Nightfall: Chapter 2
Two years after the events of Dream Drop Distance, the Darkness became so great that it swallowed the worlds, locking them away within its merciless abyss.
Twilight Town, now covered in eternal night, stands as one of last Sanctuaries of Light. It is where players begin their journey.
Ever resourceful, the Moogles have created a safe place for refugees. They have charged the Denizens of Light with finding Castle Oblivion: it holds a key to the puzzle of the lost worlds.
But within the dark shadows of the sanctuary world a powerful dark force still looms, waiting to strike. Each survivor must choose whether to go to Castle Oblivion or stay behind to protect the world from the dragon that lurks in the shadows.

Name: Cloud of Darkness
Age: Unknown (looks 25-ish but she's been around for forever, so no one really knows how old she is...)
Gender: Female (although some would argue that she is more of an 'it', for all intents and purposes she's a she)
Species: Unknown but Humanoid
Power: The Cloud of Darkness has an arsenal of Darkness-based energy attacks:
1) A long range beam 2) An anti-air attack utilizing four long range beams fired vertically from points around her location 3) A wall of energy that moves towards the target (only for a short distance (8 feet maximum)) 4) An exploding ball of Dark energy
In addition to this, she commands two tentacle-like creatures that are attached to her, called Pain and Suffering (Pain is on her left, and Suffering is on her right), which do the menial task of physical attacks; they stretch to about three metres away from her actual position.
Pain and Suffering also have their own abilities; Pain will sometimes use Lightning (a Thunder-element Black Magic spell stronger than Thundara but weaker than Thundaga) while Suffering can cast Esuna and Haste.
As an evasive maneuver, she can disappear into a Dark Corridor and reappear anywhere within 15 feet of her original location.
As an entity of pure Darkness and evil, she can control the Heartless to an extent (shall we say up to Large Body/Defender sized Heartless? Although not too many of those at one time) [Ability was approved by Serif]
Weapons: Dark Energy; Pain; Suffering
Appearance: The Cloud of Darkness wears a long billowing cloak that fade from red at the top to black at the bottom; the inner surface is totally black. She also has two long, yellow tentacles that have mouths and are semi-sentient; Pain, on her left, has eyes and Suffering, on her right, has blade-like frills. Her hair is silver and explodes out in various directions in locks (no individual strands), and her irises are red. She stands at about five foot five, but floats at about six foot three.
Personality: To start with, she only talks about herself in the plural (ie. "We" instead of "I"); this comes from the fact that she treats herself and her minions (Pain and Suffering) as a single entity but separate personalities. When fighting, she prefers to stay at a distance and attack the enemy with her energy attacks, and will use Pain and Suffering to beat away people who get to close. She has an overwhelming desire to consume powerful objects and/or entities so as to use that energy, and her primary goal is to "return all worlds to the Void". She belittles opponents, and treats all other beings as inferior, which keeps most allies at bay; however, she has been known to cooperate with or ally herself to other powerful forces of evil.
Original World: Crystal Tower (specifically, The Void)
Current Location: The World That Never Was
Background: Cloud of Darkness has been around since the dawn of time, rearing her head every time the balance between Light and Darkness tipped. 1018 years prior to World Destiny, she attempted to engulf her homeworld in a nothingness she calls "The Void". Four Warriors of Darkness stepped forth and defeated her and beat back the overwhelming flood of light. 1000 years later, it was now Darkness that threatened the world, and she took control of an evil sorcerer named Xande to blanket the world in Darkness, thus stopping the flow of time and tipping the balance of Light and Darkness. Four new Warriors, this time Warriors of Light, were chosen; Luneth the Ninja, Arc the Magus, Refia the White Magician, and Ingus the Onion Knight. Together, they were able to force her back into the void and save the world of Crystal Tower.
Now, with tensions rising between Dark XII and Organization XIII, she has sensed the growing power of Darkness and returned from the Void, now eagerly searching for power to consume and Light to destroy. She has decided that this time she must find allies, so as to prevent a third defeat at the hands of new Warriors.
We looked on the pathetic child barring our way; how futile it was, their petty resistance to our will. They brandished a blade unlike any we had come across before; it looked like a key, but had a hilt and guard, like a sword. It stank of Light and... Hope. We snarled.
"Foolish boy, do you know who we are?" we said. The boy gave us a look with eyes that blazed with that same light... that same hope. It only served to enrage us more.
"Not a clue," he said, "but I'm guessing that with the Keyblade at my side, my Light can defeat your Darkness." We laughed; it was a speech we had heard used before, with only minor details changing from one to the next, made all the more laughable from the wafting scent of Darkness that the child gave off.
"You have Darkness inside you as well" we said. The child gave us an astonished look, and we slipped into the Darkness' silky embrace, only to emerge behind him. We bent in close to his ear as he gaped at the place where we once stood. "Give us your Darkness and your Light." He turned on the spot, as Pain lashed out to strike at him. He dodged, and moved to do a jumping attack. We smirked.
"How galling," we said, and launched our anti-air attack; four beams of sweet darkness shot from points around us, forming a box of protection. He spun mid-air to avoid it and landed gracefully on his feet. This child just didn't know when to give up and embrace the Void.
I think CoD and Maleficent might be either great friends or mortal enemies (entirely based on their first encounter). I also wanna have her meet Kuja and mock him for his inability to control his darkness (he might also be her key to learning about Trance...)
Also, I would like to point out that my posts may or may not be in first person (I will probably stick with whatever person is being used by the others (most likely third person)).
