THE GORMA

Gorma Emperor XV: Matoi protested the Dai Tribe’s efforts to disperse the Gorma Tribe about 6,000 years ago. The emperor at the time seemed willing to let the Gorma disband. Matoi sought power to keep that from happening. He was in possession of a book that had belonged to an ancient cult called the Ka’zuul, which worshipped an evil spirit known as DaiSatan. In the early age of the Daos civilization, a member of the Shura named Meduya had stumbled upon the book and used its power to become a warlock that summoned minor demons and spirits to his bidding. The Gorma had slain Meduya and taken the book, which was deemed too dangerous to exist. The Gorma tried to destroy the book, but it withstood even fire. The Dai feared that someone would stumble upon the book if it was simply cast away, so they entrusted its care to the Gorma Tribe to serve as its guardian and ensure its pages were never opened again. Matoi’s family was picked to guard the book, and it was passed along his bloodline from generation to generation. Matoi used the book to reach out for DaiSatan, but since the evil spirit had already been banished by Zordon, his mind was drawn to a great lake of fire and a massive beast that lived within its flames. The Great Beast of Hell known as the Mogralord. Matoi pleaded with the Mogralord for strength, and the Great Beast of Hell answered the call through these words: “I will make the Gorma my eyes on the mortal plane. And I will teach you new ways to strengthen this Life Force that courses through your veins. This Kiryoku. Through the suffering and despair of others, the flow of Life Force within you will churn into Rinki, power that is born from a heart of hatred and anger. In return, you will spread carnage across the mortal plane, and the slain souls of the damned will be mine to toy with.” Matoi used this new power to overthrow the emperor, take control of the Gorma, and start the war against the Dai Tribe.
