Chapter 7 VANITY, SHADOW, AND FLAME
When the last of the Illuminaires were brutally vanquished by the Sanquine Venae, Fate was left with no choice but to act. She searched intently the deepest caverns of humanity’s soul and found the most powerful emotion of them all…Fear! With it she discerningly crafted a master Illuminaire, forged in the fires of the most ancient sun. She molded her into a fearsome beauty formed with ethereal flesh, stone, metal, and the darkest energies of space, an avenger with no equal. A fatal tool designed to achieve penance for her foolishly careless and arrogant experiment and she aptly named her deadly progeny as such.
Penance was sent to the Fleshworld to eviscerate the Venae and wipe their blemish from history. She did so with great pleasure. Silver, stakes, holy water, garlic, all fabrications of frightened men in a delusional attempt to deny the imperishable nature of the Venae. They could not be killed by any mortal craft or ceremonial blessing. The only truth told was their preference for the night and they chose to be nocturnal out of their sheer detestation of all things light. A deep, unwavering hatred for the very thing they were created from. Still, these terrifyingly mighty nocturnal beasts were unprepared for the oncoming onslaught.
With a blade forged in the most intimate fears of life itself, she sliced, shredded, disemboweled, dismembered, and beheaded every last one. Remorseless, in frenzied elation, she massacred their entire race, soaring down from the very shadows they had used for protection and camouflage.
