“Ever feel like you were born in the wrong time? Like you should have been born earlier?” — Eddie Riggs

Eddie Riggs was born during this time, but was transported back in time to the Age of Metal by Ormagöden when he accidently spilled blood in his Belt Buckle during a concert.

In an effort to steal back the secrets of the Titans, the Emperor of the Tainted Coil, Succoria, travelled forward in time to this time period. When she found that Man inherited the legacy of Titans, she refused to return to her people, knowing they would be doomed. The civilised world drained her of her spirit, causing her to free her slaves and hide away in a cave. Riggnarok, being amongst the slaves, could not bring himself to slay the once-powerful demon. Instead, he cared for her, and a child resulted from their union: Eddie Riggs. Succoria died giving birth, and Riggnarok brought Eddie to be raised in the Modern Age, never telling him of his lineage.
