Long ago, a sword was forged for a mighty Elven duelist by the name of Felinis Dormental, a member of the Order of the Bladesingers. The blade was to serve him as he set forth to combat the demon Cerciria, one of the Lords of Hell, who at that time was wreaking havoc upon the lands known as Sellador. After a mighty duel, Felinis defeated his foe at the highest Peak of the range now called the Border Mountains, and sent him back to the burning hells. Soon thereafter, Felinis succumbed to his wounds and died alone on the freezing Peak.|
Time flowed by, and after nearly 2,000 years, the sword was discovered, still clutched in the hand of a frozen Elven hero, by a hobgoblin called Elzakrast. Being something of a sorcerer, he saw it for what it was, and used it for much evil. The evil caught up to him though, and Elzakrast was cursed with the unlife of a vampire.
In 3025 A.A. Elzakrast, working for the Black Dragon Krezix, led an assault on Khrunos-Dur, which was thwarted by a group of heroes from Gideon who killed the vampire and freed the dwarves. Roven of Truendore took up Darkglow, quickly learning of it's powers.
Several months after taking up Darkglow, Roven and his companions set out on a rescue mission, deep into the bowls of Hell it's self. It was there that he encountered Cerciria, defeated him, and freed the spirit of Felinis, who had been captured by the Demon Lord on his was to the afterlife. It was at that time that the elven warrior returened the full powers to the sword, giving Roven an even mightier weapon with witch to combat the forces of evil.
