Shadowsouls Fluff:
The man of darkness, the darkest creation of the gods. beings of pure evil.
Shadowsouls are usually slim and quick, rather using magic and speed over brute strength, they live forever, so they have the potential to learn more then anyone, but lack the will.
Shadowsouls are never good, and never lawful. they all stick to themselves first, that is how they are created.

Usually pale skinned, dark hair and with black or gray eyes, they mingle with not too much trouble in human crowd, but they never have the will to join them.
At a first glace, they are humans, same highet, same weight. one might notice that they never seem to age over 20's. and actually their body indeed stop to change at adulthood age of 20. On the other hand they cannot naturally breed, (while fully equipped for it, the process will always fail.) and new shadowsouls are created only by soul transforming or spontaneity creating on the plane of shadowsoul.

Shadowsouls have bad relations with all races, and aside personal friends they will at best attempt to avoid contact with anyone, including other shadowsouls. and at worse attempt to kill them.

Shadowsouls have grater insight on the structure of the world, leading them to often be atheists, they see deities as nothing more then powerful beings, that can be defeated and would eventually be.

The common shadowsoul will talk in both common and soulspeech. but he will avoid other languages, even common is only because soulspeech is limited to shadowsouls alone.

Immortal Soul: a shadowsoul cannot be slain. any "kill" or "slay" effect only reducece him to -9 hp. in case he is on -9 he disappears tow rounds and banished back to the plane of shadowsoul. the only exception to this rule is force damage, that is capable of lowering his HP to under -9, thus killing him.
