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.

The Dalsmen are the most common enemy type the player will face in The Darken: Echoes of the End, as they hunt Ryn down for her actions in the game's prologue.
