While his true place and date of birth aren't known, Jedah is resurrected in the desolate outer regions of Makai, the Devil World. His visions of what's to become of the world around him are things upon which he dwells heavily. Under the reign of Berial, the head of the Aenslaed family and true ruler of Makai, Jedah sees nothing but decay in the future of Makai. To him, it's sitting on the cusp of oblivion, and in his mind, he believes the only one that can save it is himself. To do this, Jedah believes every last soul must be united into a single soul so that peace can be brought to all. But for this to work, he needs a container; one that will be strong enough to hold all the souls, and that will enable him to not make the same mistake he feels Berial did in the past. With this in mind, Jedah concocts a plan to gather up the most valuable souls, and unite them with himself in the hopes of making a container large enough to safely hold all the other souls.

In his battles, Jedah is able to use his powers to manipulate not only his own body, but also the spirit world around him. Through the use of large, almost scythe-like blades, and his own talon-tipped fingers, he can slice apart, or keep at bay, any who get in his way. He can also call up spirits to attack or hold his adversaries in place as he steals some of their life force. All this combines into a dark warrior that's powerful enough to bring about his plans. But in the end, is he truly a Dark Messiah, or merely a Grim Reaper-esque madman?
