I don't know about you, but I thought the darkwraith covenant was the best covenant of the first game. It felt great defeating the four kings for the first time, and that whole explanation Kaathe gave you of being the direct descendant of Manus and being a pawn of the light was just awesome. I know he might have been trying to manipulate me, but it would explain how we weren't affected by the dark like other undead were, plus the idea of becoming something as powerful as Manus is just....EPIC. I put the idea in my fanfic as a truth, that the characters we make are somehow linked to Manus, since they can actually master the dark. Anyway, nice pick man, I hope your still making beautiful works of art like this one, and the other two picks I've commented on.
Well actually Kirk was a Darkwraith BECAUSE he was a Chaos Servant, mostly because he witnessed the suffering of the Fair Lady, and her selfless sacrifice and would do anything to help ease her pain, and the only way to ease her pain is gift her humanity, and the best way to obtain humanity is through lifedrain. Kirk's story really is a sad one, as his own knightly honor led to his murderous behavior.
