Physical Description[edit]

Hylotl by Astral-Requin

Very few wisps exist in the multiverse and all known wisps were created by The Corrector. Wisps are bits, fragments, or sometimes even whole souls that TC creates a body for. This body is smaller than an average human and much lighter. Their skin is pale, thin, and smooth, and their eyes are small and beady with black sclera. Wisps aren’t perfect humanoid replicas so they often have one or two abnormal bodily quirks such as free flowing hair or an incredibly long tongue. Each wisp has a wisp color, which is just the color of their wisp-like fiery soul. This color is reflected in their loose soul feature as well as in their fire spells and eyes.
