See, back where I'm from, there was this bloke called Rassilon. Brilliant mind, basically managed to bring on a whole industrial space-time revolution with the help of a mate of his. But... the problem with some brilliant minds if they get bored too easily. Once you've figured out the secrets of the universe, you start looking for ways to play with it.
And that's what Rassilon did, he made these elaborate death games and used whoever he wanted as his playing pieces. Even found how to make himself immortal, though he didn't want to share that little trick with anyone. But these Gems... they're a bit like his games. Making people do whatever the person controlling them wants, like little pieces on a game board.
And I know, I know it can't be Rassilon and his mates because we're fictional here.
... But I still can't help thinking 'what if'.
