Exalted: In A Mirror Darkly
Once upon a time, there was a swordsman who shone with the light of the Sun.
He was great, and powerful, and brave. He slew many monsters, and made Creation safe for the people. He was a hero, and everyone loved him.
But there were those that were afraid of what he might become… afraid that, eventually, his power would corrupt him, as it had his brothers and sisters. So they slew the swordsman.
Now the swordsman is back. He is still great, and powerful, and brave. But he is no longer kind. He still slays monsters, but he is not loved by the people.
