The Tribe of Darkness – The story starts with a sad scene: an entire village destroyed, a bloodshed going on… Only the brave warrior Katane survives. Now he remembers those horrible days: the queen had gathered her bravest warriors to stop the slaughter that had started a few days before among the population. The queen’s order was to kill all the enemies, but the warriors had only found corpses in the forest. Then the ambush: the spirits of the forest killed all the warriors, except two, and one of them is Katane. They go back to the village but during the night, this monstrous tribe invades the village and goes on massacring people. No one survives except for Katane, who will live forever with this horrible memory and grief.
