Nightmare, the creator of the X Virus, is an evil wraith made out of gas who wants to control Antarctica with his X-Virus. He is made entirely out of combinations of helium, radon difluoride, pie fumes, and some DNA he collected from some of the most evil penguins ever.
It is forgotten that over a thousand years ago, Nightmare was once a High Penguin. He created the X-Virus, which he used to create an army of evil X-Creatures. He was defeated in a final showdown by Marcus Kwiksilver and James Kwiksilver. Nightmare and his army dissolved into dust and lay in wait. Later he was completely destroyed by Star Kirby12, Richperson and Rico in the Final X Showdown.
Nightmare's history is still mostly shrouded in mystery. The Snell-Libros are still trying to work it out. This is what they discovered so far.
Early Life and Creation of the X-Virus
Nightmare was one of the original High Penguins to come to Antarctica. He was called Athondiel. He hated Finwe and thought that the Light Keeper was a foolish old penguin. One talent Athondiel had was chemistry. It was thought by Finwe that he had unraveled the mysteries of life itself. One day in his laboratory, Athondiel created a parasite that would create a super-powered copy of the host. He brought it to Finwe.
Finwe disproved of Athondiel's evil intentions, and threw his experiment in the trash. It got Athondiel angry. He wanted to be the greatest scientist the world had ever known. Athondiel locked himself in his laboratory and accepted no visitors. Finwe got worried. Athondiel let his evil consume him, and due to his constant experiments, his colour changed from a healthy orange to pitch black. He renamed himself Nightmare, and emerged after five years with the X-Virus formula.
Nightmare poisoned his town's water supply with the X-Virus, and soon he had over five hundred X-Soldiers. They marched to confront Finwe. Finwe, thinking one step ahead, had already built an escape tunnel and fled to Arda with the rest of the High Penguin Council. Nightmare arrived at an empty palace.
Finwe explained the situation with Nightmare to Marcus Kwiksilver, the leader of the High Penguin Military. Kwiksilver decided to evacuate all the High Penguins in Antarctica to Ard Mhaca to stop Nightmare getting any more soldiers. The High Penguins barely escaped Nightmare and his X-Soldiers. Finally, the X-Creatures had surrounded Ard Mhaca City. They demanded the city, but Finwe would not yield to their demands. Marcus Kwiksilver called a truce and it was decided that he and Nightmare would fight to the death at dawn.
Showdown at Ard Mhaca

Dawn came, and the High Penguin forces met Nightmare's Army at a flat plain south of Ard Mhaca. Nightmare and Marcus drew their swords, a pitch black blade for Nightmare, a shining sword for Marcus, and the battle was on. They fought long and hard and neither seemed tired. At about midday, Nightmare tricked Marcus and stabbed his flipper. Marcus fell to the ground, and he was lucky because the referee called time out.
Nightmare grinned as he surveyed Marcus' flipper. His poisoned blade had turned it black and it was numb. He was going to win. Nightmare laughed from the sidelines as he was treated by a medic. Suddenly, there was a green flash of light and a penguin appeared where Nightmare and Marcus were fighting. He took up Marcus' sword and fought Nightmare.
The young penguin's speed and agility surprised Nightmare, and Nightmare was defeated. Nightmare went to a dark depression after this and wasn't seen for a long time.
Darktan, while searching for a perfect minion, accidentally allowed one of Manny Peng's balloons to float over him as he was working. Darktan didn't notice. He was busy combining pie fumes with radon and fluorine.
At that moment, Witchypenguin flew through. Her broomstick popped the balloon. At that moment, the pie fumes and carbon dioxide met the helium. A large bang was heard, and the Darktonian Realm was covered in darkness.
Darktan's minions stumbled around blindly, as Darktan himself pulled out an AC 1000 from under his workbench. He calmly switched it on, blowing the cloud of darkness out the door and into the sky.
The darkness floated high into the sky, and inside it the gases were brewing. Finally, a creature formed, made entirely of gas. The creature's was looking for someone it could survive. It met Nightmare, and fused itself with him, turning Nightmare into a gas-creature.
Completion of X-Virus
One day he met Lizlord. He asked Lizlord what his purpose was.
"Well, what do you like doing best?" said Lizlord.
"I like to spread chaos and have an urge to take over Antarctica," said Nightmare.
"Then that is your purpose, and I will help you fulfill it."
Lizlord helped Nightmare perfect the X-Virus, and they started spreading it.

He is trying to get enough Anti-Body's to take over the whole continent.
