Everyone’s afraid of the dark at one point in their life… or is it the things that are in the dark that we fear? The shifting in the shadows, the movement out the corner of our eyes. Most parents tell their kids there is nothing to fear in the dark… their wrong ya know. Its odd, no one ever asks what does the darkness and its denizens fear. What keeps them up at night scared, sweating, at least the ones that can sweat that is. I’ve never had the luxury of fear, since the day I was born I’ve been taught that fear equals death. Imagine if you will, being born into royalty, but having that be the biggest curse and burden you can ever possible have. I know what the night fears… and its me. My name is Stonia Ebon, son of Gravinic Ebon, King of Grand Kandalu Pillar in the heart of Africa. I was born a prince, and destined to be King. I’m also 4000 year old hunter… and this is my beginning.
I was once a warrior, or as I like to say a slave. Born and destined to fight back the evils of the world, a heavy burden for anyone to bear, especially a child. Imbued with the magical symbols of Kandalu as an infant, I could see, hunt and fight the demons, the shifters and undead on their supernatural level. Such is the burden of my family to protect our kingdom and the world. You have no choice, you have no freedom, your only purpose as a member of the ruling family is to protect the kingdom at all cost. Your bred and trained as a warrior not just to face the supernatural, but to fend off the other tribes who want to rule. The few that have rejected their calling as protectors and have attempted to run were hunted down and destroyed just as we would destroy the dark ones. In my kingdom, WE are the hunters and the night fears us! But that was then, I was revived in this new time, full of wonders and mysteries I could never imagined. This world is far different than what I am use to or remember it. Awakening in this world has been problematic, to say the least, but not insurmountable. I have and always have had one mindset and mission from birth, protect the innocent, terrorize the night. New world… same mission. (more…)
