Types

Malignant

Malignants are spirits of dead mortals. Usually, the soul of a mortal will go to the respective underworld of their culture or belief, and eventually fade away. However, certain souls of immense willpower or hatred can hold on, and will themselves into remaining among the living. This comes at a price, however. What is left of the soul is a jaded, bitter thing, with a burning hatred and jealousy for the living. These demented spirits usually manifest at the edge of the realms, where magic flows the strongest.[1]
