The AwakenedThe Awakening. It is a feeling, a reaction, of the human mind when the veils of reality are parted and the horror of what were once only nightmares become strikingly real. It paralyzes, sends the mind reeling, with confusion and terror beyond belief. A person's brain tries to tell them that it isn't real, that it is, it can only be, a dream. That the world we live in obeys the laws of reality, a world where the only monsters out there are fantasy, can only be us. However, the reality is that there are monsters, demons, creatures that can't...shouldn't...exist, feeding upon humanity. The very cell's of one's body rejects this new reality, after all, evolution has placed us on top of the good chain. By the time the brain realizes that humans are nothing more than prey for these creatures that shouldn't exist, those creatures are upon them, tearing them apart, devouring them, and those that they love. For those very few that survive, the line between what was reality and what was myth and legend are forever shattered. They now know what lives in the shadows. That knowledge can drive them to never sleep again, to go insane, to take their lives. However, a few, a very small few, use this knowledge, this heightened senses, to fight back. Their pain, their need for vengenance, pushes them to search for these creatures and to destroy them. They are not longer the prey. They are now the hunters. They are the Awakened.
