.
Otto believed he was the only living creature, but a more powerful species hid beneath the surface of the darkness, waiting to reveal itself.
One day, this powerful species came face to face with the octopus, and introduced himself as Larry the Lobster. Larry wanted to combine their powers together to create an even stronger being that would take over after Otto and Larry lost their abilities. He decided to introduce himself without getting too close because he did not want to startle Otto.
Hello, my name is Larry and I am the powerful Lobster of the nothingness. I want to unite forces to work together to create something even stronger than us. The darkness around us can be gone if we work together to diminish the darkness around us.
When Otto first heard the news he was confused. He had never had any interaction with anything, just himself.
Come closer to reveal yourself, I won’t trust you until I can see you!
Larry stepped out of the deep nothingness and into a region he liked better, a light nothingness. This was the first time that the two were face to face, so it was the first time either had been so close to someone other than themselves. Otto introduced himself.
I am Otto the octopus, the most powerful species that cannot be controlled by anyone.
After a few days of trying to strike up a friendship, Otto saw something he did not like in Larry and it did not look like it was going away, which made him skeptical. Larry talked about his goals for unity and togetherness, but he had a gleam in his eye that looked evil. Otto decided that he did not want to be friends with Larry and work together, so he kept his distance from the lobster.
