|“||I looked at him as I was preparing to fight him. It seemed as if he didn't care, he just leaned against a tree. That annoyed me. He had spikes running down his spine and arms. "How did you get those!??" I asked. "Huh? Oh, these!" He exclaimed, holding up his arms, "You really ought to make sure that no one else is with a wizard casting that spell. I just wrote all the gestures and stuff. Also, what gave it away was that we found a Dark Spike Hylian, that we captured, who said that she was a Spike Hylian." Enfuriated, I rushed at him. My eyes closed soon, never to open again.||”|

 Dark Spike Hylians Adventurers
Three sample Dark Spike Hylian adventurers are described below.
Resh is a Dark Spike Hylian Ranger. His job was to make sure that the army passed unseen and unheard. One time while doing this, some adventurers found him, one of which was a Hylian. "What are you doing here?" The Hylian asked. "Umm, playing in the trees?" Resh returned. The adventurers captured him and held him prisoner until he behaved. Despite a Dark Hylian's and Hylian's dislike for each other, they got on pretty well, and Resh joined the adventurers in their quest.
Tina is a Dark Spike Hylian Cleric. She loves helping her kind. She has a firm belief that the Hylians did them wrong, and that they should be punished. She put this belief into action when she met up with a Hylian adventuring party. As her party wasted the other Hylians, she focused on a Hylian Sorcerer. When she was in the middle of casting a death spell, her opponent muttered a few words and a dark beam came out of his finger and hit her. Darkness overtook her. Once she woke up, she couldn't remember anything except her name and spells. She looked herself over. "I think I was something different." She thought, because her appearance was of a Spike Hylian. The Sorcerer was with her. She left on a quest to find out who she is.
