Altima - The Alternate Authority

Hello all! Welcome to my fifth PMC skin contest entry with the theme "Boss Battle". This is an original deity set in the parallel universe of Steve's. This is my first two-sided skin as well, for a boss fight should be more challenging. In Minecraft, this battle wouldn't be possible without mods or thorough command block work, as it involves a changing arena, time limit and health regeneration. Included details of the boss' weaknesses and battle strategies in the spoilers below, with a story and two (for a first) jukebox music sets! The story is a direct sequel to the Genesis Turtle Project and in slight relation to the Babil Project (the seeds).

    In terms of shading, it's slightly rusty and quite sudden in colour scheme; I may need to tweak that soon. I am planning to add a version of this skin with the red half in front rather than the blue. 
EDIT 1: Added the Description and Battle Strategy!

Jukebox Music
The Promise - Start from the story!

Preliator - Straight into action!

Background Story
It was Steve's first attempt to depart from the Genesis Turtle. He built a Nether Portal to escape the tempting paradise, hoping to reach back to his ship. If he had asked the turtle itself to take him across space, he couldn't know the location of his home planet, for it was all stored in the vehicle. He gathered several food items, seeds (ones probably handed to him by Matre himself) and resources for his arsenal. Behind him, something moved. In the darkness of the mesa cavern, he could hear glass shifting, heavy sweeping on the floor, and a small moan. He turned around to see the glass dome lifting up, exposing four mucous limbs and a fragile, textured head. Above the glass, inscriptions materialised in the air. They spoke to Steve as he observed them floating like fireflies. "I entrust my son to you," said the mother, "Teach him the ways of life that he may embrace inside his young shell. Teach him to love and to travel as quick as time."

He immediately realised this chamber was a rough, well lit womb for the baby that crawled towards him. It moaned out in acceptance, as if imprinting Steve as its own guardian. Calmly, it stroked his side with its smooth greasy head. Steve rested his hand on it and guided it towards the portal. A message of farewell and gratitude appeared once more to his vision before fading into the light of the rift.

As they walked through, a sudden feeling of distortion in space caused the two to shiver. Beyond the portal lied a warm, empty space in contrast to the hellish land of that on a planet. The distances were shrouded in maroon-red fog where hardly any stars shown light. Steve and the turtle were suddenly pulled towards the abyss below, and they tumbled forward. Falling through the space, they could feel time passing quickly as Steve grasped the front of the son's shell. The mist that they travelled through appeared in lines. They couldn't register a fixed glance at the spaces they crossed.

The lines drifted apart, and the darkness of the abyss was very clear - pitch black. It seemed they had departed from the Nether this way, but didn't know what lied ahead. Was this a new dimension? Could there be anything inside that abyss? Suddenly, Steve sensed malicious intent beyond, growing stronger as the void began engulfing them. Is there something waiting for us?

For a split-second, Steve saw a vision of himself and the turtle hurtling towards them, but to no collision. Had they passed through like ghosts, or images of a mirror? He looked back at them vanishing back into the nether above. However, as he faced forward, the Nether space came to greet them again.

This region was the same as before, but reversed in position. However, the only other difference Steve had felt was still this sense of anger, hatred and weakness. The turtle moaned out in reaction. It shivered and writhed in fear of this strange force. Time travelled very slowly now, and the two reached the entrance of the same portal they had just left from. Confused and afraid, Steve chose to go forward, expecting another version of his universe but mirrored.

Beyond the portal, the universe looked like the wastelends of the Nether itself.

From the ruins of the cavern, he observed the shattered glass dome of the Genesis Turtle, the sky coloured like a mix of blood red and ocean blue, the trees and plants withered away and skeleton remains everywhere. Above the dome where placements of wandering asteroids and remnants of planets and stars that glide morosely. Everywhere he heard cries of pain and grief non-stop, even echoing from the ground that he stood on. An alternate universe that mirrored his would not have been this ravaged. Ahead of the crying stars, he caught a glimpse of a being that appeared to sit on a throne of galaxies.

The Authority was ambivalent, two-headed and balanced between peace and power. Beside its body laid four large totems that glowed in reverence. They had special, iridescent colours for the mask each wore. They were paired in two, connected to half of the main body. Again, a vision of the inscription appeared, moaning out "Destroy Altima..."

Steve unsheathed his diamond sword and comforted the young turtle. "Destroy Altima..." the message reiterated until Steve requested how, the letters immediately switched and grew into words, "The Author of Peace controls time and life," it paused to reform the letters, "The Author of Power controls matter and death." The deity above turned a swift glance to Steve, and the air suddenly transitioned into adrenaline. "Restore this universe, and you will restore the life mirrored on your own."

He began the greatest battle of his life alongside his own Genesis turtle against Altima, the Authoriy who transformed the universe against him.
