The Eyebots were the creations of scientist Hieronymus Hellgore. When he was persecuted by the Blood Monks for practicing science, he tried to escape from the dimension together with his wife Abbadona, their son, and the Eyebots.
In the end, both Hieronymus and Abbadona sacrificed themselves to perserve the life of their son. As they were escaping, Abbadona ordered the Eyebots to consider their child as their main priority. When the boy grew older, he became the Imperator, and the Eyebots joined his crusade against magic users all over the universe and throughout dimensions in the form of the Empirikul.
