Background of the Entities
The Entities, also called ‘Them’, are an ancient group of beings who inhabited the world long before any of the recognized races, angels, demons and devils included.
Currently in existence there are six groups of Entities, each group with around four members. The six groups represent all the Elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Light and Shadow) and harbour massive power in the Element they hold. Holding no physical form, they reside inside gemstones, artefacts and specific people to carry out their ‘lives’. Occasionally, a group of Entities will get trapped inside their chosen residence and await someone/something to release them.
Though there are four Entities per group, they function in a collective mind, making their combined power a truly devastating force. This ‘group mind’ can be detected easily if they possess someone, as they’re unused to physical forms leading to halting speech, jerky movement and references to a group like ‘us’, ‘we’ and ‘our’. If someone seeks to drive them from a possessed persons mind, they’ll meet with a, near impenetrable, mental barrier and offensive mind probing. The latter only happens if a warning is not heeded, and even then, they will withdraw after causing pain and delivering a more firm warning.
Currently, only the locations of two groups of Entities are known… The Fire Entities, which reside inside an amulet in Nia Wolfe’s possession and the Earthen Entities, which vary between residing inside a pendant or the wearer of the pendant, Wyl.
The Earthen Entities are volatile, with only a small grip on rationality, possessing Wyl for a time after he released them by mistake and only becoming ‘complaisant’ after brokering a deal with him. The deal was; that after Wyl died, or became injured to an extent that he would never recover, the Entities would be let loose….Probably causing havoc in the world.
After many issues between Wyl and the Entities, they finally took over him. They would only let Wyl return if he built them a body of their own...the agreement was made as was the statue soon after..
The Entities are no longer part of Wyl's life, and now roam the depths of the Forests.
