Keepers of the Balance
DarkeStorm is a bit of an anomaly, even tho he’s one of the most recent ‘heroes’ in Post-Rift history.
The tales of DarkeStorm’s and PhoenixBlade’s adventures and exploits take all sorts of shapes and sizes, with the only commonality of PhoenixBlade and DarkeStorm always being together. In most cases, DarkeStorm appears as a great, coal black Friesian. However, sometimes he’s pictured in a human form (described in the Horse Warriors page) wearing light, all black armor and carrying twin blades. Other times, he’s depicted wearing a black cloak, with no distinguishable features other than some locks of white hair falling out of the blackness of his hood.
After saving the world from some great evil or other, both PhoenixBlade and DarkeStorm ‘ascended’ and became demigods. Now, they act sometimes as liaisons between the ‘Upper & Lower Realms’ (Heaven and Hell) and the Mid Realm (Earth). There are plenty of shines and small temples to them, but the main followers they get are The Guardians. Most of their teachings are about keeping the Balance.
