5 years after Pitch Black, the wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
After escaping the dark planet, Richard B. Riddick has been in hiding for 5 years, evading most of the bounty hunters and mercenaries that are set to capture him because of his high price. His latest hideout is a Planet U.V., a world lit only by ultraviolet light.
He evades the bounty hunter Toombs, killing Toombs’ crew and stealing his ship. He then heads to New Mecca in the Helion System, after Toombs reveals his bounty originated there. Once there, Riddick is reunited with Imam, the man he rescued. Imam believes Riddick is a Furyan, a race of warriors long thought extinct, and wants to know about his homeworld and if anyone other than himself is left. Imam believes Helion Prime is the next planet to be conquered by a mysterious force crusading across the stars.
Aereon(lady in white religious robes), an Air Elemental, identifies the army as the Necromongers(shown above), religious fanatics who seek to convert everyone and kill those who refuse. The Necromongers invade that very night, overwhelming the defense forces and take control of the capital. In the ensuing battle, Imam is killed and Riddick escapes.
The next day, the Necromonger high priest called ‘The Purifier’ coerces the populace into converting, except for Riddick, who defiantly kills the man who killed Imam.
Intrigued, the Lord Marshal orders Riddick be scanned by the Quasi-Dead, half-dead telepaths who determine that he is one of the few remaining Furyans. Lord Marshal orders Riddick’s death, but Riddick escapes the Necromonger ship and allows himself to be recaptured by Toombs. Riddick is taken to Crematoria, a harsh subterranean prison moon, where Jack, a girl Riddick rescued, was reported to have been sent. He meets up with her as the Prison Warden warns Toombs of the “Ghost Army” killing entire worlds and leaving behind dead Systems. They have various names but all seem to be aware of the threat they pose.
