ABOUT NIGHTSTALKER

Before the Genesis War, Manoa was an earthly paradise. The gods and their worshippers built huge temples and all lived in harmony. The Genesis War changed all that. Akene fell into a deep sleep and the gods who followed her vanished forever.

Manoa became a desert and home to the Witchblades. The magic left behind by the gods drew them in and they began to develop their powers from it. The Dabel Priests called them witches and, not long after, began to hunt them down. Those who escaped the Dabel Priests gathered in Manoa, and soon the Witchblades were a force to be reckoned with. One group of Witchblades was particularly affected by the power of darkness granted to Arad, the black dragon.

Dark powers so close to purity captivated the young girls, and their anger at the Dabel Priests began to grow. In the end, they focused their fury on summoning the fallen god Magnetic Gravito, exiled into the Netherworld by Akene, and redirected his desire for revenge towards the Dabel Priests, laying the groundwork for a new reign of terror. One Dabel priest began to call these Witchblades, who could summon servants from the Nether, Nightstalkers.
