Writing, Black Shuck

Breath Tragger

Between the living worlds and the alleged world that awaits us after we die, there exists a transportation network called the Breath Tragger.  This network works non-stop to deliver Shades to their various  destinations, and in doing such, recycles their life essences and keeps  the balance of the universe. However, like all transportation systems,  the Breath Tragger is not without its flaws. Sometimes, more often when races are warring, the Breath Tragger becomes congested. It is during this time that the greedy Black Shuck  likes to surface. Like a sticky-fingered child eyeballing candy, it  hungrily selects Shades to serve its own purposes.

The Black  Shuck can be described succinctly as an infinite pocket dimension. It is  not known exactly how, but the Black Shuck manages to pluck Shades out  of the Breath Tragger before they are able to reach their final  destinations, thereby upsetting the natural flow. The captured Shades  are tossed into the dimension of Black Shuck, awakening in a place  referred to as Limbo.

There are many theories as to why the Black  Shuck is capturing and holding onto Shades. The most popular one is the  belief that the Black Shuck is building an army; an army so powerful  that it will be able to usurp the entire universe. Whether it is  creating an army or not, the demise of the universe seems inevitable if  the Shade theft continues.

With each passing moment, the balance  of the universe tips ever so slightly in the Black Shuck's favour as it  continuously rips Shades from the Breath Tragger. Now that you've  died on your world and have been ensnared by the Black Shuck's fierce  jaws, please ask yourself one question: are you going to let this Shade  plundering continue?
