Women cry at sight of the wraith,
Children hide from the ghoul's hate
Men will race home as time cannot wait,
Families will be mangled if they're late.
A variation of the demon sub-species known as Nihilin, entities created from the negative energy absorbed by an unknown life-giving power. The wraiths are a common wandering Nihilin, known for their nasty habit of visiting towns at late night fall, looking for open doors to invade and families to slaughter.
They're the simplest form of Nihilin, but otherwise, still difficult to fend off; the creatures are made up of pure black magic, hence no mortal weapon seems to work on them and only powerful magic can harm them. They are, however, some precautions that any Oooians can take to avoid a Wraith's attack: red sands lined in front of every opening of a house lingers them away, as well as garlic spice and red chalk. They also cannot stand bright light as it can burn them; though, it's best not to use fire-light, as such lighting are very easy for them to kill off using their powers.
The wraiths are known to possess many abilities: records had them to be capable of moving into shadows and travel by them. They're very loud creatures once they attack, meaning to frighten their victims in hopes of weakening them
, and vicious enough to thrash and maul their prey to death. The wraiths are also lone attackers and, though they travel in groups, they prefer attack a single household by themselves and escape if they felt out-numbered.
Records of their attacks are mostly around locations nearby swamps or those that barely get enough sunlight. They seem to be clever enough not to attack kingdoms that are too modernize as electric light is difficult for them to handle or destroy. Their favorite targets are either fatherless families, or those with their fathers are out, as they see them to be the most exciting kill to make.
((Had I told you I was venting for a long time? Yeah, I can be a scary dude if disappointed or troubled. Anywho, here's another demon for my Nihilin Mythos, and there's plenty more to come around~
And don't worry, I have a good reason, other than expressing myself, to have these guys around. You'll see soon...))
