"In the deep of night, when the air lies still, far from the light, comes a frosty chill, the darkness is upon you."

The Darkness is said to be a ghostly apparition who preys on human souls in the night, leaving its victims with varying degrees of Night Sickness, and in severe cases, transforming them into one of The Lost.

Unfortunately, all that is known of The Darkness was gathered by those who've been exposed. Even mild afflictions of Night Sickness leave victims prone to hallucinations and crazed fits, so little of their reports can be taken for more than hearsay.
