    depp 77 i will take a look at these timelines and try to interject where i can, off the bat from what i read, Bashor is on par with the rest of the god beasts, he should be included in the first line,

    and i feel like Maskra is on Par with Standor as well as an old god.

    Also it should be Noted that along with Serpos, Ka was imprisoned into snake mtn as well for controlling Sepros, hence his visage on the side of snake mtn.

    ... continuation of a post in the previous page (summarized timeline according to Classics canon)

    MOTU_timeline.jpg

    From the end of The Age of Sorrow to the start of contemporary history
    Another 3,000 years would pass from the point in time when the Age of Sorrow ended until the start of the so-called Vintage Era (the era of Adam as He-Man until the Second Ultimate Battleground, which I will present in the next section). Since this is not an unknown period of Eternian history, Iím sure there are documented facts belonging to the ancient times within this period but I will concentrate, instead, on the last century of this period, where we have notice of the last two He-Men before Adam.

    One hundred years before Adam, a warrior from the Subternian city of Tundaria was chosen by the Goddess to protect the Sword of He. The name of this warrior was Wundar, and was known as The Savage He-Man, because of his style of combat (so it must have been interesting to know what enemies suffered that savage style of battling, but I donít have that information). The only thing mentioned so far is that Wundar completed The Nine Tasks of the Snow Dwarves of Crystal Mountain, but it is not mentioned how that episode in the life of Wundar influenced the upcoming events in history. Wundar was chosen after saving the Goddess (in disguise). Another interesting fact about Wundar is that he was given the weapon and armor of a Cosmic Enforcer (or more likely a Mystic Warrior, anyways those are the same kind of weapons & armor used by Zodac, but in black color). Wundar was able to tap into unlimited fire power with such a weapon (savage! I imagine he was like the John Wick of his times!).

    After roughly 100 years, an unknown but extremely brave and heroic warrior named Oo-larr, from the Vine Jungle, would save the Goddess (seems like this was her preferred recruiting method to prove warriors worthy to be He-Men). This warrior, known as The Jungle He-Man, actually participated in events that would shape the future of Eternia.

    During this time, Eternia went through the Great Unrest: King Miro had disappeared. He had been actually banished to Despondos by Count Marzo. Marzo had started an uprising movement trying to depose King Miro to put a better ruler in the throne of Eternos that would see for the suffering of the dwellings of the Dark Hemisphere. Count Marzo, who was also a powerful wizard, thought he would be that better ruler. Marzo gathered many adepts who joined his forces, like the wizard Nepthu, and also created the Shadow Beasts. In these turbulent times, with no king and Marzo trying to impose himself as the ruler, the sons of Miro, princes Keldor and Randor, joined forces to defeat Count Marzo, and they were successful in doing that.

    Keldor was the firstborn of King Miro, but his mother was not the queen (Miroís wife), but a Gar lady (Saryn was her name) who had been the lover of Miro when he was a prince and shipwrecked on a distant island. Miro did not know of this son until the boy was sent to him by Saryn, who was magically bound to the island and could not leave it. Years later, when Queen Amelia (Mirosí wife) was mysteriously assassinated, Keldor was accused of killing her (later we would learn that this tragic event was influenced by Hordak from his prison in Despondos), and since Keldor was half Gar, the distrust of Eternians didnít help in his favor, so he was banished from the kingdom.

    Keldor became an outcast and found Hordakís temple, which had been built by the Horde during the truce of the Great Wars. He was able to contact this entity from Despondos and became his apprentice in dark magic. Keldor also gathered some allies, like Evil-Lyn, Beast Man, Kronis (who would become Trap Jaw after his fight for power with Skeletor) and Tri-Klops.

    Keldor and Evil-Lyn became lovers, and they fathered a son named Malkyn, who would be later known by the nickname Skeleteen. Keldor started uprising movements again to claim Eterniaís throne, and in an attempt where he faced his brother Randor, now king, he was mortally wounded. Evil-Lyn and the rest of the group took Keldor to Hordakís temple to try to save his life, and Hordak indeed saved his life, but at the price of being merged with a demon, Demo-Man. This drove Keldor insane for some time (he had a demon in his head!), but in the end, there was no more Keldor, only Skeletor. After Keldor was transformed into Skeletor, he lost any attachment to Evil-Lyn or his son, so Lyn sent his son to the future (pretty much as his father did during the Great Wars) to be raised by The Faceless One (this was Nikolas Powers after being punished by the Council of Elders for breaking the terms of the truce during the Great Wars) to protect him from Skeletor.

    Skeletor became the hand of Hordak in Eternia, a servant through whom Hordak could put plans in motion to try to seize the power that he knew was deep in Eternia, now probably the power that could set him free from Despondos.

    After the attack of Keldorís forces on Eternos, Prince Randor ordered the building of the Mystic Wall, so that the kingdom could be protected from further attacks. The Council of Elders, in the absence of King Miro and Queen Amelia, crowned Randor king. But peace would not return to Eternia yet, since the powerful warlord Gygor, who had killed Lord Cholo and claimed the throne of the Vine Jungle, had also gathered an army of beast men to take Castle Grayskull. Oo-larr, the jungle He-Man, and the Goddess fought him and finally defeated Gygor, putting him in a state of suspended animation.

    The next relevant task that Oo-larr did was to reunite the sword of power, as requested by Sorceress. So, Oo-larr had to search for the other half of the sword in the Dark Hemisphere. The reason for this was to have the whole sword to be able to magically clone it, so that the twins of destiny could both wield the Sword of He. The clon sword ended up being called the Sword of Protection, later enhanced with another gem, but equally capable to harmonize with the power of the Universe/Grayskull. The original sword was split again and one of the halves hidden by Oo-larr in the Dark Hemisphere. This was not ignored by Skeletor, as he tracked hints unintentionally left and was able to get that hidden half for some time.

    Skeletor built his enchanted Battle Armor that would allow him to cross the Mystic Wall. By this time, Marlena had already arrived in Eternia and was Randorís queen. They had two children, the twins Adora and Adam, destined to be the worthy heirs of the power of Grayskull, their ancestor. Knowing about this prophecy, Hordak had tasked Skeletor to kidnap the twins and send them to him. Thatís why a magic Battle Armor built by Skeletor was a key piece to execute this plan. This battle armor allowed Skeletor to walk safely through the Mystic Wall. Skeletor partially succeeded, since he kidnapped Adora and handed her over to Hordak, who would raise her as her daughter. Also, with the Battle Armor, Skeletor breached the Mystic Wall and kidnapped the Sorceress. In this case, the intent was to clone her to raise the cloned Sorceress as his bride. In this Classics canon, that magic clone would grow up as Teela. Man-at-Arms (Duncan) stopped Skeletor and this plan was aborted (the clone baby was adopted by Duncan, as it is well known). Oo-larr had a singular combat with Skeletor and destroyed his Battle Armor with his mighty axe, causing him to fold back to the Dark Hemisphere. However, years later, Skeletor was able to breach the wall and threaten the Light Hemisphere again.

    Nothing has been said, at least that I know in Classics, about the transition from Oo-larr to Adam. It would have made sense if Oo-larr himself had trained Adam in his early days as He-Man.

    Next post will address the "Vintage Era"...

    Vintage Era (part 1)

    This is an era that has been officially framed within 14-15 years. It would comprise the years of a young He-Man (Adam) until the Second Ultimate Battleground. It would cover more or less what we saw in the vintage MOTU era (running along the Filmation series) and some mini comics.

    Probably the first relevant mission for Adam was to reunite the two halves of the Sword of Power. This is because he was not meant to be only a protector of the sword, like previous He-men, but its actual wielder and heir to the power of Grayskull. The half that was hidden in the Dark Hemisphere was in possession of Skeletor, so Adam had to fight for it to be able to reunite the sword. While the sword was still split, Adam used an electronic version of the sword created by Man-at-Arms (Duncan) and enchanted by Sorceress to allow it to harmonize with the power residing within Castle Grayskull. This electronic sword was a formidable weapon, but didnít allow Adam to transform into He-Man. Once Adam reunited the two halves of the sword, he was able to tap into its power to invoke the power of Grayskull and become He-Man.

    Just to be on the same page, for this era we had these persons in the mentioned roles: Adam was He-Man, TeelaíNa was the Sorceress, Duncan was the Man-At-Arms, main inventor & chief engineer, General of the Eternian Guard, leader of the elite group of heroic warriors of Eternia called the Masters, and adoptive father of Teela (the cloned ďdaughterĒ of Sorceress), who happened to be the Captain of the Eternian Guard. Randor and Marlena were the rulers of Eternia and Hordak was ruling Etheria as an extension of the Horde Empire in the dimension of Despondos.

    There was a Trollan wizard in the court of King Randor. Orko. He appeared to be the clumsy magician we know, basically an entertainer for the court, but he was close to the royal family, Man-at-Arms and Sorceress. In Classics cannon, he was actually a member of the wizards elite from Trolla and was sent to serve as a guide for the latest wielder of the Sword of He, which was a weapon of Trollan origin in the first place. If we think about it, framing our analysis in such a context, Orko was actually one of the most clever, skillful and devoted characters: he was able to pretend he arrived to Eternia in an almost accidental way, and then he inserted himself in the court and the royal family to be able to watch over Adam. Also, to my knowledge, Orko was never perceived as a wise counselor, so I have to believe his guidance had to happen through pretended intentional ďaccidentsĒ, causing events and influencing people in a very subtle way.

    Adam kept his ability to tap into the power of Grayskull as a secret, so during most of the Vintage Era he tried to hide this, a secret identity, because it was supposed Adam and He-Man were physically different. When Adam aged, he started to look very similar to He-Man, but then Sorceress casted a spell to create an illusion to everyone else that He-Manís look was more rugged. Only a few people knew about the secret: Sorceress, of course, Man-at-Arms (since he was ally, friend and protector of Sorceress/Grayskull), Orko and Cringer (Adamís best friend, a sentient tiger of the Green Tiger Tribe with the ability to speak) who would also be a recipient for the power of Grayskull, since Adam would channel that power through his sword to transform Cringer into Battle Cat (also kept as a secret identity, pretty much as Adam transformed into He-Man) when needed.

    Around this time, the Horde was already established in Etheria, in the Dimension of Despondos, ruling a big part of the planet. Hordeís scouts had discovered Etheria and Hordak led his army to conquer it. However, they were still imprisoned in this dimension. There was a rebellion against this regime, but it was not enough to depose the despot. Adora, the kidnapped twin sister of Adam, was a captain for the Horde, raised as Hordakís daughter. Itís worth mentioning that the Horde generals and commanders that were banished to Despondos together with Hordak had around 5,000 years there. Not much has been said about how they didnít seem to age, except that Hordakís family had made their closest loyal ranks nearly immortal through a mix of science and magic.

    Sorceress must be one of the most powerful wizards in the MOTU universe. Not in the sense of being a powerful combat mage, but in the complexity and depth of knowledge of magic and spells that no other wizard would be able to cast. In that context, while Hordak desperately wanted to return from Despondos to Eternia, the Sorceress was able to send He-Man through a dimensional portal to Etheria to find her sister and give her the Sword of Protection. Through the history of Eternia we would see the Sorceress opening portals through time, space and dimensions.

    He-Man found his sister, Adora, and eventually gave her the Sword of Protection. Through the contact with the sword she was able to know the truth of his heritage and became She-Ra when she invoked the power of Grayskull by raising the Sword of Protection. Adora abandoned the Horde, visited her real parents in Eternia and returned to Etheria to join the Great Rebellion against Hordak.

    (To be continued)

    Vintage Era (part 2)

    Faker was a robot originally built by Duncan to help Adam keep secret his identity as He-Man. The robot had been abandoned after being damaged in a battle. Tri-Klops was able to salvage and steal this robot from the royal junkyard, repaired it and reprogrammed it as the evil warrior Faker. This new evil warrior would be one of the key pieces for one of Skeletorís most effective plots against Eternia.

    Skeletor needed two more pieces to execute his plot to take over Eternia: he needed to get rid of Randor and he needed to breach Eternosí palace security. The Evil Warriors at the command of Skeletor tracked the inventor Gwildor, who had developed a powerful artifact that enabled time and space travel: The Cosmic Key. Skeletor got one of the prototypes of the Cosmic Key, which would be used to transport himself and his army into the Eternos Palace. Then Skeletor banished King Randor to Despondos. As far as we know, Skeletor didnít have the magic to banish someone to Despondos, so he probably made use of yet another artifact: the ancient Diamond Ray of Disappearance.

    At this point, Skeletor blamed He-Man for the supposed death of King Randor. Skeletor made use of Faker's resemblance to He-Man to frame a convincing lie around his accusations of He-Man being the murder. This caused Eterniansí distrust and rejection of He-Man, and such a climate of distrust created the conditions for Skeletor to easily take the throne of Eternos (and he must have genuinely thought he was the rightful heir to that throne, since he was King Miroís first born). As a consequence, He-Man became a fugitive and had to reveal his secret identity to friends and allies, so He-Man and the Masters became rebels against the reign of King Skeletor.

    Evil-Lyn, who was always plotting against Skeletor since he lost any emotional attachment to her, helped Kobra Khan to bring the Snake Men from the void, in the hopes of undermining Skeletorís power, but King Hssss would have his own agenda, and would not make any concessions unless it was something within the big schemes of his master, The Unnamed One.

    Meanwhile, in Etheria, Shadow Weaver had corrupted a fragment of the Crystal Castle and made the Crimson Crystal artifact. With such an artifact she established communication with the treacherous Evil-Lyn.The two witches found the portals of the Laser Gate (which had been lost until now) that connected dimensions, so they finally were able to open a stable bridge between Eternia and Despondos.

    A remarkable event derived from the return of King Hssss is that he turned Duncan, the Man-At-Arms, into a Snake Men, so this brave and key leader was lost by the Masters, and the Sorceress would be mortally poisoned by Hssss, so she resisted until revealing herself as Teelaís mother and training her daughter as the new Sorceress.

    She-Ra and the Great Rebellion defeated the Horde in Etheria, and Hordak led his army back to Eternia, as he always wanted, to conquer this world. She-Ra and some of the rebels of Etheria followed Hordak into Eternia.

    The Unnamed One commanded King Hssss to make an alliance with Hordak, and this was not an isolated event, since he commanded another of his generals, Lord GíRasp, to ally with the Horde in other territories of the Empire, so this must have been one of the strategies of the Unnamed One at big scale. Skeletor found himself in a very difficult position to hold the reign of Eternia, facing the alliance of the Horde and the Snake Men, as well as the rebel Masters led by He-Man and She-Ra. With such a tension between four different factions, Hordak and the Snake Men conquered Eternia, Skeletor was deposed, so that was the end of the brief reign of King Skeletor.

    Teela, as the new Sorceress, was able to send He-Man to Eterniaís distant past, using the combined power of the Cosmic Key and the Central Tower (since the ancient towers had arisen from the depths of Eternia, like announcing the big events to come) to search for the key knowledge to defeat the Snake Men. That knowledge happened to be the Spell of Separation, which had been used by Hordak during the Great Wars. Skeletor had secretly followed He-Man to the past, but they eventually had an encounter and He-Man captured Skeletor, taking him back to the present day as a prisoner. In exchange for his freedom, Skeletor offered to fight by the side of the Masters against the Snake Men and the Horde.

    All of these events would lead to The Second Ultimate Battleground, which would be the final battle of these times in the Eternian timeline. On one side there was the Horde, led by Hordak himself, allied with the Snake Men, led by King Hssss. Also Evil-Lyn, as the orchestrator of the plots that enabled both evil factions to come back from banishment, was on that side, together with Evil Seed and some warlords that participated in the conflicts during the Great Unrest, like Count Marzo, Gygor and Phravus. On the other side we had initially all of the renegade Masters led by He-Man, the Great Rebellion following She-Ra, Zodac and Skeletor with all of his Evil Warriors.

    During the 2nd Ultimate Battleground, as prophesized by the reappearance of the ancient towers of Eternia, the true kings returned: King Miro and King Randor returned from Despondos. It has not been confirmed, but it is thought they also found the Laser Gate passage back to Eternia. The kings led additional armies commanded by the races represented in the Council of Eternia: Chief Carnivus fought followed by the Qadians, Ceratus brought the Calligars, the Kulataks were following King Chooblah and the skies saw the armies of Avionians, Andreenid people and Speleans led by Stratos, Buzz-Off and Lord Dactus, respectively. Even the Beast Men joined these allies under the leadership of their massive grizzly-like chief, Red Beast.

    Duncan, still transformed into a Snake Men, led an attack that Clamp Champ tried to push back, resulting in the death of Duncan. Stratos also died during the 2nd Ultimate Battleground. Teela confronted and defeated Evil-Lyn, who lost her powers and escaped to the future with his son, Malkyn (also known as Skeleteen).

    With the knowledge brought by He-Man from Eterniaís past about the Spell of Separation, Orko was the one who casted it to defeat the Sneak Men. The way it would act on them was to separate their DNA, that had been spliced by the Unnamed One millenia ago from three different reptilian species.

    The final confrontation was meant to be He-Man, She-Ra and Skeletor against Hordak, to defeat him once and for all. However, Skeletor took a step forward and faced Hordak alone. He was indeed able to kill his old master, but was mortally wounded in turn. He saved himself by magically absorbing the techno-organic virus (from the Bionatops, which had been brought from Eterniaís past by He-Man) to heal his body, which grew cyborg parts but kept him alive and made him stronger. Skeletor felt himself supremely powerful, lost interest in Eternia, and feeling he should dominate the whole Horde Empire left Eternia to conquer other planets. That was the end of the Vintage Era.

    New Adventures Era
    The New Adventures era is framed within the next 5-6 years after the Second Ultimate Battleground. Skeletor had left Eternia after killing Hordak in battle; Evil-Lyn, after being stripped of her powers by the Sorceress (Teela), had escaped to the future to join her son; the Snake Men were destroyed by the Spell of Separation (or thatís what was thought before Orko discovered that the good snake goddess spirited them away to another dimension, where they were ďpurifiedĒ and turned into a force of good). Of course there were remnants of the Evil Warriors, but the major threats had been managed.

    There were a few months of peace, and in this context a starship from Primus arrived to Eternia with two emissaries, Hydron and Icarius, who came to this planet to ask for the help of He-Man and She-Ra to fight the Horde Empire that had Primus under siege. The Horde Empire operated this sector through their faction of Space Mutants, led by Flogg. When Skeletor left Eternia, he arrived at this system (the Tri-Solar System where planet Primus belonged to), joined this faction and convinced them to follow him to take over the Horde Empire. In any case, the Space Mutants were a serious threat to Primus, regardless of them being led by Skeletor or being part of the Horde Empire. He-Man and She-Ra bolstered the ranks of the Galactic Protectors to fight that threat.

    It was a three-factions conflict spanning several years, and the battle at Fetra IV marked a turning point in events: there were massive losses on both sides, Space Mutants and Galactic Protectors, so again there was an alliance between Skeletor and the twins to join forces against the Horde Empire ruled by Horde Prime. This alliance aimed to plan a final attack on Horde World, the main planet of the empire where the government was established, to end the empire once and for all.

    The mission led by He-Man, She-Ra and Skeletor arrived at Horde World, and they found Horde Prime, who was preparing his Vortex Beam to escape. During the encounter, the key controller fell from Primeís hand, Skeletor and He-man jumped to reach out to it but they were accidentally teletransported to Trolla. She-Ra was left alone to fight Horde Prime, and she defeated him, ending the Horde Empire as it was known until then. However the demonic spirit of Horde Prime possessed her, so she lost her self-awareness of her identity as Adora/She-Ra.

    Meanwhile, He-Man and Skeletor arrived at Trolla and found a different conflict there, though it was still a battle for the power of the universe. They found two opposed factions fighting for the Trollan Temple of Power: the Defenders of Trolla, on the side of good, and the Revenge Squad, led by one of the Unnamed Oneís Snake Men commanders, Lady Slyther. The reason behind the forces of the Unnamed One being in Trolla destroying the planet and decimating the Defenders was that Horde Prime, in an attempt to get the power of dangerous creatures and entities trapped in the Nameless Dimension, had broken the Kydex Crystal, an artifact that kept the barriers between dimensions. When that happened, the Unnamed One gained access to send and command his forces to Trolla, though it didnít free him from his dimensional prison.

    The Temple of Power was the citadel where the elder Trollans had placed the Aura of the Gods and the Star Tree, the ultimate source of power that should be protected from evil. That was the reason for these elders to forge the Sword of Power handed over to the heroic Cosmic Warriors. So, it made sense that there was a big conflict in Trolla, pretty much as there was conflict in Eternia for the power held inside Castle Grayskull. As it would be expected, He-Man allied with the Defenders of Trolla; they were kind of waiting for him as a prophecy of sorts. Skeletor sought an alliance with the leader of the Revenge Squad, Lady Slither, presumably just to have some forces with him to besiege the Temple of Power.

    Skeletorís efforts to have Lady Slitherís forces by his side were fruitful, since they attacked the Temple of Power. The key factor that would allow Skeletor to succeed was that he was still in possession of the Vortex Beam controller device (lost by Horde Prime). The device had not enough power to teletransport Skeletor and an army to any other world, but it was enough to teletransport Skeletor alone INTO the Temple of Power. He-Man, however, didnít need an artifact to follow Skeletor inside the temple, because he had the Sword of He, forged in Trolla, not only as a weapon, but also a key to open the doors of the temple, similarly as it was a key to open the jaw bridge of Castle Grayskull.

    Inside the temple both, Skeletor and He-Man, had access to a higher level of power, which they harnessed and used to battle against each other. This was the final battle of the two champions where He-Man, advised by the Sorceress, invoked the Power of Grayskull inside the Temple of Power. The resulting power from such an action was so tremendous that when it hit Sekeletor, the two entities inside him were separated. Demo-Man, the demonic being that saved Keldor from death by being merged with him, flew free from Trolla, while the injured Keldor was left to die, not without having a last moment of redemption, asking He-Man to protect the people from Eternia, gar and human alike.

    Have updated my epic timelines of Eternia. Please check them out when you have a bit of time. The last few years of bios have been included. Itís been a nightmare because as time passes the bios have tended to contradict themselves in some places.
    That being said I love the masters Mondays and thankful to all involved, long may they continue

    That's true, very difficult task to unify a coherent history from fragments. That's why i tackled only the main time line, what events put in motion the main changes in ages of the Eternian history, it was like a summary. But a detailed history compendium like yours was beyond my capabilities, great job!

    The Quest for She-Ra is framed within the next 9-10 years after the New Adventures era. In the final attack to Horde World, She-Ra was left alone to face Horde Prime, since He-Man and Skeletor were accidentally transported to Trolla by the Vortex Beam controller, and they remained there because such a device didnít have the power to get them back and they engaged in their final battle that ended with the death of Skeletor.

    She-Ra actually slew Horde Prime, but his evil spirit possessed her and caused an acute amnesia. Seeing an opportunity in this situation, the last brother of Hordak and Prime, Hord-Or, captured She-Ra, gave her the mask of Despara, manipulated her with lies and promises and sent her to fight in the cosmic arena of the Game Master. Her many victories over the years earned a fortune for Horde-Or. Gradually, Primeís spirit possessing She-Ra recreated the persona of Despara, who desired revenge for Hordakís death, her false father. This persona grew in the psyche of She-Ra, and got tired of being a mere pawn, so she started to plan her revenge against Skeletor and He-Man, blaming them for the destruction of her supposed father, Hordak.

    After the events in Trolla, which ended with the death of Skeletor, He-Man started a quest to search for his sister, but evidently he failed in doing so. No details are available as of now about where this quest led He-Man to, except for his participation in the battles that Roboto led to free the inhabitants of the planet Robotica from the malevolent artificial intelligence, the Great-Putor. After they defeated the tyrant, Roboto joined He-Man to continue the quest for She-Ra.

    The quest for She-Ra was interrupted when He-Man received news of King Randor passing away. He-Man raced towards Eternia, finally; this time as the new king, heir to the throne of Eternos Palace. Adam had married Teela in secret, before leaving Eternia around 16 years ago. Now Teela was the Sorceress, and He-Man (Adam) was the king, so they established the new center of governance in Castle Grayskull, since Teela could not leave the castle. Also, Adam found that he had a son that was conceived when Teela and Adam got married. Their son was named Dare. King He-Man was crowned and he also found that there was a new Masters team assembled. Orko was still in the court, though. During the reign of Skeletor, Adam had revealed his identity as He-Man, and he remained as He-Man during all the years he was in space fighting the Horde Empire and searching for She-Ra, so when he was crowned he decided to be known as King He-Man, instead of King Adam. However, he also decided to put the Sword of Power to rest, and with the help of Orko he plunged the sword into an anvil protected with a status field so that only his worthy descendants could extract it from the anvil to wield it.

    Meanwhile, Despara (She-Ra in her new persona) gathered an army of Skelcons and with the help of the Cosmic Enforcers, now under the leadership of the Supreme Arbitor, the body of Skeletor, a mere mindless zombie, was resurrected and kind of enslaved by Despara. Itís worth mentioning that by this time Zodac was supposed to be dead, and the Supreme Arbitor was the absolute chief of the Cosmic Enforcers ranks. This character had an extreme obsession with neutrality that led him to think that the balance had been affected with the end of the Horde Empire and Skeletor, so the evil needed some help for the balance to be restored. Years later it would be known that Zodac was alive and had to feign his death to align some forces to fight the gone-mad Supreme Arbitor.

    Four months later after the return of King He-Man to Eternia, Despara arrived with her army of Skelcons attacking Castle Grayskull. He-Man took his old electronic sword used back in the days when he had not reunited the two halves of the Sword of Power, and sided by the New Masters, tried to defend the castle. However, Despara captured He-Man and mutilated and decapitated Skeletorís reanimated corpse to show He-Man that this was the beginning of her revenge.

    In that critical situation, He-Manís son, led by desperation to rescue his father, was able to extract the Sword of Power from the anvil, and invoked the power of Grayskull. Then he ran to battle and fought Despara. During the combat she touched the Sword of Power and that contact expelled the corrupting spirit of Horde Prime, which was immediately trapped by a spell casted by Orko, and Despara personality was destroyed forever, so She-Ra recovered her own consciousness and personality.

    He-Ro, Son of He-Man

    The Quest for She-Ra ended with the rise of a new champion for Eternia: He-Ro II, which was the name Dare took for his persona when transformed by the power of Grayskull, honoring his ancestor, He-Ro, the Cosmic Warrior that brought the Sword of Power to Eternia in the first place.

    Eternia would not only see the rise of a new champion of good, but also a new adversary. Years ago, Evil-Lyn had escaped to the future to join his son Malkyn (nicknamed ďSkeleteenĒ), and although she was depowered, she still had deep knowledge of dark magic, so she taught Malkyn and told him stories about his father, Skeletor, which fascinated and influenced him, planting the seed in him of a desire for retribution and vengeance.

    However, the biggest threat was not Skeleteen alone, but the dangerous alliance he looked for (influenced by his mother, who had a long history of missteps to join the wrong side). With a Cosmic Key prototype (presumably the same that helped Skeletor to break into the Eternos Palace when he overthrew King Randor by sending him to Despondos), Skeleteen aided the Unnamed One to finally break the last barrier trapping him in the Nameless Dimension. Together, Evil-Lyn, Skeleteen and the Unnamed One gathered some more warriors for their army, including Jitsu, who had been governing Snake Mountain in the absence of Skeletor, Demo-Man (who had abandoned Keldorís body when He-Man defeated Skeletor in Trolla), Modulok and Multi-Bot.

    Immediately after She-Ra recovered her personality after a decade of amnesia, the Unnamed Oneís forces made their first and powerful attack: they completely destroyed Castle Grayskull. The Unnamed one was searching for the Starseed and the Sword of He to gain access to it. Orko teletransported all of the allies there to Tundaria, the same caves where the Masters hid when they became renegades during the reign of King Skeletor; and for the same reason, such vaes were protected by powerful spells that lasted from those times.

    The Unnamed one was searching for the Sword of He, to access the power of the Starseed. He made Castle Grayskull collapse because his plan was to look for both of the magical objects in the debris of such a destruction. The Unnamed One deployed his followers to locate the sword and sent Skeleteen back to the moon of Droom (where Evil-Lyn was) to gather more forces for him. Of course, Evil-Lyn nurtured the desires of revenge in his son (avenging his father, Skeletor, that is) and built a new army of Evil Warriors for him, and the old but still brutal Beast-Man was included. That army would apparently serve the interests of the Unnamed One, but ultimately it would be a tool for the own schemas and plots of Evil-Lyn and Skeleteen.

    Meanwhile, He-Ro II (Dare), He-Man, She-Ra and the rest of the heroic warriors were regrouping to fight back the powerful Unnamed One. The first move they made was to protect the Sword of He by sending Dare to the past (as a custodian and wielder of the sword), to the times of Preternia. This was done with the use of technology developed from the Cosmic Key. In Preternia, Dare met the original He-Ro and became his apprentice to be both a hero and a wizard.

    The Separation Spell tablet was found and handed over to the Unnamed One, who casted the spell to find the Starseed, and the whole planet started to break apart. Not even the mighty Procrustus was able to keep both hemispheres together. Teela (the Sorceress) had been able to escape Castle Grayskull when it was destroyed, and she gathered other wizards to try to stop the effects of the Separation Spell. She had the help of Orko, Master Sebrian from Primus, and the Green Goddess. An old and depowered Evil-Lyn joined them, again changing sides, and offered help to join her magical powers (if restored) to that attempt to stop the separation of the planet. The Sorceress restored Evil-Lynís powers, and even her youth, but their combined powers were not enough. Only the intervention of the cosmic deity, Master of Balance, Tug-O-War, saved the planet and kept it safe. However, after completing this huge task, he disappeared. So, the Unnamed One was in possession of the Starseed, and he only needed the Sword of He to complete his millenary objective of seizing the power of the Universe.

    Third Ultimate Battleground
    Dare completed his journey in Preternia, mentored by the original He-Ro, and aided by his magic he returned to the present time. The Unnamed One was kind of waiting for him to finally get the Sword of Power, but Dare (in the He-Ro II persona) was ready to fight him as both a hero and a wizard: using the magic he learned in Preternia, Dare summoned heroes from different places to aid him in this need. Even Granamyr and Procrustus were on Dareís side, while The Unnamed One had an army of evil warriors. This was how the Third Ultimate Battleground started. .Each wizard also summoned temporary magical incarnations of old heroes and villains from other times.

    Orko and The Unnamed One engaged in a singular combat, but it was just a distraction that Dare used to slay The Unnamed One from his back, in a peculiarly anti-hero move. That was the end of the battle, and those brought to it from other places and times returned to where they were needed, thanks to yet another spell from Dare. Skeleteen flew away with his forces, promising to conquer Eternia.

    During the following 5 years He-Ro II (Dare) and Skeleteen would fight each other, pretty much as their fathers did before them. Eternia was being ruled by King He-Man.

    The Reawakening
    The body of Skeletor had been brought to Eternia by Despara, as a mindless zombie, but the Havoc Staff had remained in Trolla, in Skeletorís grave. Eventually, Skeleteen dispatched an old ally of his father, the space mutant Crita, to retrieve the staff from that site in Trolla. She was successful, and handed it over to Skeleteen. In his hands, the staff regained its full power, since Skeleteen was the rightful heir of the kings of Zalesia, being the grandson of the Faceless One, who had been the king Nikolas Powers.

    As always, throughout the modern history of Eternia, Evil-Lyn tried to scheme for the search of power. With her knowledge and research, as well as the power of the Havoc Staff itself, she casted a spell that was intended to resurrect Skeletor. This was the beginning of the era that was called The Reawakening. The initial result of the spell was the resurrection of Keldor, instead of Skeletor, but the spell was too strong, and some other dead heroes and villains also rose from death, with varying degrees of mindlessness or amnesia.

    Keldor was seemingly good and redeemed, and he was fond of his son. He convinced King He-Man to work with him and The Sorceress (Teela) to rebuild Castle Grayskull. They worked also with other powerful mages on this task, and only when this was completed, the reawakening spell seemed to be complete too, as the restoration of the castle had also effect on other resurrected heroes and villains, who gained lucidity. The restoration of Castle Grayskull also restored the youth of She-Ra and He-Man. Prince Dare returned the Sword of Power to his rejuvenated father.

    This huge phenomenon was like a reset of Eternia, some of the old friends and foes returned from death, and with the new threats, He-Man and She-Ra assumed both responsibilities: rulers of the planet and champions of good. She-Ra was convinced by his brother to be the Queen of the Dark Hemisphere, which she had visited years ago and wanted to bring some relief to the suffering people of that hemisphere. She actually brought prosperity to the Dark Hemisphere by ruling with the Scepter of Power.

    Keldor had pushed to rebuild Castle Grayskull ostensibly to end the chaos of the Reawakening, but secretly to bring back the Great Eye. Keldor betrayed the trust put on him and tried to seize Castle Grayskull again to gain the power in it and its restored magical objects, but the young He-Man and the reassembled and revived heroic warriors stopped Keldor from achieving his goal. However, he was able to keep the Great Eye. and, eager to be more powerful, willingly transformed himself again into Skeletor. He took back the Havoc Staff that Skeleteen had been rightfully wielding during the years when his father was dead, and this drove a wedge between them. Skeletor brutalized his son, until Skeleteen left Snake Mountain, and eventually redeemed himself by using his dark magic to help others, and even formed an uneasy alliance with his cousin Dare.

    Some of the notable heroes and villains resurrected by the Reawakening spell were: Teela Na (previous Sorceress, Teelaís mother), Stratos, Duncan (Man-At-Arms), Mer-Man, King Hsss and Rattlor. Additionally, He-Ro returned as a ghost that continued mentoring Dare; and Hordak also returned as a ghost that was able to inhabit a new mechanical body built by Modulok.

    Teela Na originally appeared in her falcon shape, but when Castle Grayskull was restored she was able to return to her human form and later became the leader of the new Council of Elders.

    King Miro had died of old age after the Second Ultimate Battleground, but resurrected after the Reawakening, he fought against Count Marzo and the Enchantress again, who had sent him to Despondos when he was king of Eternos. Miro had the help of his great grandson Dare and his grandson Malkyn (Skeleteen). Also, there were rumors that Randor had come back to life, but had not been found yet. Miro, Duncan, Queen Marlena and Dare joined on a quest to find King Randor.

    The Reawakening also led to a severe imbalance in the universe, attracting the attention of the Supreme Arbitor, an ancient Cosmic Enforcer, who planned to vaporize several cities throughout the Universe to counterbalance the resurrections caused by the Reawakening spell. Zodac (who was the one uncovering the Supreme Arbitorís plan, which led Zodac to feign his own death), Strobo, Montork (Orkoís uncle), Slamurai, He-Man and other heroes undertook a mission to stop the insane Supreme Arbitor and his followers before they could massively murder millions of people.

    Skeletor tricked the evil snake goddess Serpentia into revealing the secret language of the old gods, which allowed him to decipher the secrets of the Great Eye and steal the divinity of the old gods for himself. He gained a new godly armor and helmet with enhanced power, and fought He-Man at Castle Grayskull, but lost the Havoc Staff, which was broken by He-Man during the battle. In a last attack, trying to kill He-Man, Skeletor fell into the Dwell of Souls, where he swore that one day, he would return.
