Importance in the Books
World Breaker was a term first used by Skulduggery in Death Bringer to describe super-powerful and evil sorcerers like Mevolent. The most famous (and possibly the strongest) World Breaker is Darquesse, who has the potential of destroying entire galaxies, as seen in The Dying Of The Light.
Mentioned World Breakers
- Darquesse: The strongest of the world breakers. She's the villain in the last few books.
