According to the teachings of the Coil, the Serpent arrived at the beginning of the universe, beginning life. The Serpent encircled Earth, giving the planet knowledge and creating life on the planet, giving its creations free will. The Serpent appeared to her followers under many aspects, including Ani, Agalyod, Shesa, Amduat, Ophion, Jormungand, Nuwa, and Quetzalcoatl. In order to support humanity, the Serpent created Golobulus to serve as her spirit made flesh to guide humanity. However, humanity began to reject the Serpent and her worship. Throughout human history, the Serpent sent champions to conquer the Earth in an effort to unite humanity again. These champions included Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Grigori Rasputin. However, these champions failed and the Serpent decided to send in her final champion as an amalgamation of all of her previous champions: Serpentor. She gave birth to Serpentor in the form of Stephen Menisian in 1972 CE.
