8 Colors of Darkness by The-Knick 8 Colors of Darkness by The-Knick
Indigo- Vanity/Pride:
Those who elevate themselves over everyone else. Transformed into graceful fliers of death.

Red - Wrath/Destruction:
Those who persued in death and destruction. Transformed into giant beasts whom mindlessly destroy.

Pink - Lust:
Those who seeped their hobbies in sex and sexual desires. Transformed into banshees whom lure, seduce, and rape. Can also change genders to match the appetite of their prey.

Orange - Gluttony/Consumtion
Those who drowned themselves in everlonging hunger and consumtion; stealing from the lower to support their own appetites. Transformed into demons whom feast on all.

Green - Envy/Resent
Those who gave in to the darkness with the hatred for those of greater fortune. Transformed into insects who leach off of the alive and control them, or transmit their visions to other darkau like cameras.

Yellow - Greed/Avarice
Those who desired riches, fame, and fortune, and attemted at grabbing all and anything they could handle. Transformed into zombies with fingers that grapple and cling.

Blue - Sloth/Neglect
Those who lack generosity or compassion, or even the care for others. Transformed into slow-moving specters covered in armor and emit toxic gasses.

White - Other
Common thieves and lawbreakers; or any victims falling out of the other categories. Take shapes of most common Darkau, such as the Terrorists and Minions.


Darkau are demons who were once human, but were consumed by other Darkau. Darkau eat light, and the light energy that's stored in humans. When the light energy leaves a human, the dark energy takes over, and shapes into a Darkau.

The Light and Dark energy in an individual is determined by their heart - by their actions and emotions.

One who is of Virtue is turned into a White Darkau.

One who is transformed cannot be reverted unless their Light Energy is returned to them. Darkau will keep the energy in their stomaches, and will return eventually to bring the energy to their leader.

Nice concept, Lust would be my favourite one here.
Mind if I have a go at this in a similar style?

Sure, I guess. :)

I know what you're going with here, but what about Blasphemy and Spite?

Spite seems to fit the White quite nicely.

"Since you are not able to acquire a respectable color, you shall be given the weakest body and status - White. Enjoy!"

And Blasphemy could be the Big Bad's posse, or just the Big Bad himself. Seems Black would be appropriate for those who have managed to spit in the face of the Gods and walk away, no?

Any who, cool beans. Looking forward to all of these things you're making.

Spite mixes in with Wrath; the hatred for another, and the desire to inflict pain or suffering (physical or mental) on them.

Blasphemy could be fitted in... maybe for those who desire the power of the darkau, and to defy the Gods.

Teehee! You're over-analyzing! :icondissidiakefkaplz:

While spite can be done for the purpose of revenge, in it's essence it is not revenge itself.

Rather, spite is simply doing something against another's wishes for the sole purpose of pissing them off and gaining pleasure from their dismay.

At least, that's what I've produced after years of mental marinading...

Yeah, same thing, really.
