Dindu

The Dindu (A term coined by the first Emperor of Dunzelheit that literally means “shadow-walker”) are a race of shadow-like creatures that primarily inhabit the Empire of Dunzelheit. The exact origins of the Dindu are unknown, and no one seems to know exactly how a Dindu is born or even created. In fact, even the Dindu themselves have no knowledge of their births, past, or heritage except for what they are told and a few fading memories of their first experiences as a Dindu.

The mages and scholars of the world, as a result, have developed a number of theories as to what the Dindu truly are (and many, in fact, believe that the Dindu are either some form of Undead or a living imprint of a traumatic event), but there is no mage or scholar alive that knows for sure.
