Unseen ruler of the Fifth Level
The Unseen Ruler of Hell's Fifth Level fabricated scriptures for his subjects to follow a trillion years ago. Over the eons, the damned souls who resided in the fifth level had come to religiously follow the scriptures without question and pray for the day when the foretold messiah would arrive to release them from Hell.

Of course, the messiah would never come, he too was a fabrication. The Unseen Ruler used his false religion to control and torment his subjects.

Malebolgia, ruler of his own level of Hell, disrupted this plan in order to spite the Unseen Ruler. He did this by allowing Spawn to appear briefly in the fifth level - long enough to instill doubt amongst its denizens and lay the seed of destruction for their false religion.

The demon Ceril gathered the body (except the heart) and Uphir reassembled it. Together they presented it to Mammon, who was displeased at the missing heart, but soon forgot when Spawn regained consciousness without it.

Later, when Sam and Twitch arrived in Hell, Uphir kindly showed them to a safe spot where they could sit aside as Spawn fought with Thamuz's inquisitors.

Urizen
Urizen is the dark god of Shadows. According to the demons Ab and Zab, Urizen is so old most have forgotten about him. The poet William Blake wrote of Urizen, but he got a lot of it wrong - and how he knew about him in the first place, no one knows.

Urizen was long ago imprisoned in the void by the combined forces of Heaven and Hell. The dark god is an enemy to both factions because he negates human souls - the prizes of both Heaven and Hell. Thus they worked together to imprison him, the best option since he cannot be destroyed.

On Earth, a group of humans called simply "The Group" tried unsuccessfully to summon Urizen. Their plan was foiled by Spawn. A short time later, the demons Ab and Zab were hired by Malebolgia to unleash Urizen upon the world. The demon had hoped that releasing Urizen would initiate the Apocalypse and the forces of Heaven would be overtaken. As his last act of Earthly manipulation, Malebolgia sent Ab and Zab to sacrifice 13 people near Malice, Pennsylvania - as planned, Urizen came.

Immediately, Spawn began battling the beast but was quickly defeated. While unconscious, Spawn was summoned by Greenworld once again. They, like Heaven, could not allow Urizen to roam free, and they gave Spawn new powers to help defeat the beast.

Meanwhile, the forces of Heaven were gathering to attack Urizen, unaware that they were falling into Malebolgia's trap. Luckily, level-headed orders from the top combined with Angela's diplomacy stopped Heaven from attacking.

Back in Pennsylvania, Spawn fought Urizen alone until Angela arrived to help. Using his new powers from Greenworld, Spawn and Angela were able to imprison Urizen within the Earth itself. As the dark god sank into the soil, his hand reached out and became like stone - a formation the townsfolk took to calling the Devil's Right Hand.

Later, after Malice had rebuilt, three brothers were playing on the Devil's Right Hand and a small shard of the rock went into one of the boys' foot. He somehow absorbed or released a portion of Urizen's power and shared it with his brothers.

Suddenly, they found they could do amazing things with their minds, but they quickly lost control of the evil inside them. Spawn returned and forced Urizen out of them and back into the Earth once again, but the boys were never the same.
