The Darken

     In a wondrous yet violent world, there roam beings both fair and foul. Even now, in its dying days, magic is an ever-present thing, unpredictable and ever-changing. It churns and tangles into chaotic storms, from which many dark tales are born.

     One such tale speaks of a child, born with an aura as black as night. A dark, malevolent force, it devours all around it, unraveling the very fabric of the world. Most such children die within a week. Some survive for two. Only the unluckiest live to adulthood, becoming little more than physical shells for the dark power that sustains them.
     But a very few become something more. They adapt, taming the darkness within and learning to harness its power. In doing so, they become the stuff of legend. They become Darken.
