"The Darkas are also called "DarkHeart" because they act only according to their creed. They are the children of the water and they reign on numerous planets.
Pacifists of nature, they know how to take the weapons in order to annihilate their objectors. The "Alliance" is a big joke for them. They know that they are not able to annihilate alone the menace represented by the T.B.O.T.S, therefore they joined the alliance. Nevertheless, they will make their maximum in order to take the planets, taken by their objectors. With or without the agreement of the alliance..."
