Reins of Darkness
Taken from his village as a “tithe” by orcs at a young age, he was forced into hard labor. Over his time among the orcs, he learned to both hate and admire the power of the Dark Lord. One storm-lashed day, he saw his reflection in puddle on the ground, and suddenly knew that he could use that reflection to draw upon the Dark Lord’s magic. Using his new-found abilities of shadow-casting, he escaped his Orcish captors and fled to join the Giants in their resistance against the Dark Lord. His special connection to the Dark Lord have made him particularly adept at finding black mirrors for the giant armies.
Silver Lining is a unicorn with a blue coat, midnight blue hooves, and midnight blue mane and tail with ash-gray streaks. His cutie mark is a black stormcloud with a blue-white outline. Whenever he invokes his magic, blue-white lightning plays about his horn.
