Dark Arise[edit]

Dark Arise is what a individual becomes if they underwent the ritual to become a Arise and were of the evil alignment. They have become more sinister look for their race than what they were when alive. Their skin became a dark grey colour, their hair black and they have red eyes. They are twisted and are not really meant to be. Not because they are evil but because the ritual is only meant for good people and because the person undergoing was one of the evil alignment they gain some unexpected abilities. For more information on the Arise and becoming one go to the arise page.
