Ravenous Corpse

Ravenous Corpse (Daevar)

A Daevar (the elven name for a Ravenous Corpse) is a long dead corpse possessed by a spirit from the Between. These spirits have spent so long between worlds that their sole desire is to feed when they enter Uteria.


Often they inhabit long dead and skeletal bodies, the common feature being a long pointed tongue which seems to grow from whatever rotting flesh is left on the body.


They are fast moving, and have an ability to cause the area around them to seem darker, as if ink forms in the air around it. Its claws and bite cause paralysis in most victims, which allows it to begin to feast on the flesh. It is not particular, any living being is a suitable victim to this horrific unnatural hunter.
