1 Year before the Chaos Wars: Within the Multi-verse world, The Arsenal led a militarized force called "Burning Ravens" to defend citizens from what would possibly be out in the world itself. Soon, Wesker (Resident Evil) took his Umbrella Corporation and infection to the Burning Ravens as he grew an interest in Arsenal's combat efficiency as he never considered it to be an average human skill to have. Wesker was right, the man known as The Arsenal was a genetically enhanced soldier that would perfect his Mutations within Umbrella. The Burning Ravens fought as strong as they could, but never could defeat the monsters Wesker had created, yet the last of them had held to ground to buy Arsenal time to escape....being average humans they had no chance of survival. The last of the Burning Ravens consisted of Gathamar Black and Arsenal, yet it barely lasted as a Nemesis tracked them down brutally bringing down Arsenal's trusted friend before his own eyes. Arsenal remained as the last survivor cursed to live with the memories of his former comrades.

9 Months before the Chaos Wars: Arsenal explored the Multi-verse world, and as it was he met new people. Arsenal was contacted by BSAA officials to deal with an operation against the Umbrella Corporation along with a few selected individuals. BSAA squads were selected under Arsenal's command along with Samus Aran (Metroid) and the Master Chief (Halo). As cold as Arsenal was with his past, the Master Chief and Samus still considered him an important teammate that would be more effective in their operation. Only in a few months, Arsenal's memories of his former comrades months ago were drifting and became more optimistic on the way, speaking with his teammates, Samus and Chief. Once the operation came to a close, Umbrella fell to shambles trying to defeat the trio formed by the BSAA, Wesker had escaped with only a handful of experiments in his possession. This did not ease Arsenal's pain to his revenge, yet was satisfied to know that Wesker was supposedly 'dealt with'.

7 Months before the Chaos Wars: The team the BSAA formed, Samus, the Master Chief and Arsenal, stayed in contact as each of them had heard word of a 'Brotherhood' being created and felt it could be a potential threat. Arsenal comes across a strangling Nemesis within a forest, yet as he battles the beast it is brought down by another wandering stranger. The stranger appears as a woman named 'Lightning' (Final Fantasy XIII), an ex-soldier familiar with Umbrella's past corruption in the past months. The two would've walked away from each other, but felt it was fate that brought them to the same place. As a wanderer with not much else to do other then having war brought to him, Arsenal convinces Lightning to trust him enough to follow along on her journey. Lightning reveals that a Galactic Empire (Star Wars) has key information on the Brotherhood that her allies could use, yet she is doing this against her commanders as they thought it would provoke war. Arsenal's optimism keeps Lightning in check as her own personal mission became more stressful in the long-run as a constant rivalry continues between the duo and Bounty Hunter, Boba Fett (Star Wars), yet this is what made them the strangest duo with them being more so opposite than what most duos have been seen as in the Multi-verse. Only in a span of a month, Lightning finally retrieves the data from Darth Vader (Star Wars) and makes off with it to her commanders. Though her cold side would've kept Arsenal out of her future, Lightning keeps him around for his help and his optimism as most wanderers never get use to walking alone for days on end. As their journeys continue, Lightning and Arsenal develop a chemistry between each other despite the differences of their personalities, yet simply learning more about each other and feeling more as family.

1 Month before the Chaos Wars: Tension rises in the Multi-verse world as the rising Brotherhood gathers more darker foes, many heroes begin to rally whomever they can to form a force of their own as they feared this 'Brotherhood' could prove troublesome. Samus informs Arsenal to join in what they are going to call 'The Order', but Arsenal declines as he doesn't want to get involved in the war itself. Lightning feels that she too should join in The Order, yet this develops in an argument between Arsenal and Lightning with how they stand on a neutral line rather than joining the war that approaches. Lightning and Arsenal part ways to unknown reaches later on.

98 days in the Chaos Wars: Arsenal still walks on a neutral path, hearing news of The Order and Brotherhood as he passes through town after town. Samus contacts Arsenal again, informing him that her offer still stands to join The Order as 'they could use all the help they could get' but Arsenal declines again as he feels guilty for letting Lightning go off without him and would rather not join the war if he ever had to confront Lightning on the same field. During his wandering, he comes across the hermit, Yoda, that convinces Arsenal to confront his emotions that troubled him, and with his new-found lesson, Arsenal has the slightest thought to join the war, but still needs the motivation to join a side that would work with his soldier beliefs. He'd contact Samus, but feels unsure of what The Order might consist of.

Official Ending to Part 1: Boba Fett tracks down Arsenal alongside Darth Vader, and Wade Wilson (Deadpool of Marvel Comics). Arsenal fails to succeed in the fight. The Brotherhood uses Arsenal's genetic coding to enhance an army of soldiers against The Order. However, they need Arsenal alive to keep the genes of his enhancements.

The voices of regret and guilt within Arsenal's mind: *From left to right, bottom to top*

:iconmasterchiefplz:- "You had mentioned you were a soldier, and yet you decide to stand on the sidelines in this war!? Who are you now exactly?"
:icongathamar:- "We're soldiers, we stand and fight to the end for everything we stand for. Family, friends, loved ones."
:iconsamusaranplz:- "Soon or later, this war will find you. You can count on that."
:iconclairefarronplz:- "Don't try to find me. If we both join this war, but on opposite sides. I will not hesistate in striking you down...."
:iconyoda-plz:- "Difficult, it is to battle ones emotions. In the end. Choices, make you, they will."

lol, it creates that sudden emptiness in  a character that believed he/she had a family of sorts.

You did good my friend. I like this picture, and I like how you wrote the backstory. If you want, I could make you a co-author.
