Other Terms


User can transform into a state of being, mostly due to the influence of dark or negative forces, in which their darkest intentions, emotion, and powers are fully fledged. In this form, the user's powers are greatly enhanced and are able to manipulate powerful dark forces. However, in this form, the user is highly aggressive and very quick to anger, making them a threat to anyone around them as well as themselves.




  • One's aggression may be their downfall.
  • May be overpowered by light based abilities.
  • May effect users sanity/lucidity in various decrees.
  • May cause corruption of mind/body/soul.
  • Sometimes the dark form may possess a consciousness of its own, allowing it to manifest itself into a physical form.
