Backstory

        Humans could never become Gods on their own. Only when they dedicated themselves, binding their minds into objects by swearing an oath, they would become pure heroic spirits, so that they could chase after their endless missions. The Sword of Darkness was the symbol of enmity and sins. In despair, potential of the Sword wielder would erupt.

With his soul liberated from the curse after death, the Paladin King of Darkness decided to attach himself to the Sword in attempt to fight the curse of Demons with his own soul. After several generations, the effect of the curse slowly faded away, and what attached next to the Sword was the Paladins’ will — power and slaughter. A tradition revolving around the sinful Sword of the Paladin King of Darkness was later established. Those who inherited the title and power of the Sword must be killed by his disciple, and attach their souls to the Sword to accompany their successors. Until now, the countless souls of warriors on the Sword had already overcome the curse. The inheritors refined their skills to reach the pinnacle of swordsmanship. Their minds were more fearsome than the curse, and more maniacal than the Demons...
