Capabilities

Assailants are those who wish to rule whatever they choose as well as seek total domination over domains. On occasions, they also plan to steal objects of great power. Due to their dark nature and evil intentions, assailants have an undying thirst for destruction and despair upon the innocent, they'll kill anyone who stands in their way of conquest. Unlike guardians, they're not chosen, but more or less, they're often corrupted by power and seek to gain more, even if it means destroying everything they know. Much like guardians, they are capable of possessing supernatural abilities.

Universal Differences

  • Most agents are only servants to a greater evil.
  • Some become evil due to a curse or corruption.
  • Some may already be an entity of pure evil.
  • Some may have been guardians who fell from grace, been manipulated by evil influences, or gone insane by their own power.
