Through the MAW
The evil deity of Yar mysticism. Represented as a dark spot in the Roil it seeks to destroy the Yar or turn them against themselves. During the Yar voyage through the Roil they were constantly beset upon by Dark Stars minions and through the teachings of the Masquerader the Yar were able to learn to defend themselves and their ship against these foes. It is seen as destruction and treachery incarnate, caring for naught but annihilation.
Post voyage, Dark Star remains a threat, sending his minions to harrass ships travelling through the Roil and occasionally setting them loose on a roil channeler who loses control of his abilities.
Humans see the Dark Star as facets of The Six.
