Dry

A desert-dwelling people, the dry are desiccated and withered, with leathery skin stretched across gaunt frames. When they have hair, it is thin and wispy, and their voices are raspy. Emerging only at night, the dry capture any who are foolish enough to be caught in their territory and sacrifice these prisoners in dark rituals. When they capture people wandering the desert, the dry carve accounts of the murder into their victims’ flesh and then ritualistically sacrifice the captives, forcing the deceased ones’ souls to deliver the reminders to the underworld.
