Weak Vessel. You were to herald my master's return, but you proved too... Incorruptible. But your conflict gave me strength, and your resistance has given me... freedom. Woe to those who stand against me, for I am his herald and the sign of things to come. I. Am. Omen!
~ Omen


Omen is the demon herald of Gargos in the reboot of "Killer Instinct". He was sent by Gargos to possess the Warrior monk Jago, and corrupt him into being a pawn. He almost succeeded since Jago actually became Shadow Jago, an Evil version of himself. Unfortunately, Jago fought back and soon he was free of Omen. This in turn caused all the shadow energy collected by Shadow Jago to suddenly manifest in the mortal plane, and creating Omen's body. No he corruption, fear, and rage given form. The right hand of his master's will. He is the sign of darkness to come. He is shadow energy incarnate. He is Omen!
