A world exists that mirrors earth, only it harbors a dark secret. The World's Nightmares. Whereas human's dream, they come up with horrors that are beyond there control. These beings are finally given life through the magic known as Hell's binding. High mages made a pact with Lucifer himself, he granted them access to this world.
They used there power's to take control of the world, and shift it into agony. After years of torment and control, people decided to fight back, and face there fears. A order was born, the Order of The Akumas. Desperate humans made a contract with a Demon who opposes Lucifer. They gained the ability to face there nightmares, and no longer require sleep. They all gained powers from this, the power depends on what there nightmares were, They gained the abilities of there nightmares, they purge the mage's and freed the world, but at the cost they could never be humans again. Demon's Taint ran through there blood.
To this Day the Existence is hidden but they are still around. They fight the nightmares that still escape from the hole that the mage's torn through out the world of dreams. These warriors fight without any credit, they fight to protect the world from its own nightmares. The Akuma's are few, but there order protects humanity from it's fear. The Task to fight Fear itself. This is the Akuma's Afterglow.
