Early Life Edit
The Cold One Rises Edit
Sometime during the War of the Ancients, Daraknis started to warm up to the Burning Legion. The Faction that the Highborne was working with. Daraknis started working with them, and becoming more like them, Starting to Trade in his normal Mage abilities for the dark powers of the Warlocks, Getting his own faction of Demons. Natrually Daraknis ended up like every other demon lord, and was forced to protect the Well of Eternity & The Portal that would bring forth Sargeras.
As expected, the demons were defeated, Daraknis was banished.
Demonic Partnership Edit
While Daraknis was Banished, He lived with the Burning Legion on Argus whilst his family was hiding on The Blackbane Isle. He worked with the Legion for several centuries waiting on the next attack on Azeroth
Partnership of the Blackrock Orcs, & Sacrafice Edit
It was Common that the Blackrock orcs would sacrafice beings to The Lords of the Burning Legion as proven Years Later. While the Orcs were invading Azeroth. The Orcs were informed about the events 10,000 years ago...and they finally had a powerful ally.
After several years as a slowly dying spirit, Daraknis found out about The Scourge & The plague of undeath, Stealing a concentrated Version of it, Daraknis used it to revive was was left of his decaying corpse. Semi Re-allying with the Burning Legion, He came up with his own plans to set the world to flame himself...
Plans of the Destructive Edit
The Stand of Destruction Edit
Following having his younger brother working for him under his new name, something happened that he was not prepared for, while trying to infiltrate the black temple to get the Illidari to join him, His little brother was waiting outside. As Daraknis walked out, He learned that Conthus had discovered his plan, and knew everything that happened. Enraged, Conthus charged, The two started battle, but as the two were semi-defeated. Daraknis tryed to steal energies from the world to become more powerful and be able to destroy Conthus. but as he charged up these energies, he was lifted into the air, and shattered into different pieces that flew to the sky & walls.
Second Resserection and Attempted Conquerering of Shattrath Edit
3 months after Daraknis semi-exploded, one of Daraknis' Minions got ahold of the final Soulstone. And managed to Restore Daraknis. During his Resserection, The Burning Legion Re-gained control of many territories in Draenor, and were spreading to Azeroth starting at Sunwell Grove.
Daraknis assisted the Legion with their conquering, but there was one last place for him to get...Shattrath City. Half-way through the battle, Conthus entered in using his Hearthstone. Rushing to the Terrace of Light, Daraknis used a Strange Dark Stone, He managed to corrupt A'dal. Slowly turning him into a Corrupted Naruu.
As the Battle Raged on, Conthus charged in fighting the Naruu. Just in time, The Aldor & The Scryers put aside their differences and fought along side Conthus, Calling upon the powers of the Scryers, A'dal was held into place While the holy powers of the Aldor's High Priests, slowly restored the Naruu back to Normal. Daraknis watching the event, turned for an escape. Kil'jaedan would NOT be pleased.
Finally, With A'dal restored, Daraknis lost his grip over his last corrupt encampment, Fleeing the seen, he was confronted by Conthus, after a dramatic conversation, it turned right into a battle. after moments of combat, Acheus was knocked from Conthus' hands, The two exchanged a glare, and after a few strikes, Conthus used a shadowly thunder clap knocking Daraknis back, while going for a hard fall infront of Shattrath, Conthus jumped into the air, and swung the Whirlwind axe, the blade cut through the center of Daraknis' back, going half-way deep, Cutting his Vertebrae in half. As soon as Daraknis hit the ground, he was dead. Conthus looked at his brothers corpse and walked into Shattrath. As his spirit left his body and entered the twisting nether, Daraknis used his last words to tell Conthus he was proud and he was sorry.
- Daraknis' Changed Last Name "Destostorm" Parodies Meryl Felstorm's Last Name, & Replaces Fel with the Player's Shortened term for the Warlock Talents "Destruction"
- Daraknis was the First Written Villian in the Conthus Shadowbane Stories according to Conthus & Brandius themselves
- Daraknis is a Parody of a Character in Conthus' Creators mind, Connor, The Creator of these characters has always wanted siblings, Yet by experience he knows that Brothers & Sisters are great family/friends, But they can also be the bane of your existence 20% of your time.
- Daraknis plays in Connor's Dark Humor in Real life, from the passage of Evil Siblings: Daraknis managed to Embaress Conthus by trying to set the world of azeroth to flame. Daraknis tryed to compete for Conthus' record as most powerful adventurer to date & managed to irritate him for that.
