Grandmaster Meio

The origins of Meio are unknown, but he suddenly appeared on Earth and became its supreme ruler in a few short years. It is speculated that Meio may be an alien hundreds of years old. Regardless of his origins, his intentions are clear; world domination and the eradication of all human life on Earth, so he can build his utopian vision of the world.

General Mikiel

General Mikiel is an opportunist who finds his place at the side of whoever is in power at the moment. He controls Kazakh City’s police force, government operations, as well as any military operations for the Grandmaster. Corrupt and constantly scheming, Mikiel has augmented his own body in an attempt to become a formidable weapon in his own right.

Professor Schlange

Professor Schlange is the directing scientist and controller of Meio’s Research Facility. In Schlange’s diabolical view, justice, well-being, and kindness are secondary to the advancement of research and scientific knowledge. Schlange believes the flesh is merely a vehicle and augments it with reckless-abandon, going so far as to cybernetically integrate his entire body into the Research Facility, becoming more machine than man. Egotistical to the point of insanity, Schlange is a formidable and unpredictable foe.


Juroung fashions himself as the true disciple of Meio and enforcer of Meio’s law in The Underground. A hysterical fanatic of the Grandmaster, he blindly obeys, thinking nothing of himself. He is so devoted that he sees every piece of refuse dumped into the Underground from the Research Facility as a “gift from god”. Juroung holds vigil in The Underground, protecting the prototype Gravitron, to the death.
