Capabilities

Users possess a dark form of Divinity, these types of users have divinity and divine powers granting them an immense amount of raw power beyond the mundane; however, their divine source is darker in nature while still being considered "holy" beings.

Just the same as Divinity, user possesses powers that are deemed holy but in a dark version that could make them a powerful class of divine beings of darkness, making users potential masters of the dark-divine forces that govern the cosmos as dark beings that could either help reflect the cosmic balance to maintain order or beings of pure malice set out to destroy/corrupt, etc. The level and forms of dark divinity are variable and unique by the user's nature and character of being, thus weaker or stronger users of divinities are ultimately reliant on the user alone.

Users can gain this type of divinity by having a divine ancestry, being transformed into a dark divinity either by another more powerful dark divinity, a deity, higher being, by faith, channels, act as a vessel for the power/soul of a deity, mimic/steal powers from a dark divinity or be enhanced/evolved to the point of godhood. However, at times users of dark divinity are weaker or stronger than deities depending on the type of divine being they are in question.

Not all divine beings possess this dark divine power are evil, but composed of a darker divine nature, mostly by accessing their own inner darkness, thus creating a darker version of their divine powers either by falling into a darker status, achieving total balance between divinity and dark divinity or so on. How it’s used is solely dependent on the user alone.
