Part 1: The Darkest Knight

Darkness.  Complete darkness.  All that he had ever known, swirling around him like the mist that filled his mind.  Blessed sunlight had never been attainable.  Black burns and scars were what welcomed him, should he step out into the very thing he craved more than life itself.  The light that is meant to comfort and lead, relieve sadness and remove nightmares of the direst kind was a cruel reminder of that cruel man who spawned him.  Biologically spawned from two fathers; both having abandoned him before he was five.  

One had created spawn such as him for maniacs like his three parents who were so caught up in the want for a child that the did not contemplate that he might not be the creature that they wanted.  Frankenstein's Monster held nothing to him and his brothers; awestiking and animalistic splices of human and beast.  Even he knew not what he was.  His half brothers and sisters - descendants of a mad-man, a pale, fragile imitation a deity - were being ripped from families, loving or otherwise, put into holdings like his.  A cage his own mother had relegated him too - a woman who was once desperate for the perfect child and was now desperate for a childless life with no responsibilities for the cursed one who had caused her much pain.  Never had the pain been intentionally inflicted, yet his very DNA seemingly required it, an impure fact of life.  

Signs of torture hung in the air around him, on his skin, upon his soul. Upon the air conditioned breeze, angry, throbbing howls of other unfortunates scraped the concrete walls, shaking the metal bars.  Pure unadulterated hatred had never been part of his life until this day.  Darkness streamed into his isolated soul, hidden in darkness.  He no longer had the courage to carry on being what he was.  No one was there to take him away from the loneliness in his soul, to banish the hunger and he vowed that no one would ever feel the desperation that he felt for that one person who cared.  Tonight he would become the one to save them, to take them away from here.  As soon as the last lonely, abandoned soul arrived.
