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.
Many, many years ago, our Universe used its power of creation to make Earth, and the Earth was an art to watch on and manipulate and intrigue. It was through this creation that the Universe realized they could create life that could sustain itself. The trees would grow without the Universe commanding it to be so. The wind would blow, the waves would roll, the earth would crack and shift.
But with this new world came a weakness. The Universe’s energy was depleting faster than it could replenish, and it feared soon it would fade out of existence. It was then the Universe create Humans, and so designed them that they would be an energy, and the Universe could draw from their positive energy each day and while the Universe fed on this energy these humans would sleep.
Some of the humans, however, had within them a darkness. The Universe could not thrive on their energy, and so sleep did not come so easily for them. In their restlessness, they caused destruction among their lands and cities and towns, and with each life source that one human killed off, the Universe began to feel more of a threat on their source of life.
And so came about the creation of theCruor, as the Universe was one that could only create and not destroy. The Cruor, who would later become known by the modern man or woman as vampires, represent the element of Earth.
