The Dark One is an entity of darkness, and the overall antagonist of the entire story; however, to date, he has not played a major role in the story.


The Dark One was originally an angel named Forscythe. He was created by The Four to rule over darkness. Eventually, he began to question why The Four were the rulers, and tried to seize power. However, he was defeated and banished. Now called only The Dark One, he hides in shadows and plots.


The Dark One has control over darkness and shadows. He also has the ability to create life, as shown with the Larve and, some speculate, the Tarrasque.
