|“||There are two ways a creature of pure darkness can survive in this... polluted world. They can bind themselves to an object... a weapon... or, through pure will and patience, gather in the shadows and slowly accrete. The second provides more... raw power. More freedom to move. More time to think. And plan. Unfortunately, it almost comes with a price. A vulnerability to the other elements, Light especially. A vulnerability that didn't allow me to gather the orbs myself. You two took care of that for me though, with very little prompting... And now... Now I have a weapon worthy to bind myself to!||„|
The Mysterious Stranger is a name given to the manifestations of a mysterious primordial being from the plane of darkness that existed before the universe. Its goal is to revert universes back into darkness and rid them from the "pollution" of light.
