Blackmist is a sentient life-force that makes up all living things in the AWW universe. There have been questions as to whether it is a actual person or a faceless diety, as characters in the game are not consistant in their references to Blackmist as "it" and "he."
Blackmist has the ability to host its power within an individual, granting that person the title of Armed With Wings and causing them to grow a pair of glorious wings and shine in a bright white luster. Hosted person is aware of being Blackmist without losing sanity, gains unmeasurable power, speed, and Blackmist's ability to revive dead beings instantly, even control, launch and deflect large amount of pure energy. However, the energy Blackmist can hold on a certain individual has satisfaction point, as shown in Lone Warrior's battle with Network. So far in the series, the Lone Warrior and Leo are the only characters to be given this title.
Whenever a monster or person in the AWW universe is killed, they dissolve into a dark fog and return to Blackmist. The dissipation starts at the fatal injury points towards the ends of the body, however with great power a being can be destroyed instantly.
In rare cases, righteous individuals may be granted another chance and be ressurected by Blackmist. Eivana is also chosen by Blackmist, which impregnated her to give birth to Leo. On the other hand, powerful swords called the Blades of Eden can be used to completely destroy Blackmist, allowing them to permanently kill a person.
