In an alternate future the being known as Prophet became corrupt and evil and gave birth to the evil that is crypt. How he came back in time is unknown but he took “Judas” a young woman under his wings and gave her superhuman powers. He instructed her to take his essence to a clone of modern-day Prophet in case he was ever killed. When the day did come his essence changed the cloned prophet cyborg into his new body. He clashed with his modern-day counterpart and when Judas turned against him he killed her and joined the forces of hell under Lord Chapel.
