Black magic is the use of supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes. With respect to the left-hand path and right-hand path dichotomy, black magic is the malicious, left-hand counterpart of benevolent white magic.
The Destruction Of PerripetEdit
Drakos, once a white wizard, turned to the dark arts of black magic, and became a corrupted and evil wizard. He murdered every white wizard from the Court of Perripet, except for Poliphaus, who survived. He then ransacked the palace and destroyed it, leaving the entire civilization to ruins.
The dark wizard Manhura, the ancient Egyptian priest, was secretly plotting to kill King Khufu and become the Pharaoh. Although defeated by Hugh Mongous before he could succeed, he resurrected in 1935, when archeologists disturbed his tomb. He then ended up in Pandrudica, and overthrew the kingdom and remained king for 30 Pandrudican years, before being defeated by Hugh Mongous in the Septimian/Manhurian War.
