Myrkurian is a gender in the Sylvian System, one of the four Nature Systems. It is a gender which is both connected to forests, deep naturecore, and their overall aesthetics but which has a specific and strong connection to dark, grandly and profoundly mysterious forests. One may feel like their gender is specifically related to dark forests or a specific part of them. For example, someone may feel that their gender is related to dark forests if their gender is deeply naturecoric but feels painful or mysterious. Myrkurian people can have any alignment and/or no alignment, and depending on what alignment they have, they could use another term from the Sylvian System to describe themselves. For example, a myrkurian person who is fiaspec could say they're mistic myrkurian, from mistian.
The term myrkurian was coined by FANDOM user Reign of the breadsticcs on April 9, 2021, after it was revealed that the original name for the term, obscurian, already belonged to a different identity. The flag was designed in mid February of 2021.
The term myrkurian comes from the Icelandic word "myrkur" which means "dark".
