From the Tales of the Cat's-Eye Curse
They call me Bast. I was once a human, and a fearless explorer. I was known across the land for my adventuring prowess and keen eye for shiny things. My way was trinkets and treasure, and I so desired their luster and gleam, that I sought to pilfer every land, every civilization, ancient and new, for their valuables.
One day, however, I went too far. I took an artifact known as the "Cat's Eye" from a temple protected by the ancient race of Myu. I stirred their spirits and aroused their wrath.
Now, I prowl on paws, padded and furred, as I seek my prey. My eyes see what I have not seen before; they have enhanced my insight into my foes. My ears twitch at the prospect of bloodlust, and my heart beats with nine lives.
For the Myu not only gave me a new form, but a piece of their ancient power. And a burning desire for more.
That is what I want, and all I care for now. I will conquer humankind and Pokekind alike to achieve that end. The Legendaries have gathered together and have risen up against me, but it is no matter. I will destroy all those who oppose me.
That includes you, Victini!
For I will not be royalty, or even Legend!
I will be a deity.
