Notes by the Nuburea Cult
Findings by the followers of the evil demigod Nuburea. You seized them during an adventure with the sensational-sounding name:
Messenger of Death
It began with you preventing Arachnos from setting up a base in the heart of Paragon City. You met a seeming fellow heroine calling herself just "the Messenger". Only when she had already left did you notice that she had killed the soldiers.
It turned out that the Messenger had selected more vilainous factions as her victims, mostly sparing you being considered a suspect yourself. However, Freedom Corps feared that the villains could take revenge on innocents, and you did not even know anything about the vigilante's motives.
Members of the Circle of Thorns stated that "the Messenger" was an immortal demigoddess by the name of Ankomhoj, who had millennia ago terrorized northern Africa; back then it had taken divine intervention to stop her. Apparently, her followers had succeeded in resurrecting her, and reports from Africa seemed to confirm this. When you finally managed to arrest the determined but actually still heavily weakened Messenger however, she claimed to be a servant of god of death Osiris who had thwarted the resurrection and begun to use Ankomhoj's body against more enemies of her master.
Apparently, Ankomhoj's followers had collaborated with those of another evil demigod named Nuburea, who were going to perform their own ritual in Paragon City. This proved true when you searched their alleged and actual headquarters.
The Nuburea Cult had kept information back from Ankomhoj's followers, which allowed them to resurrect the demigod with full power. Along with other heroes, the Messenger and some volunteers you attacked the ceremonial place, and the epic battle against the cult and Nuburea ended with your victory.
The ritual was easy to reverse, so you were able to banish Nuburea to the Netherworld once again. The Messenger eventually accepted the local laws when she saw that her chances of success would be greater by far if she worked together with the Paragon Heroes.
