    Night Stalker

    Of the Night Stalker, there is no history, only stories. There are ancient tales woven into the lore of every race and every culture, of an impossible time before sunlight and daytime, when night reigned alone and the world was covered with the creatures of darkness—creatures like the Night Stalker. It is said that on the dawn of the First Day, all the night creatures died. All save one. The Night Stalker. Evil's embodiment, Night Stalker delights in his malevolence. He created the primal role of the Night Terror, the Boogeyman, and as long as there have been children, his is the specter summoned to terrify them. This is a role he relishes--nor are these empty theatrics. He does indeed stalk the unwary, the defenseless, those who have strayed beyond the lighted paths or denied the warnings of their communities...

    Conceptually I'm fine with NS being the one horror from the beginning of the world that has endured. However, the transition from the world being a dark and terrible place to NS being the lone survivor seems a bit too abrupt. Why did everything else die so suddenly, while NS survived? Furthermore, beyond just surviving that initial culling of the night critters, how has he survived through all the ages until now? A bit more explanation here of his power/will to survive would be nice.

    He's a sort of new age vampire, so he;ll prolly hid somewhere while the other walked out in the light he didn't. He survived due to cunningness or sheer awsomeness, or the fact that he never has to walk in the light for he can create the darkness....
    But indeed why did everything die at that time?
