The Rise of Dark Pierce was an Arc that immediately followed the death of Malakai. Finally at full power once more, Dark Pierce, along with Nariscia, would go on to wreak scientific based havoc on Haven, deploying biochemical weapons, and weapons of mass destruction. Dark Pierce would go on to completely defeat everyone in The Pack, until he was destroyed by Raith. This Arc ended when Raith died of his injuries after the fight. This Arc featured the return of Marcus for the duration.
