Old Kingdom : The Forsaken
Hungry for souls, an evil force enslaves them.
While able to shift into many forms, Blood Shadows tend to create thin almost two dimensional looking shadow forms. Despite being made of blood they can crystallize and harden in order to form basic tools and slashing instruments. They are a minor dead however and are greatly affected by the use of Bells.
A lost art of Necromancy the Blood Shadows used to be favoured for stealth work or as a secondary fighting force when battlefields grew bloody in the midst of a conflict. They are a derivative of Shadow Hands that are hard to detect even with an Abhorsen’s Death sense. Their ability to slowly flow over surfaces as a thin viscous fluid is what helps them avoid detection until they coalesce before striking to attack.
