The origins of Suma-Ket and the Unforgiven Dead remain a mystery. They worship the race of extra-dimensional demonic old ones; Ketís race has also been called the Old Oneís. Khet is a necromancer and possibly a demon, the stuff of dark legends come to life.
Circa 5800 B.C Suma-Ket and his tribe came from the North as the saviour of the city of Atlantis. Ket claimed his people to be wise men who could rid Atlantis of the plague of the Faceless Ones; in return, they wished merely to settle among them. He freed the Atlanteans from the terror of the Faceless Ones, banishing the monstrous creatures from the city. In awe of his mighty battle prowess and great mystical powers, the Atlanteans followed Ket, slaying their king Harran, the son of Kamuu, and proclaimed Ket as King of all Atlantis. The seemingly messianic Suma-Ket transformed into a demonic tyrant, bringing to Atlantis a new way, a new religion. His court was an evil place, where unspeakable things were practiced, including infant sacrifice, and creatures stalked the land. Great quantities of Atlantean blood were spilled to fuel his forbidden magicís. Disgusted by his actions he lords of Atlantis banished Ket and his court beyond the Earthly plane to the Grey Waters, a mystical prison that was not quite death, but was certainly not life. As Ket fell, he prophesied that he would return. There he waited for millennia, forgotten, save in myth and legend.
Thousands of years later a Halfling called Socus sacrificed the Atlantean noble Byrrah, whose royal blood opened the doors which imprisoned Suma-Ket.
