“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.

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