One day coming back from school, he heard his mother (Helena) crying in the bathroom. Worried about the situation, the little boy asked what was happening and his mother explained that her best friend Kelly had been mocking her. This created hatred in his heart and once alone in his room, he unleashed all his fury on a doll, wishing it to be his mother's friend. On the other side, Kelly received all the negativity sent by Jeremiah and ended up fainting and being taken to hospital. After hearing his mother speaking about the incident that had happened to Kelly, Jeremiah regretted what he had done and immediately threw the doll away. Unaware to Jeremiah, this created a big a problem for himself as the demon started up a plan to use him to destroy people's lives. The furious demon starts to show up to Jeremiah in the form of a shadow and it left him in a state of shock and confusion. This is where his journey on the pursuit for clarification on what he was experiencing starts, to discover the reason for that encounter, and how to fight it.
