Dark Abberation[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Dark Aberrations are tall faceless beings made of a sludge like black essence.They have very long arms and walk bent over with their arms hanging. A Dark Aberration's voice is low, throaty and emotionless.


Most Dark Aberrations are created to serve other powerful magic users such as Witches or Wizards. On the other hand, some have been known to appear naturally due to large magic oriented events. These natural born Dark Aberrations have their own conscience and act more like humans than servants.


Dark Aberrations that serve act and are treated like subhuman servants, which are barely acknowledged by society. Natural born Dark Aberrations often wander the world either on a personal quest or to find a place where they can live a normal life.

Race Names[edit]

Dark Aberrations who serve other magic users are often unnamed, or have names given to them by their masters. Natural born Dark Aberrations often name themselves.
