The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Said apocalypse caused by a bunch of meteorites hiting the earth, conveniently hitting major cities first ([[Film/{{Armageddon}} sounds familiar ?]]) and causing a huge cloud of dust and ashes to clog the sky, preventing the sunlight from ever reaching the ground. Save for a couple of sacred spots, called stalites, where the last survivors of the human race, the walkers, built huge cities in the glory of the Sun God.

The player takes the role of Arkhan, a guardian of fire, who gets infected with a dark disease after preventing the assassination of the great priestess Lori. The disease most obvious effect is to turn Arkhan into an ugly as sin monster. It's then up to him to uncover to truth behind the priestess assassination despite having a face that now looks like it fell from the ugly tree and hit every branches on the way down.

* {{Badass}}: Even before being infected with the dark disease, Arkham was more than a decent fighter. The curse made him even stronger and granted him the ability to kill almost any foe in one blow (however this mighty blow worsen the progression of the disease quite a bit).
* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding: Even thought Arkhan saves the day, his father, his girlfriend and pretty much all his significant others are dead. However, it's up to interpretation whether the Runkas, the friendly aliens who cure Arkhan at the end, resurrect the other characters.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Even thought the dark disease disfigured Arkham, it still made him stronger and definitly more intimidating as the disease progresses.
* TheDarkSide: If Arkhan let's the dark disease progress too much, he will become even more monster like and gain one or two feet in height and a decent share of muscle mass.
* JekyllAndHyde: The player can shift the hero from light to dark behavior by pressing Tab. This makes Arkhan goes from [[NiceGuy nice guy mode]] to absolute [[AxCrazy ax crazy]].

* NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight: Guns still exist in this world but they are rare and so are the ammo. If the player is in a pinch, or just for the heck of it, he can shoot the ennemies who almost always have melee weapons.
