Shadows are a form of incorporeal undead that resembles nothing more than their namesake. These wraith-like creatures exist to slay living beings, whom they hate and desire to feed upon. When a shadow touches a living creature it saps the strength of the being. Any living creature slain by a shadow rises as a shadow soon afterwards.

Shadows often travel in groups; hiding from the sun in the depths of the world or within ruins, crypts, and derelict ships.
