Races of the Dark
Lore Story: The Races of control and evil
By Rick Merriman
After The Mothers and The Fathers all gave a part of themselves to create the race of man to give Siberlee her child, the Gods all began to feel a longing to have a child of their own. The One and The Other decided to gift each of these gods a race of their own so they too could have children.
Inherently evil it does not mean all are always evil. There are sprinklings of good in all the races, even the Races of Dark. Some individuals may be quite good in their doings, even if the seed of being evil is in them from birth.
In certain cases, entire groups may show none of the virtues of The Fathers and appear Good in most of their affairs. On this subject Kalos The Fire Dragon is known to have said, “Good or Evil is but an unnourished seed implanted at birth. Upbringing and environment are the fertilizer that will determine how each of us is to grow.”
Examples of these are Quont’s race of Dark Faeries or Roadius’ Race of Gnomes. Many, but not all the individuals in these races have a strong sense of what is right or good. Some even, on occasion, will do what they feel is right when properly motivated. For Dark Faeries this is often when they fall in love.
