A Darkworker is a Mage who studies magic under the guidance of a demon, imp or Fallen Angel. Darkworkers interact with creatures commonly associated with being "evil" and do works based on destruction. Expelled from Mage society for being "tainted" or "evil" a Darkworker is shunned and never allowed to interact with their society. When individula Mages are condemned for being a Darkworker, other Mages are prohibited from interacting with them under the most dire of consequences.
