A young man he was innocent, loving and loveable! He loved Sibyl Vane, a girl he loved to the vein before all that love died in vain! Henry Wotton was the name, of the assertive lord of shame, who tricked Dorian with a matter of eternal beauty and fame!
Sibyl was a lovely and beautiful girl who looked up to Dorian and wanted nothing but to be together with him.
After Dorian was tricked, he became the subject of a self-indulgent, hedonistic lifestyle (courtesy of Lord Henry) and his love for Sibyl has faded away until he completely rejected her for she was no longer his fit and for him, the concept of having a life partner-in-love had already died.
Sibyl begged him to get back to her and quit this utter madness, he but reacted arrogantly and with no regards to their love!
Sibyl learned of that and took her own life out of misery and deep despair.
And thus came the end of a love story, that put Sibyl in the unrequited love pain, before she took her own life, that innocence, that beauty!
Dorian, on the other hand, received a diabolical fate, a divine justice as a result of his immoral acts and frowned-upon activities, causing his life to be an agonizing time of continuous remembrance to his old beloved, Sibyl, and each of his sinful acts taking its toll in a magic-imbued portrait painted of him; a portrait that ages as time passes! And while he never ages he is never serene; with the portrait bound to his very soul, every scratch, every colour fading from it and every disturbance caused to it only transfers to his own flesh, let alone if torn apart, so imagine his neverending paranoia… just imagine!
