    Hundreds of years ago, prior to even the creation of the Guardians, Pitch Black ruled Earth in the shadows. This boogeyman manipulated, morphed and blended into darkness... forever craving the destruction of pure dreams… Using his ability to know every individuals’ greatest fears, Pitch’s nightmares proliferated across the minds of all of mankind allowing him to grow in power. At the peak of the Dark Ages, before The Guardians were chosen, all people were submissive, influenced and frightened by Pitch as he had always desired, but why did he want to be feared? Where did these powers come from? How did he rise? Well the rise of the Nightmare King is also the tragic fall of a father and hero.

    You know that old quote "It is better to be feared than to be loved"? Well, that's not the full quote. The full quote is "It is better to be feared than to be loved if you cannot be both". I just feel like this represents Pitch perfectly. He lost everything and was corrupted, so nobody loves him at all and he has to make people fear him to keep from being forgotten. DANG IT, HIS STORY IS SO SAD!!! CURSE MY SOFT DARKNESS LOVING HEART!!! * dying empath noises *

    Edit: I just realized something. Pitch craves nightmares, right? This wording makes it sound like he almost feeds off of them to increase his power. What if after he takes in the dark energy, the nightmare is gone because he basically absorbed it into himself? If nightmares can occur without him inducing them in this universe (idk if they can, I haven't read the books in a while), maybe he could take away the naturally occuring nightmares and use the power he gains to cause nightmares that punish truly terrible people? Every once in a while, though, he could give a kid a nightmare about something dangerous that they truly need to be scared about so their fear of danger is reinforced.

    I thought the story was that in the end only 3 people survived from that planet populated by darkness and killer flying monsters.

    Since pitch was at his peak during the dark ages
    I have a theory that pitch is actually a representation of the Black Plague it affect millions and people feared it so much so it drove some insane
    As towards the end of the plaque out break and in to the early Renaissance period
    The Guardians would represent the hope of the plague disappearing and hopes returning to children and adults

      Probably power over shadows/darkness. Maybe also teleportation as seen in the movie when he shrinks into the shadows somewhere and pops out elsewhere
