Some time ago, a creature known as the Night Lord rose up to bathe the world in eternal darkness and rule forever in the shadow of the new existence. Armies rose to challenge him, but all were defeated in their turn until the great Saint defeated him in combat. However, his death did not come without consquence, and his blood rained down upon the world, and corrupted all it touched. Thus were born the beasts who devour the dreams and night time of the people, especially upon Rusewall Island where the final battle took place. Into this, comes Arnice, a woman who has not been corrupted by the blue blood, but instead has fused it equally within her, making her blood purple thus taking the blue blood's power, but keeping her human free will. Here she has been charged with defeating the beasts, and ensuring that the new Saint is protected until it is time for her to be sacrificed to seal what remains of the Night Lord once again. Problem is, the new Saint is an old and very good friend of hers, Lilysse, and Arnice will be damned if that one will be sacrified. Other options will need to be considered.
