Major Story Arcs

Seven Soldiers of Victory

Guilt is set on Sir Ystin in modern-day Los Angeles. It dogs the knight's steps, telling him of the death and corruption of Camelot, and of how Ystin failed those he loved. It tries to convince the knight that all is lost, and suicide is the only way to absolve him of his failures. It takes control of a street hooligan and spurs him and his friends to torment Ystin further. This gives Ystin the push he needs to overcome Guilt, however, and Guilt dissipates as Ystin vows to uphold the glory of Camelot.

Powers and Abilities

Guilt is invisible to all but those it stalks, and is intangible and impossible to destroy by physical means. It is able to uncover an individual's deepest guilt and shame, and to manipulate this to control and destroy the person, typically by driving them to suicide.
