The Dawn Stealer was created from the brain of Solus, god of the sun, as he was trying to raise the day from Umbra’s embrace. In his effort, his headache grew and grew until the pain formed into the being of energy that would become the Dawn Stealer. Breaking forth from his mind, the ‘thief’ took with him the power of the dawn, as well as the deepest secrets of the gods. From there, he fled to the Astral plane to raise himself.
In his godly form, the being is a twisting mass of magic, surrounding a large, glowing eye. The Dawn Stealer is characterized with human traits as an exotic beauty, with brown skin, short, dark brown hair, and eyes the color of dark earth. He is very tall and willowy, and looks somewhat insane. He is known to pose riddles to charismatic mortals. He is known to give advice to mortals in dire need, but of course, at a cost to them.
