These doyens of the dark arts are said to be as dangerous as they are mysterious. They practice a form of shadow magic so old and so powerful that even most other shadow casters tremble in their presence. There are legends that these sinister sages are older than the very islands on which they live. While other, more outlandish tales, describe them as the ones who created the night itself.
Mouse ID#: 1051
