Dark Ryder

Dark Ryder

Character Description

Dark Ryder is the spiritual protector of New Earth. He is in fact not a single man (or in a few cases, woman) but a spirit entity inhabiting a living host for the express purpose of ensuring the planet does not die.

The spirit that is Dark Ryder was once less heroic. it inhabited the most powerful beings it could find to protect the planet through destruction and corruption of its enemies. Each body it inhabited left with it some of the person's personality and skills. The mystic force was "corrupted" and became more good.
