From god to mortal

Most stories like to make you believe that happy endings are possible. Well, not all of them have happy endings, especially Zynorok's. Zynorok was born in a distant city called Patran. In Patran, there are very few possibilities that one can be born with an extraordinary ability. Zynorok was among the few that were born with abilities. The abilities that Zynorok possessed made him worthy to be deemed a god among others. He was able to fly, control the weather, have superhuman strength and speed, read people's thoughts, and phase through objects. Life didn't always treat Zynorok fair in the beginning; he was bullied and mistreated by other children for being different, and the adults were petrified of him due to his rare powers. As Zynorok would suffer in his youth, he would look for reassurance from the gods. The gods always told Zynorok that there will be a day where he'll be needed most by those who fear him. And that day came. Zynorok, fully developed, with a toned body, peculiarly colored eyes, olive-colored skin, and locs was in full control of his powers and knew he would have to use them to protect the city from the approaching threat. This monster's goal was to devour the entire city and enslave any survivors from his sweep. The monster was over 7 feet in stature, had horns on each side of its head, scaly skin, and demonic-looking eyes. Although there were many dangers of taking on this beast, Zynorok saw this as an opportunity to prove himself to the people of Patran.

As Zynorok came into contact with the beast, he didn't feel an ounce of fear. The beast charged at him with all its might and Zynorok prepared himself for the impact of the clash between him and the beast. Punches, kicks, and lighting were all sent in the beast's direction, defeating him and finally giving Zynorok a chance to prove that he could protect those who once feared him. Proud and safe, the city congratulated Zynorok on his victory and gave him the respect he deserved. In the event of embracing his glory, it all went to Zynorok's head, and he would begin to look at the people as insects instead of actual people. He began to make them bow down to him, and pray to only him! The gods were displeased with Zynorok's views and actions, and thus, the abilities that made him stand out were stripped from him in a matter of seconds. Now, Zynorok would be living among the rest of the people that he forced to praise and bow down to him. The city's protector had become the city's most hated person once again.
