Easily one of the darkest and most barbaric practices human beings could perform was cannibalism. Throughout human history, cannibalism was done either as a last resort for food, for medicinal purposes, or to magically gain the essence of their victims. Now the real life middle ages were dark and violent times and I intend to keep my fantasy book on the same standard. With this in mind, I am thinking of including cannibalism in my fantasy book and it will be a traditional practice for a particular group of people. It will also serve as the ultimate fate of one of the characters.
