What the general texts, lightened for mortal consumption of the holy verses say about the saint, Darna.

And it came to pass that the islander Darna, a devout mortal follower of Danna’d and diver, looked upon the Anathema that her innocent people in their ignorance had welcomed with suspicion, having innately sensed their damned natures upon the sight of them despite their lying visages. While her people partook of the food that the Anathema provided, after destroying the life on her isle, in trust, Darna, in her suspicion, refused as the immaculate dragon did to fall prey to the temptations of the Anathema, though being simply a mortal without the enlightenment of second breath, she was unable to directly oppose the Anathema, with their chains of pleasant lies upon the hearts of her people. In a moment of enlightened judgment she ascertained how her people to be rid of the taint of the Anathema, seducing one from their number, the Unclean, Trickster, turning him against his fellows in her righteousness and purity, refusing to become a doxy for such a being and binding him to her with chains over his heart in marriage. It was not a moment too soon, for when the Anathema finally turned on her ignorant people, Jok the Blasphemous turning his foul familiars against them, slaughtering them wholesale. Trickster at her urgings summoned sorcerous disaster upon the minions of his damned leader Jok, for love of the mortal that had bound him as her husband. Jok then turned on Trickster, gravely wounding him in the process, though Darna in her righteous emulation of Danna’d denounced the monster, driving him from that place with her words and a strike that brought blood to the face of the foul Blasphemous. Thus she turned her sights to Trickster, not having the powers of enlightenment of the dragons she was incapable of binding him in the depths as Danna’d did with the most of the Anathema so as to not trouble the innocent. Knowing that despite the Unclean’s love for her, he would bring ruin to her people should he stay, and she with him. She thus became his warden in her wisdom, taking on the burden of staying his damnation from destroying the people of creation for the rest of her days.
