The Dark One
Once held dominion over the entire realm. Was overthrown by the Alliance, ending the War of the Dawn
The Dark One (Also referenced to as The False One, Looming Shadow and other names throughout history) is known across the land as the tyrant that once controlled all of Volthanya in an iron grip. Not much is known about who or what he was and how he came to power. It is widely believed that he was always in power. He was overthrown by the Primordial Triad at the end of the War of the Dawn.
The cause of his death is also cause of much controversy. It is widely agreed that the Primordial Triad were the catalyst of his demise, however it is not known which champion dealt the killing blow, nor the place where the fight ended. Each of the three major races claim that their respective champions were the one.
