Black Eyes[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Black eyes are similar in appearance to humans, albeit with slightly grayer than usual skin, jet-black eyes, and hair that is either pure white or stark black. When in sun light, a black eye's body appears to be supernaturally shadowed.


Black eyes are surrounded by myth, with countless tales of them stealing souls or performing other demonic deeds. Indeed, they are believed by many to be demons, though in truth they are only one of many creatures that are only half-fiend. A black eyes is usually the result from the mating of an elf with one or more demons, but over millennia these long-lived creatures have interbred with each other and formed something that might resemble a race in its own right.


True to its name, any black eyes has trouble fitting into normal society unless its eyes remain hidden. A knowledgeable person who sees the tell-tell black eyes will often ostracize the creature as the demon it is, while those not in the know will fear them as monsters. Consequently, any black eyes tend to either be a hermit or live a meagre lifestyle in the slums of a larger city. The races' scarcity and secretive makes villages of them quite uncommon, which is only fueled by the relative dislike black eyes have for each other.
