About

The lowliest of the dark folk, the dark servants are also the most numerous. They cover their skin completely to shield it from even a single mote of light. Dark servants are without empathy and prefer the company of other dark folk. Murderous and cruel, they have difficulty interacting with non-dark folk for long.
