Malbian - Male by Virapets Malbian - Male by Virapets
The pointy-eared race, originating in Manu were the seperating group in Great Divide of the Albians, when a conflict between the Albians caused the seperation into two gropus upon choosing weither the powerful and corrupting Shadestones should be used in order to gain more power in their race or be locked away and guarded so that no evil should possess them.

After the Malbians seperated from the Albian culture, they fled to the dark caves and hills of each island, letting the power of the shadestone alter their appearances and corrupt their beliefs until they began a twisted brooding race only seeking power. So they then began building a power hungry culture in the caves and living their for several hundred years. However, they eventually awakened the Ra'atikan, who where angered that the caves in which they resided where taken.

Many battles where fought for ownership of the caves, but eventually the Malbian were driven out and dispersed across Therica.

Edit: Oh sorry, the Shadestones corrupted them that it became apart of them. Turning their skin into a night sky-like pattern.

Yeah, even the new "New Universe" stuff with him in it were good, but less fantastic.

Yeup, I preferr more fantastic stuff... but whatever, people are trying to pull things into realisticness... which I can respect to some degree.

I'd rather not have my interdimensional heroes limited to 'real'.
