What is the Profound Darkness?

Postby DarkMyau » Fri Dec 28, 2018 7:19 am

Is she god? Or just a powerful demon. The devil in this universe for example.

Did the Profound Darkness create the Universe in your opinion?

I'm asking because I've always considered her to be God. She created the Universe, split from the light and tried to destroy it all. There's a great fan fiction "The Beast Between Worlds" which describes the Darkness and I took it as what she pretty much is. Thus the reason we can beat her is because she is exhausted, and in my opinion we don't kill her just diminish her enough that she isn't able to maintain a physical presence in our Universe anymore.

So what do you all think?

The Profound Darkness is only 'evil' because the Great Light says so.

I think an entity that sends a Dark Falz to destroy planets and make people suffer has to be pretty evil.

It’s possible that the Profound Darkness is more of a force than an actual being with its own thoughts and opinions, but the people of Algo aren’t evil for destroying it, as the it was trying to kill them. Whether that was its original intent or not doesn’t matter too much.

Not only that, Chaz does indeed say that he doesn’t understand why they must do what the Great Light says, comparing it to Zio doing the Dark Force’s dirty work.
