Spera ultam.” Last Hope. - 094/100 Themes.

A dark-mage’s bodily functions require magical energy.  If one’s body sustains too much damage, they drop into a state known as “Wrath.”  It’s a last-stage, crocodile brain, reaction: kill something, take its magic energy, and survive.  Numerous historical occurrences of Wrath have caused society to regard dark-mages as religious and social pariahs.

In Shifters like Rivek, Wrath often causes an extreme manifestation of their alternate form.

"You’re right, Sorian.  I am a monster.”  Rivek’s eyes lightened from blue to gold.  His pupils dilated.  ”And I am hungry.”
