She had curves in all the wrong places - some of them cast a 3-dimensional shadows, still others hummed a low, discordant note as they flitted about like flies. She was nothing like other girls - she was an abomination from the 6th plane of torment

The Cursed Muramasas
Muramasa was a famous swordsmith who founded the Muramasa school and lived during the Muromachi period (14th to 16th centuries) in Japan. Oscar Ratti and Adele Westbrook said that Muramasa “was a most skillful smith but a violent and ill-balanced mind verging on madness, that was supposed to have passed into his blades. They were popularly believed to hunger for blood and to impel their warrior to commit murder or suicide.
It has also been told that once drawn, a Muramasa blade has to draw blood before it can be returned to its scabbard, even to the point of forcing its wielder to wound himself or commit suicide. Thus, it is thought of as a demonic cursed blade that creates bloodlust in those who wield it.
Beware of dark wizards
Hide your mouth, the first thing she’d been taught. Hide your fangs, hide your red as blood lips, your pale as snow skin and your hair shining brighter than lank dead hair ought.
Aorta Meridiana Faust had little intention of hiding. Perhaps a cloak to cover her mouth, perhaps a little muggle product in her hair to make it more lifelike.
But she was truly damned if she was ever going to hide.

Light and Dark have always been twins, it is how the world is, that balance.
Balance ever present in the world, light and dark and up and down and cold and hot.
People forget their small sibling that is all which is between.
The grey spaces, the middle, and the tepid and lukewarm and in-between temperatures. The pivot, about which they balance.
Draw all the divides you like but remember that there is also the line, and that some people walk it. Agents Albion and Tenebros never forgot. How could they when they were the Unspeakables own proof of concept?
