Authors Notes:

Karnak is a vile being and evil in every sense of that foul word. He studied Magic under Loafstar, as did Karl Strange. He was once Karlís closest friend and companion.

Average build once, but since he turned to the Dark Path, his body has become twisted and deformed. The price of service to the Dark Lords is a heavy one. Karnak was once considered one of the most beautiful men in the Phantom Realm, with clear blue eyes, flawless milk white skin and golden hair that resembled a halo when it was caught by the wind. He once was able to sing so sweetly that the very birds of the air would come to listen to his songs. All that was lost to him when he chose the Dark Path of magic. His hair is thin and scraggily, his face blotched with running pus filled sores and his eyes are permanently bloodshot. His once sweet voice has degenerated to a rough growl that cracks and breaks when he attempts to sing to relieve his pain.

Karnak has all the powers of the Dark Lords on his side and performs blood sacrifices to those evil beings. He has chosen this path of his own free will and thus he stands alone and friendless in the world he once belonged to.

Karnak, like Karl Strange, trained under the wizard, Loafstar. Karl and Karnak were once the closest of friends and blood brothers before Karnak chose to leave the world of Light. Now Karnak hates his once friend and seeks to destroy anything and everyone that Karl loves and cares about. Like the Ying and Yang of the world these two beings are bound together in the never ending patterns of the Dance of Life.
