From the deep bowels of the [[City of Regalia]], to even the shallow countryside graves centuries old, the Deathlings came to the surface with only one thought in mind: Conquest.

Deathlings were first encountered on the battlefield of Torse in the form of the Midnight Court. Some months after the first encounter, the Midnight Court used vile magics to cast a spell over Regalia, summoning the Deathlings and creating a whole army of quasi-undead to enforce the rule of their Dark Queen, Freya Lo.

Curiously enough, no Deathlings were reported to have risen in any of the Archipelago lands, but the numbers of Deathlings in the Imperial City itself was sufficient enough to perform a complete coup and place the city in the hands of the Deathling menace. The Deathling Menace successfully occupied the Imperial City itself for sveeral weeks, though the outlying countryside was still relatively in control of the Regalian Government. Eventually, a massive assault (following a smaller, failed one) breached the city and began the end of the [[Deathling Crisis]]. Freya Lo was ultimately stabbed by her daughter near the end of the assault, which caused all Deathlings in Aloria to collapse into dust just as she did. Within but a few months of their first emergence, all Deathlings were dead, with no remains left behind to examine for the scholars of [[Aloria]].

One would believe a person who has been dead for many years to resemble nothing more than a shambling corpse. However, the person that is a Deathling is not actually the corpse standing, but rather a reflection of the corpse. Vile magics that have not been seen or felt in Aloria since the days of the Seraph were used to create a distant echo of a past life, an incomplete copywith its own flaws and disabilities. Deathlings were, physically, an almost exact copy of their former self when they were alive. Freya Lo for example looks exactly the same as she did before she died, and dresses the same, though her physical characteristics look somewhat different. The first observable difference is the skin tone. Whereas her skin was pinkish before, it is now an icy light gray or white color. The second major difference is that her hair, dark brown before, is now a pure raven black. The final difference were the eyes. Before a warm brown, now the eye whites having turned gray and the pupil an eerie luminescent light blue. In fact, in darkness, these eyes appear to dance like two small blue flames. These physical characteristics were the same over all Deathlings regardless of their original skin-tone, hair, or eye colors. This also happens across species, meaning even Deathling Orcs have the same traits. For those furred races, their fur would turn the same color as the skin-tone of the more Humanoid Deathlings.

Deathlings, despite some keeping up a contrary pretense, were inherently vile creatures. They were copies of their former selves cast in the service of the Bone Horror Invasion.

Some important memories may be missing, some kind personality traits may be missing.

A Deathling may attempt to rekindle old friendships with the still-living, only to turn on them when they least expect it and stab them in the back for their perceived betrayal when they died. This pure hatred for their death persists even in the Deathlings who in their previous lives died of natural causes. Even small events that made the original living person sad or feel lost, were twisted and corrupted in the mind of the Deathling to be reasons for revenge. Curiously enough, Deathlings have some form of hierarchy. Common Deathlings were all subject to the Captain Deathlings. The Captain Deathlings have taken over the Violet Order Commander positions. But any and all Deathlings answer to their Dark Queen, Freya Lo. Any order issued by Freya Lo cannot be resisted by Deathlings, nor do they wish to resist it, for it is the will of their Queen.

From the deep bowels of the City of Regalia, to even the shallow countryside graves centuries old, the Deathlings came to the surface with only one thought in mind: Conquest. Deathlings were Undead, but not in the traditional sense. They were resurrected as a distant shell or echo from the past, not quite the person they used to be, and certainly more twisted than before. The first Deathlings were the Midnight Court created by the Statue of Estel in Torse. Since then, it is believed that the Midnight Court was responsible for the Bone Horror Invasion across the world, and later, for the rising of the Deathlings in Regalia. The exact long-term intent of the Deathlings was unclear. However, what is certain is that the political instability they unleashed was real and that all Deathlings disintegrated into dust when Freya Lo died and order was restored to Regalia.

History

Deathlings have the same signature look.

Deathlings were first encountered on the battlefield of Torse in the form of the Midnight Court. Some months after the first encounter, the Midnight Court used vile magics to cast a spell over Regalia, summoning the Deathlings and creating a whole army of quasi-undead to enforce the rule of their Dark Queen, Freya Lo. The exact purpose or intent of the Deathlings is unclear, and will remain so, though they were definitely vicious and evil with their daily dealings. The official arrival of the Deathlings in Regalia was heralded by a speech at the Regalian Cathedral by the Dark Queen, after which the hordes of Deathlings fanned out over the city, killing guard after guard to seize control of the Empire’s capital. Curiously enough, no Deathlings were reported to have risen in any of the Archipelago lands, but the numbers of Deathlings in the Imperial City itself was sufficient enough to perform a complete coup and place the city in the hands of the Deathling menace. The Deathling Menace successfully occupied the Imperial City itself for sveeral weeks, though the outlying countryside was still relatively in control of the Regalian Government. Eventually, a massive assault (following a smaller, failed one) breached the city and began the end of the Deathling Crisis. Freya Lo was ultimately stabbed by her daughter near the end of the assault, which caused all Deathlings in Aloria to collapse into dust just as she did. Within but a few months of their first emergence, all Deathlings were dead, with no remains left behind to examine for the scholars of Aloria.

Physical Characteristics

The Deathling Queen, Freya Lo.

One would believe a person who was dead for many years to resemble nothing more than a shambling corpse. However, Deathlings were not living corpses, but rather a reflection of the corpse. Vile magics that have not been seen or felt in Aloria since the days of the Seraph were used to create a distant echo of a past life, an incomplete copy with its own flaws and disabilities. Deathlings were, physically, an almost exact copy of their former self when they were alive. Freya Lo, for example, looked exactly the same as she did before she died, and dressed the same, though there were color palette differences. The first observable difference was the skin tone, as all Deathlings possessed light gray or white hue. The second major difference was in hair color, as all Deathlings had black hair. The final difference was the eyes, where eye whites turned gray and the pupil an eerie luminescent light blue. In fact, in darkness, those eyes appeared to dance like two small blue flames. These physical characteristics were the same over all Deathlings regardless of their original skin-tone, hair, or eye colors. This also happens across Races, meaning even Deathling Orcs had the same traits as Deathling Songaskians and other Humans. For those furred Races, their fur turned the same color as the Deathing skin-tone.

Mental Characteristics

Deathlings, despite some keeping up a contrary pretense, were inherently vile creatures. Deathlings possessed the vast majority of the original person’s memories and personality traits, but some things could be off. Some important memories were often missing in the resurrected alongside some of their personality traits. While Deathlings were not incapable of kindness, their personality was often a cold reflection of what it used to be, one focussed on revenge against whatever they deemed the reason for their demise, and in some cases an even viler personality taking hold in individuals who were already terrible. Deathlings were inherently cold, vengeful, uncaring, obsessive and reveled in pain and violence. Deathlings sometimes attempted to rekindle old friendships with the still-living, only to turn on them when they least expected it and stab them in the back for their perceived betrayal when they died. This pure hatred for their death persisted even in the Deathlings who in their previous lives died of natural causes. Even small events that made the original living person sad or feel lost were twisted and corrupted in the mind of the Deathling to be reasons for revenge against the living. Curiously enough, Deathlings had some form of internalized hierarchy. Common Deathlings were all subject to the Captain Deathlings, who reported directly to the Dark Queen Freya Lo. Additionally, any order issued by Freya Lo was not resisted by Deathlings, even if they wanted to, due to an innate will to obey her.
