Trying here a new lightbox... needs some fixing still.
Black souls are malevolent spirits and each of them are physically unique and show a different element. They represent the elements of light, shadow, earth, water and air, the elements which create life. The draken consider their existence a myth, but they are there, they hide and wait for strong beings.
The black souls have a unique ability to hide in and possess beings with traces of their representative element. If they decide to take over the body they're in, they increase the body's elemental power drastically, gain their abilities, also changes them physically into a monstrous being. The stronger the host, the better. Once they find a strong enough host, they take over, transform and begin a cycle of terror and destruction, their goal being to rule the elemental universe with their own element dominating others. When they possess someone, only the host's body will take damage, which is their advancement.
Harm is the black soul of shadow and the general of the Shades. Harm possessed Monarth's body, when he was small, but remained hidden. He knew Monarth's potential and waits for his shadow power to grow stronger, before he will take over. He is the reason why Monarth originally lost his temper at the elemental training qualification course and showed an outrageous amount of elemental strength, resulting in Monarth having the finest training under Master Kronion. The current situation of Monarth being in the comet of Treads is not for his favor, but he waits.
Harm commands the Shades. He is their leader and brains, and they will obey him no matter what. Whoever Harm has possessed also has the ability to summon them. The Shades are like a part of Harm's essence, which is the reason why they look similar, only Harm being much buffer.
Physically Harm is the strongest, fastest and smartest of the black souls. Whereas on his own he may not be too strong, he still gives a challenge with his speed and strength. But when he has possessed someone, he gives a much tougher challenge. His endurance varies though regarding the host, say if he possesses a small creature, he might not last long in a battle, nor be very strong.
Similar to Shades, Harm holds a shield on his wrist, which also works as a claw weapon and a shadow bolt gun. Harm's version is much more advanced than those of the Shades.
Well this guy was another inspiration to fill the elemental universe. It's kind of interesting whenever I manage to polish certain details in the world, in this case the black souls. This was pretty much built around the wreck of Shade, but with nearly total changes to the body parts.
I also tried here my new lightbox. It seems to work nicely, but the sun came a bit too straight forward to the camera in this case. Better note that next time. As the summer is coming, my picture quality will get better again hopefully. No more tablelights.
Monarth's upgrades a really taking a long time, you have no idea what kind of challenge he is =P I've still got tomorrow off school due to May Day, so that might be a chance to continue him again.
Well, I hope you like this and aren't too bothered with the picture quality, I was kind lazy to not take new ones, as it was also hard :3 Until next time, and happy May Day pre-handedly.
