About This Quiz

Everyone wants to be the "good guy" in their own story. No matter what you do, you can't truly think it's evil or else you wouldn't do it. Even if everyone else thinks it's bad, you'll be able to justify why it's a good thing. Why, your darkness isn't so dark after all. Maybe your darkness is the kind of thing that's needed to contrast the light. Or maybe it's just the fastest, easiest way to get things done. So, sure, you're probably not a bad person, but like just about everyone else in the world, you must have a bit of a dark side. And maybe that dark side gives you a bit of dark magic to work with as well. Hey, we can all use an edge now and then, right?

However you come by your darkness and whatever reason you want to use it is a deeply personal thing that we don't need to get into here. But, just for fun, why don't we see if we can figure out exactly what kind of dark magic it is that you possess? Surely there's nothing to be scared of in the dark, right? Take the quiz and see!
