A nameless blade that cuts through the dark,
wielded by a woman who was cold and stark.
A faceless woman with devils in her breast,
a plague of nightmares robs her of any rest.
Disaster follows the whispering trails,
behind echoes of carnage and misery wails.
Haunted by betrayal,
a wandering blade for vengeance's portrayal.
Phantoms hide within her very own shadow,
she can't stop until she sees their blood flow.
She must kill to keep her soul alive,
a banquet of evil, the dark ones shall thrive.
A sea of demons she is destined to expel,
lest the demon inside her fails to be quelled.
