Ashtoreth was born in 1080, to a poor family in the Holy Roman Empire. At 15 he was the perfect age to join the Crusade. It was his duty and he took up arms. He was never strong and being one of the smallest men who made it in the first wave he hung out at base while the richer and better equipped went in first.
While at a base camp he and his fellow men were attacked. He was not killed neither were most of the men. After they were ambushed and out-numbered they were captured and brought back to a camp. Men were being tortured left and right. Some were getting there tongues cut out before being executed., others impaled on spikes and others starved to death. Ashtoreth was one of these men. Kept in a bunker and watching friends he had made on the long trek be tortured and killed while he remembered a book he had read along with the bible on his trek. One day he was pulled out of the bunker and put in a stock, where they preceded to take his teeth out asking him questions in Arabic a language he had not learned. Soon the anger, passion and hate a flowed out of him as he chanted,
"EXECUTE JUDGMENT, PUNISH THEM! EXECUTE JUDGMENT, PUNISH THEM! EXECUTE JUDGMENT, PUNISH THEM! EXECUTE JUDGMENT, PUNISH THEM! EXECUTE JUDGMENT, PUNISH THEM!"
While he did this he dead as the book of the dead told him and thought of the dead rising. His thoughts made Psalm 147:7 Bring everyone dead with-in 100 yards of him raise from the dead. Many bodies of crusaders raising and doing his minds bidding. The tortures tried to fight back but the dead bodies seemed to be impervious to damage. The blank white eyes of the corpses also made some of them fill with fear. Those who didn't run were soon bitten and converted to dead zombie under the control of Ashtoreth.
Finally, Ashtoreth had stopped the torture. His zombies however scared away his friends. He was still in stocks and had no way to get out. He yelled at his zombies but to no response. They just shuffled around and looked for something to eat. They did not die, however Ashtoreth did. Starving to death in the stocks of the enemy army. However, after three days he raised. Thanks to a prayer he said. That Prayer Being "Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."" The man having become a skinny tan bone bag. He lifted his neck to find his head crack off.
His head fell onto the floor as he looked around soon he had his body come over and pick it up. With a "CRACK!" He put his head back on and looked around to find his army of zombies still around. He had to get revenge. So, he had lead his army into the city through an eastern passage. All the troops being on the Western side of the city to fight off the European offensive charge.
Going through the back of the city his zombies raided homes killing anyone and converting them. The village was mostly populated by women and children. Soon the Islamic troops found a dead army marching up there flanks. A European army pushing there front. He came under crossfire, his eyes glowing red which separated him from the other undead. As arrows shot at him he regenerated around them. Some charged at him, but as they did he threw up a barrage of sod to catch the sword and the soldier was eaten by his allies.
The European armies couldn't believe what was happening. The remainder of the Islamic troops. Were controlled by Ashtoreth as he chanted in a low groaning voice, "Bind their Kings with chains, bind their nobles with fetters of Iron." With that Ashtoreth took control making them drop there weapons and give into the demands of the troops. With that Ashtoreth and all his army collapsed getting what he wanted, Revenge.
After that his troops took him and his troops home to the Holy Roman Empire. He was never mentioned the army not wanting to come back and speak of occult happenings. Ashtoreth was dormant, not dead. He slept and like normal sleep he had not idea when he would wake.
2010, Ashtoreth awoken after his long sleep. He raised to a world full of Half Christians and a less then strict policy on other religions. His religion had gotten weak and feeble. Priest molesting children and the crusades of his time had stopped. He had to remind the world of the power of god.
