While Douji Group Industries and the NSWF were working together on the Witchblade, one of the NSWF's top scientists, Reina Soho, was sent to aid them in their research. However, Reina stole the Witchblade from Douji Group Industries in an attempt to gain its' power. Once Reina's betrayal was discovered, both Douji Group Industries and the NSWF sent agents in to retrieve the Witchblade.

The Witchblade awoke during this time and the resulting power surge resulted in the Great Quake, a massive earthquake that devastated Tokyo and killed millions of people. After the Great Quake, Douji focused its' attention on retrieving X-Cons, which were malfunctioning machines that escaped during the Great Quake.
