Cruor—the Earth Elementals of this world—mirror vampires in many ways: they are immortals who die by sunlight, decapitation, or staking. Quite traditional indeed. No sparkles need apply.Their blood can heal injury and disease, and they can influence of humans by erasing or creating thoughts in their minds. Cruor are extremely fast and strong, but they are not the fastest Elementals.
The intention of the Cruor was to purify the darkness in this world by eliminating it and by creating other Cruor to help them. Instead, some Cruor harbored darkness of their own, and soon this darkness became more of a keystone than an anomaly.
The original Cruor were humans who were buried alive, then resurrected by the Universe to hunt the darkness that walked the earth. Over time, however, a new weakness was discovered: Narcissus. Narcissus—or, daffodil—is a plant known to ward off Cruor, as it weakens them immensely. This discovery was made many years ago, around the time the Universe first created Earth Elementals. Humans were leaving flowers on graves to cover the scent of decay, and this prevented the rise of the undead, leaving the Cruor who already walked the earth to rely on their ability to turn a human through the poison in their fangs.
Despite their traditional roots, however, there’s a lot more to the dark and deceitful role of the Cruor. They were sent here to serve the mortal world, but their aim has become to force the mortal world to serve them. Soon, what was once mere paranormal fantasy will become reality for all of humanity within the Forever Girl world.
