In days long past, a powerful and ancient civilization
ruled the land of the rising sun. Known as the
Nilai Kanai, these people were technologically
and mystically advanced, holding power over science
and magic unknown before or after. Yet, there's
was not a perfect society. Like the humans of
today, they polluted their waters and corrupted
their skies with toxins. Rather than change their
ways, they chose to play at being gods, and created
a being to dispose of their wastes. Known as Dagahra,
this creature would consume the pollution that
the Nilai Kanai produced, thus cleansing the waters.
Dagahra did consume pollution, as it was constructed
to, but produced a toxic side effect: bariums.
Releasing thousands of the acidic sea stars from
its body, Dagahra destroyed its creators, then
fell into a deep slumber below the waves.
Several thousand years later, Dagahra was reawakened
by a new insurgence of pollution into its domain.
Awakening to fulfill its purpose once again, the
toxic monster emerged from its lair, consuming
man's waste and releasing its deadly spawn. Soon,
the oceans ran red with its lethal sea-stars.
Then, it emerged itself, spreading destruction
to the land dwellers that feed it so much waste.
Yet, it was met by a powerful entity, known as
Mothra Leo. Battling Leo with all of his might,
Dagahra fought the noble Mothra to a standstill.
Yet, when he dragged Leo below the water, the
advantage was his, and he encrusted the noble
warrior with his toxic spawn. As Dagahra forced
his foe from the water and onto a recently revived
Nilai Kanai pyramid, he closed in to finish the
job. Yet, his ancient creators sought to foil
him from beyond the grave, as ancient traps activated
and bombarded the toxic one with bolts of rainbow
lightning. Forced to retreat, Dagahra circled
the pyramid, seeking a way to continue his assault
on the heroic Leo.
But, just as the tide seemed in his favor, the
water spirit Ghogo released his power into the
damaged Mothra, reviving him and allowing Leo
to rise from defeat and battle against Dagahra.
This time, Dagahra was at a disadvantage, as Ghogo's
magic gave Leo a powerful boost in energy, as
well as the ability to follow Dagahra under the
waves to continue his assault. Try as he might,
Dagahra couldn't fight of the empowered Leo. Then,
his foe did something startling. Splitting apart,
Leo dove into Dagahra's stomach. The toxic one
was wracked with agony as his enemy literally
carved his internal organs apart. As his last
dieing scream echoed through the depths, Leo dragged
his venomous carcass from the water. Purified
by the Nilai Kanai temple and Leo's combined power,
Dagahra returned to seawater, and was dispersed
by Leo. Thus ended the reign of the toxic beast
Dagahra, the product of humanity's foolish pride.
