Description[]

Whether lost souls desperate to secure their rest or the lingering energy of powerful magicians, these spirits are mere shadows of the lives they once lived. However, should they linger long enough or find purchase on a source of dark power, these shades evolve into more formidable foes. Slay them quickly–or suffer their wrath.
