After many months of stumbling, with the first Rylinth falling to corruption, Cyrus established a second Rylinth capital city following the abandonment of the first.
The city blossomed with a multitude of inhabitants creating a variety of public works. After a prolonged peace, a mysterious voice appeared over the communications, which would later revealed to as Alearia. During the Alearia conflict, Cyrus was murdered by Marcus Servus in his sleep. Alearia kept his body in her temple, whilst his soul tesseract fled to an abandoned mineshaft. During this time, Rylinth was subjected to a period of turmoil involving the destruction of B.R.U.C.E and several invasions from Alearia. The tesseract was then recovered by the Heroes, and reunited with the body following the defeat of Alearia. Cyrus was then resurrected, and continued to rule over Rylinth without further disruption.
The imprisoned Lilith was the driving force behind Cyrus' revival, which inspired Cyrus to seek out the goddess and free her using a soul tesseract obtained by Zila Cinis. Using the AI systems, Lilith was pinpointed to the city of Cassius' Landing. Her revival was then executed by the Heroes.
When strange blue crystals began forming throughout the cities, Cyrus took action to find the source. He appointed Lucila to uncover the source, and as more heroes fell to the Balkite plague, Cyrus instructed those unaffected and those yet to be fully consumed to investigate Nevershire, discovered by Lucila. After the defeat of the hero-gone-demon, Nathan Winsmoore, Cyrus and Lilith removed his blessing, keeping him from coming back to life, and used Cerecite to rid the major cities of the Balkite infestation.
When Wilhelm was uncovered by S.C.A.R.L.E.T and the Heroes, Cyrus held several meetings with the unknown tinkerer. Following the reuniting of the Litwins, Wilhelm vanished for several weeks, enthralled by Rylinth's AI systems. It was then revealed that Wilhelm had made the revised version of Lucila, under commission from Cyrus. After which, Wilhelm had betrayed the King and laid siege to Capital Rylinth using a Tank and corrupted Lucila, who was built using the body of the deceased Ava. The King ordered the Heroes to defend the city, who quickly destroyed the tinkerer and his niece.
Lucius & Bal Guran Edit
Following the discovery of the Sanctum, heroes and gods alike, including Cyrus, marched northward to confront Lucius. It was revealed that Lucius had been manipulated by Bal Guran, an Arch-Demon, following the abuse of his daughter. A very long fight followed, which was ended by Cyrus landing a heavy blow on the weakened Arch-God. After the fight with Bal Guran himself, Lucius forfeit his powers to Cyrus.
Cyrus also negotiated a deal with the Void Leviathan to return Lilith and Alearia back to life, after they crumbled to dust during the fight with Lucius.
