Lucemon was defeated and killed 3 times and of course, that would piss off!
He wants to make everybody pay for his suffering beginning with Takuya Kanbara, his friends and the Digispirits and capture the goddamned blonde digidestined that dared to humiliate him the last time with Omegamon-X.
After being in a slumber for uncountable years, weakened; his path crossed with another divine being: SATURN ANGEMON.
Saturn offered his service and loyalty to Lucemon in exchange for getting back what it was taken away from him…his own reality. Lucemon agreed to the deal as long as Saturn Angemon agreed to turn his universe into the new EDEN.
When referring to Saturn Angemon, we are speaking about a fallen Digital angel of Time.
He wasn´t supposed to exist in first place.
He´s the product of a Time Paradox created by a series of reckless actions by Nova Takariyama and Tempus Angemon!
When Nova was 14, her genius brother Magnus came up with a project for the upcoming Science Fair at his school: OUTWORLDS.
Magnus developed a techno bracelet which he called DIGIVICE and was 100% positive that with its programming he could open windows to other universe, just like in Stargate. Being him also a musical prodigy, he also fused an old organ with a computer and with his digivice ´s powers, he programed the Frankestein apparatus to open inter dimensional doors while playing certain tunes.
“If sound causes alteration to the matter, like Pythagoras said, then the correct musical frequencies can lead to countless of worlds!”
But in his first stint, Magnus vanished and never came back. The only thing that returned was his digivice and Nova herself , because the portal was still opened, ended being sucked into the Other Side. Unlike Magnus she showed up in the neighboring Digiworld, from reality 012 (which was both her and Magnus´s original reality. Magnus was slated to be in that digiworld but he was teleported to Digimon Next Manga´s one) . She would spend an entire year stuck in that world, as an unwitting digidestined and helping everybody to defeat Piedmon (who by the way was the Piedmon from Adventures 01 who appeared in that world after being defeated by Magna Angemon´s Gate of Destiny)
Eventually she would go back home and when aged 16, she would be partnered once more with an Angemon. This Angemon ´s most powerful form is Tempus Angemon and girl and digital angel reached a deal: he helps her track and bring back Magnus Takariyama and then he was free to go.
She had to train hard during 2 years before actually venturing into the Multiverse and besides, strengthening Digital Angel & Human partner´s bond so Angemon could reach once again the Tempus Angemon Supreme form. (And that wasn´t a piece of cake at all since Nova had a grudge against Angemon for ditching her years prior and him being an unapologetic asshole when imposing himself into her life in USA)
Their relationship was great yet sometimes volatile and while none of them didn´t want to openly admit it, they had a lingering sexual tension between them. (She many times manifested that she wished he was like the other digital creatures that were able to revert into a cutie rookie form and not being a 100% guy!)
Nova was also dating Ryo Akiyama and the angel´s presence didn´t help very much on Ryo ´s insecurities towards his girl. Who could feel tranquil knowing that your girlfriend is living with a winged Adonis 24/7 ?! Besides Tia Yagami and her friends were constantly betting about the day Nova would dump him for Ange.
Ange (Angemon´s civilian ID) also felt conflicted about his partner´s relationship although he never dared to openly complain about it (Tia Yagami and the rest of the digidestineds gave him several lectures about that foreign concept about love, relationships and how never to get between a couple) Although he respected Akiyama and being good pals with his Patamon and Gatomon as well the other digimons and digidestineds, his heart couldn´t dismiss the jealousy thing.
When Nova was 18, she was totally obsessed to find out what really happened to her missing brother Magnus while Tempus Angemon, Takeru Takaishi´s first Angemon (he died and instead of being reborn back as an egg by Takeru´s side he was revived in the Digiworld from reality 12) still missed Takeru dearly and couldn´t accept the fact that another Angemon took his place. Besides the non-spoken sexual tension between Nova and Ange increased at such point that they couldn´t help but argue more than ever. The slightest disagreement could ignite a fight between them. Ange couldn´t admit that he was more and more jealous about her relationship with Ryo Akiyama especially when the latter hinted about giving her a ring in a nearby future.
Nova meanwhile struggled to deny her growing feelings towards Ange, the passionate dreams that left her covered in sweat and guilt because the one who appeared in her dreams and seduced her every night wasn´t her boyfriend ; to overcome her struggles Nova would constantly remind herself that they only shared a temporal partnership and she still still held some trust issues with the angel.
One night Tempus Angemon grabbed her digivice and went through its data until he finally managed to locate, unlock and accessthe hidden information and got to know what really happened to Magnus.
Ange almost could not stomach the truth. What happened to Magnus was so tragic, heartbreaking that Ange felt Nova wouldn´t be able to take it and decided to wait until the right time came before spilling his guts. He had the feeling Nova´s heart was quite fragile and didn´t want to see her breaking down.
But his good intentions went to the drains on Christmas Eve, Ryo gave the rumored ring to his girlfriend and she didn´t know what to do. Ryo insisted about her keeping the ring and let her think about it. Ange, completely heartbroken, couldn´t hold his jealousy any longer and after the party he ended having an argument with Nova.
“If you want to end our society that much, then be so!”
Nova , annoyed as well, accused him of being an asshole and that she couldn´t wait to have their promise fulfilled so they could finally go through different paths and never meeting again….
“Then that´s it. I already found the truth about him” declared Ange, acrid and Nova bitter as well activated her digivice and called upon the Tempus Angemon persona.
Feeling bitter toward each other the pair did not think things properly and traveled back through time and space to prevent Magnus from being summoned to reality 09. Magnus never used the digivice and stayed home with his sister…and that proved to be the biggest mistake of their lives. Interfering with Magnus´s summoning ended causing a chain of paradoxes across several realities and the destiny of many digiworlds and digidestineds met with a catastrophic phenomenon : The Omega Effect.
A butterfly effect had taken place in simultaneous realities and literally screwed up the timelines.
Reality 09 Yggdrasil succumbed to an Quartzmon attack and the digidestineds that were selected to fight against him failed in their missions. Clavis Angemon was unable to find somebody else to go to their rescue tried to overtake Quartzmon by himself only to be killed. Tsurugi Tatsuno was never born because his grandfather never made it back home; neither his comrades could escape Quartzmon and Yggdrasil never managed to free itself. Those events nefarious consequences to both the Real and Digital Worlds and beyond their limits. Akarimon never met Magnus hence not falling in love with him and neither his revelation about being Shukumeimon; she never followed him to reality 01 and reborn as Hikari Yagami. Magnus , stuck in the safety of his reality 12, never traveled to either reality 09 nor reincarnate as Takeru Takaishi.
Taichi Yagami and Yamatto Ishida, when selected as digidestineds from reality 01, never had siblings. Neither Patamon and Gatomon met their destined ones and neither did the crests of light and hope, leaving the group of digidestineds composed by only 6 people instead of 8. Patamon had to learn to digivolve all by himself when the group fought relentlessly against a Devimon who had absorved all the black gears into his body thus making him a God-like threat. Filled with sadness and anger, Patamon digivolved into a black clothed Angemon: Ouhou Angemon. (retribution)
His hand summoned the energy of the fallen digimons and in name of justice unleashed the Hand of Retribution, erasing Piedmon for good. The following adventures were more or less the same until Myotismon escaped to Tokyo and unlike the reality 01´s original counterpart he caused way more problems and almost got away with his campaign of destruction with a Gatomon fully by his side, having digivolved into a brainwashed Angewomon. The digidestineds fought the best way they could but Angemon, once again filled with anger, digivolved into Saturn Angemon and ended killing both. Almost at the same time a gate opened and Ryo Akiyama and Ken Ichijouji were summoned to the Digiworld. In this case they ended meeting Millenniunmon, who was awoken earlier than programmed, and attempted to possess both kids. Millenniunmon released dark spores in the air and Ryo pushed Ken away from one of the spores´way thus receiving it in his body. Before giving into the spore´s evil magic Ryo also opened a portal and pushed his friend back to the real world.
While Saturn Angemon and the digidestineds were getting rid of Myotismon, Millenniunmon suddenly made it to the real world with Ryo as his digidestined and revived Myotismon and brough in the other dark masters as well. They launched a real Apocalypse through Tokyo yet Saturn Angemon was 100% certain they could get rid of them as well…which turned to be wrong. Millenniunmon and Ryo were at another level and proceeded to assimilate anything that were in their way.
Meanwhile even the realities 07,08, 11 and others were suffering devastating effects.
Clavis Angemon from reality 09 died and was reborn as Steve Worthington and Mirei Mikagura . Mirei was supposed to guide a set of digidestineds, like Aiba and help them undo another underlying paradox that was taking place in the digiworld yet she didnñt make it…or still didn´t. Reality 07 was literally being split in quarters due to the toxicity of 01…
Nova and Ange, still shocked with the apocalyptic scenes and unable to think properly they tried to go back in time once again and prevent themselves from causing the mistake. Instead a mysterious voice spoke at them in the interface.
“To solve the formula go back forth in the past, bring both Magnus Takariyama and Takeru Takaishi to the actual Omega…you only have one chance before Omega turns permanent”
Not having a better solution Tempus Angemon and Nova complied and raced against Time before the paradox reality reached its full form completely; Tempus searched for Magnus while Nova went for Takeru. The woman t landed on the right moment Malomyotismon as defeated for good and Oikawa´s death.
“Takeru Takaishi …if he´s really my brother´s future selfy…he may…fix everything!” Without asking for his permission, she took the 11 year old Takeru from his friends´s side and in a whim teleported him to Omega. The main battle was taking place in the heart of Odaiba and Takeru´s shock was so huge that he ended passing out, much to Nova and Ange´s surprise.
Tempus Angemon was already back there, with Magnus Takariyama. The scenario was so bad that he had no choice but to fight against Yggdrasil-Milleniunmon and assist the digidestineds who were falling one by one; Magnus joined him. Nova and Takeru , in the meantime tried to help a group of people who were trapped in the line of fire…Mirei Mikagura, Elizabeth and Logan Montgomery and Steve Worthington. The city was being destroyed badly, buildings collapsed like wall of cards; Steve noticed an impending debris falling over Nova and Mirei and ended pushing them, taking the damage. Mirei passed out and Nova ´s heart broke in a thousand of pieces. Magnus and Takeru fought side by side until a series of falling debris threatened to harm Takeru and Magnus pushed him away. As soon as the lads got in direct contact a light emerged from their digivices, resounding with Nova´s. Magnus and Tk ´s bodies shone and suddenly the two were gone.
A powerful golden light pierced the sky and a winged individual took the lads´place. The deity presented himself as Shukumeimon, an Angel of Destiny and keeper of Nexus. Time momentarily froze.
After a brief look at his surroundings Shukumeimon declared the paradox being a monstrosity in cosmic scales and that it should burn from its roots. Without flinching he assumed his Burst Mode and unleashed the powers all over the Multiversity, beginning with the paradox-ed reality 01. Declaring his actions by the Will of Nexus he launched his own Apocalypse. There was no way to stop him and Shukumeimon effectively erased the Omega Effect and restored the old realities.
Tempus Angemon and Nova were ordered to leave the realm at once…but Nova pleaded Tempus to save Mirei and her friends´s lives.
“They didn´t ask for any of this. pLEASE..SAVE THEM!”
Tempus Angemon accepted and covered Nova and the rest in a protective shield and while leaving to another realm, Tempus still managed to see what was happening in the paradox. The Angel of Justice looked around and considered it was too corrupted to be allowed to exist and launched a huge light that ended impacting in other nearby realities as well. Time was reversed and all hints of Omega were erased. When the angel finished his job, he reverted as Takeru Takaishi and appeared on Nova´s arms, completely passed out.
Nova and Tempus decided to take the kid back to his original timeline (and so the 4 kids that Nova insisted to save) and ended erasing his memories as the angel in the process.
“I never thought that our second encounter would end like the first one…like a dream. But in order to protect your secret you have to forget what happened during these days. It´s a secret too important…for everybody´s sake, forget…”
Nova and Ange healed the other kids and took them to their homes, altering their current families´memories and make things convenient for the kids in case thy were not supposed to exist in reality 01. Realizing that their original reality was no more, Mirei and the others accepted the fixings. Eventually, though, they realized their families were too different from the original ones and would insist on going to reality 12 and become digidestineds.
But Reality 01 Omega wasn´t completely gone. The Angel of Justice in the end let go some of its elements (on purpose or not, only he knows!) and one of them was none other than Magna Angemon. The angel did not take it well the erasure of his reality and his anger was such that he lost his mind end ended turning into Saturn Angemon.
And he´s willing to do everything to have his reality back, even if it´s a paradox….even if he had to sacrifice half a multiverse. For him, Nova Takariyama and Tempus Angemon took EVERYTHING AWAY FROM HIM…
