Synopsis for "Saga of the Serpent Crown, Chapter 3: Serpent in the Garden"Edit

The following story was narrated by Uatu the Watcher. He witnessed the origin of beings on the evolutionary borderline between apes and humans. Sise-Neg created a lush, green garden-like environment for two of these creatures. The unnamed couple became the ancestors of an entire tribe. These tribe lived in a migratory lifestyle, never settling in one place. But each year, their leader and their mate would return to the ancestral garden. It was sacred to them. One year, the leader and his mate discovered their sacred tribe occupied by another tribe. The strangers were free from the signs of care and hardship that marked the members of their own tribe, as if all their needs and desired were sated. The leader of the strangers communicated with them telepathically. Informing them that they are the tribe of Set, cared for, fed, given warmth, and kept healthy and alive by their patron god. He invited the leader and his mate to join their ranks, promising them a happy life.

The couple asked what they had to do. The leader of the tribe of Set informed them that mighty beings were coming from the sky, the Celestials. In preparation for their arrival, the couple could help kill their original tribe and feed them to Set. The couple themselves would safely survive. The two wanderers realized the stranger was evil and reacted violently, killing him. In death, the Serpent-Man reverted to his true form. The wanderers escaped back to their tribe and led them to attack the Serpent-Men. They drove their enemies away from the garden. Just as the battle was finishing, the First Host of the Celestials arrived. Gaea also arrived and beckoned the victorious tribe forward to accept the gifts of the space gods.

Gammenon the Gatherer collected the wanderers and transported them to the Celestial ship. The envious Serpent-Men attempted to approach the ship but were driven away by Arishem the Judge. Within their ship, the Celestials altered the genetic make-up of the wanderers, creating three races of humanity. There are the Eternals, virtual immortals with vast powers, the Deviants whose genetic structure varies wildly. The Celestials let the remaining wanderers evolve naturally into normal humans but give them latent genes that would someday produce superhumans.

The Serpent-Men and other new demonic races went on to terrorize the emerging human race. But humanity grew strong and fought back, eventually forcing the remaining Serpent-Men into hiding. The legendary king Kull of pre-cataclysmic Atlantis would eventually slay most of the last Serpent-Men on Earth. Most but not all There Uatu ended his story.
