ok it states in The book the Ezra made the dark hunter himself to combat the kurl but that it grew out of Controll sneaking away to kill people that were talented not that Ezra and roygaris(the reaver) merged into one being he then goes on to state with kylar on the roof of the hall of winds that the dark hunter is his hubris(his pride or self confidence.) So the articels here aren't adding up I recently bought the completed trilogy and man let me tell ya there is some things in there to blow your mind even threw in the chapters about how feir got in to Ezra's wood what he found and how he got out.
