Darkness Hunters or Darkness Slashers are a secret group of priest hunters that track down and prosecute people within the Makai realm.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
Darkness hunters (or slashers) are a group of Makai Priests that has been trained to handle corrupted individuals within their own order. Because priests and knights are often exposed to darkness, certain individuals eventually lose to the very dark forces they fight against. Horrors have been known to possess knights and/or priests. Once the person is possessed, they are beyond saving and pose a serious threat to the order as the agent of darkness has all the person's knowledge and experience to cause serious havoc. Other people suffer from personality corruption through extended exposure to negative energies, causing them to personify the worst side of their natures; some may have tampered with the dark arts and unknowingly become corrupted themselves. It is such people that has proven a major problem in the past and the hunters are trained to defeat such individuals to neutralize their darkness.
Neither respected nor trusted by their own kind, the hunters act as the Order's internal affairs unit and has the power to take down any corrupted individuals they see fit. Because their job is solely dedicated to taking down corrupted individuals and not Horrors, they are treated as pariahs. Because it's their job to be impartial, the hunters makes minimize bonds with people and carries a high degree of criticism amongst their own. Working mainly as solo operatives, they have no partners and its considered very rare to work in teams. The full description of their group is not fully defined as there's only limited information.
