Shadowspans were those souls who had been lost to the Nothing, their identities completely destroyed. They appeared either with a humanoid shape composed of inky black shadow, or as a nondescript human with no discernible facial features, just smooth featureless skin on its face. Used as spies, assassins, and saboteurs, they had no sense of self, so they could be completely suicidal and cared nothing for their own lives. If they were wounded, they bleeded black smoke, and when killed they collapsed and unraveled into incoherent shadow and drifting smoke. [1]

Greater Shadowspawns Edit

Sometimes the Nothing absorbed a stronger person, gaining the full range of the victim's memories, knowledge, and skill, allowing it to create a more powerful Shadowspawn. Most of them never reappear if they were killed. [1]
