Despite being saved from Dr. Robotnik by the Knothole Freedom Fighters, the Nerb race was eventually enslaved under Dr. Eggman. Sadly enough, the vast majority of the race went along with it, eventually undergoing Legionization and becoming a chapter of the Dark Egg Legion. However, despite managing to enslave the Krakens who shared their underground world, the Legion did not go unopposed. A group of Nerb Freedom Fighters-including a Legion defector-stood up to the new regime, having been inspired by other Freedom Fighters from the surface.
Like the other chapters of the Dark Egg Legion, the Nerb chapter received a falsified message announcing Dr. Eggman's death, the destruction of his Death Egg Mark 2, and the capture of his nephew Snively Robotnik. Despite this news, The Foreman continued to drive his Legionnaires in their labors. He was subsequently summoned via teleporation to a meeting of the Grandmasters called by Eggman, who added locating the missing blue Chaos Emerald to the agenda of the various Legion chapters.
