Balius a.k.a NightBane was the son of Wolfwing. He has two children, Cenara and Edward(Vampireslayer E) with his former wife, Lady Evina. Balius was previously the Avatar of Death, but is now Forsaken since it left him for his son. He was doomed to die, so he became undead as an Werepyre. He sought even more power, and drank the blood of a thousand dragons to become a Dracopyre and taking the name Nightbane. He was once the most deadly Dracopyre in the World Of Lore. He wanted to rule Darkovia, but an alliance made by: Artix, Galanoth, Lord Cyrus, Queen Safiria, Vampireslayer E, Zorbak, Were-king and Robina, defeated him. Epheel made him an offer to join The'Galin's forces, and to become an agent of destruction. At this time, his wife left him, for He joined The Network in hopes of using The'Galin to gain even more power, but Cenara convinced him otherwise. Afterwards, Nightbane dedicated his "life" to redeeming himself and killing The'Galin. In "Begining of the End" he killed Epheel and was converted to the side of unity, and in "The Fall Forseen" it is revealed that Ryuusei and Agent Smith wanted to turn his son, Edward, against him. He redeemed himself in The Manifestation, when he died fighting The'Galin.
