Micheal Moorcock's Elric of Melnibone - the original "Elric" for whom Edward Elric is named as an homage, the archetype for Vampire Hunter D, etc etc, all the doomed tragic langourous sexy but aloof heroes, guilt-ridden and mourning lost love...Elric was the last emporer of Melnibone, the Elvin kingdom that was ancient when human civilization was just beginning...a frail albino, he is sustained by his demon sword Stormbringer that devours the souls of those it kills...and Stormbringer does what it wills, much to Elric's horror and sorrow...Elric served the god-like Lords of Chaos, but brought about the catastophic end of their reign, the end of his age and people and magic and the beginning of the human age...[link]
