The Navarada are an ancient race of supernatural origin.

Physical Description[edit]

The Navarada in their pure form appear as almost a black spot in any non-supernatural beings eye but to a supernatural being, they are seen as a warped humanoid figure which is normally disproportionate to its distance away from where it really is. The Navarada's true form is very fragile even though powerful so it drains a creature of its life force, normally humanoid, and becomes the new host of its newly acquired form of which is then protected by the life force of the creatures own life force. The Navarada are seen to be genderless at first sight but upon closer inspection, the male's are seen to be darker and more condensed whereas the female version is seen to be more floaty and spread out like a fog. Height and weight cannot be measured since it varies from host body to host body.


The Navarada are an ancient race of supernatural origins that were alive well before man's discovery of fire. They would lurk in the shadows in order to potentially stalk their prey or to rest. Their true origin of where they have come from is unknown to all but themselves and to them, it is considered their race's greatest secret of which they only tell upon death to their closest and most trustful non-Navaradian companion; upon hearing this the non-Navaradian's life is normally shortened by the fact that the Navaradian council of elders sends out their best agents of darkness known as the Vanesha, the most deadly of their entire dark army. The first sighting of the Navarada was when a human noticed that he had two shadows, later that evening the Navarada consumed that human of its life force and became the host of their body. Then the sightings became more frequent over time until the Navarada became more intelligent and began hiding their killings by only taking the life force of the near dead while they're sleeping. This was also around the time where the Navaradadian council of elders was formed to place laws of consumption into the everyday lives of the Navarada.To this day the council monitor all of the Navarada consumption rates and have put in place great fasts and gigantic feasts every one to two years to ensure the survival of species or keep the population of more destructive races such as the orcs under control. Upon rare occasion a Navarada can be born through a failed banish spell if enough necrotic magic is absorbed in the ethereal state.


The Navarada normally keep secluded to a small pack of either related Navarada or closely bonded but can be summoned with great patriotism to their kind by the council by the summoning of a blood moon or an eclipse.
