I’ve been musing over this for a fair amount of time, but I want to know if it’ll work before building a whole world. So I’ll get down into the who, what, when etc part of it.
He was a soldier for his country, in his mid-twenties. He protected the people, respected the country ruler, but eventually took a turn for the worse. A continuous habit of hot temper, strong spirits, and frequent killing. It continued until he attacked a disguised enchantress and her companion. She cursed him to be a death-bringer, hidden from society, cursed to collect the dead’s life-spirits. No one can see him, and he’s afraid to touch a living person.
A death-bringer curse. Causing the victim to perform death’s deeds and deliver lost souls. The victim’s skin color grows almost unnaturally pale. The person’s eyes will glow, especially when angry. The victim cannot be seen by regular human beings, only those who have the talent to look beyond. Touch will most often result in death or severe injury. The victim naturally shows up at a dying person’s last moments to take the life-spirit, which only the death-bringer can see. Occasionally the victim will lose control of their emotions and have “dangerous fits” that lasts from a few minutes to an hour.
The character was in his mid-twenties when he was cursed. The curse lasts around four, almost five years. The country is in the reign of it’s third leader.
I haven’t completely came up with a solid geography idea but the attack happened in a mountainous region. The country has rulers, soldiers, and villagers. Much like a kingdom. But more along the line of emperors or courts in the case of the ruler.
See What and Who for background and curse info.
I hope I explained it good. If I need to, I’ll add more info. The main thing is would this work?
