~ INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM UNKNOWN SOURCE ~
Long have I served as a watchful eye over all Equestria. Silently observing all that occurs from my place beyond the boundaries of space and time.
I seek to maintain the balance of good and evil. For one without the other only brings destruction.
And such destruction has occurred in the past.
There was a time when I would step in. To create the balance that had fallen into shambles. Those were dark times indeed.
Ponies would refer to me as the harbinger of the end. When the truth was quite the opposite.
Their world was on the brink of destruction by their own hooves. I merely existed to calm the storm.
Where there was chaos, I brought order. And yet when order overwhelmed, I brought chaos. A tip of the scale to one side or the other. All for the sake of balance.
And yet they feared me.
It was through this fear that I swore an oath. I never again would use my powers to directly intervene unless it would otherwise utterly shatter the world I guarded.
I would not be the bringer of ends.
And yet for a while, I was not needed. My watchful gaze never faltered, though. For thousands of years, the balance was maintained. Chaos and order in perfect harmony.
But... it was not meant to last.
A hole tore in the fabric of space. And madness seeped through.
A twisted darkness oozed into the balanced equation. And where there once had been one Equestria, there now existed many. A tangle of vile creations seeped forth and split the very time stream.
A balanced world... my balanced world... now existed as chaotic, amorphous blob. And to this day, remains in such a state.
Bound by my own words, I shall not alter the flow of time in this universe. Instead, I bear messages to the few who remain uncorrupted by whatever dark taint has polluted the Ponyverse. Hoping that these few ponies will be able to reclaim balance from the utter chaos.
And while they struggle with their plight, I struggle with mine.
What had gone so horribly wrong...?
