The Curse of Osiris Edit
It is 1981 and Rod Temperton is writing the lyrics for what will become Michael Jacksons Thriller. He is seeking inspiration and decides to travel to Eqypt. When he is in Eqypt he sees multiple hierglyphics on the pyramid walls and ask his guide to translate them. He is warned that theese words are a curse and that he should never repeat them but decides to use the words anyway. Ever since Thriller is first performed in Vegas in 1982 (and the curse unleashed) Rod has been tormennted by a dark presence he cant explain. He spirals deaper into psychosis and friends and family become increasingly concerned over him. The Anubis ultimately kills him in 2016 after he suffered from a "brief battle with cancer" or so everyone else thought.
