Strider

While they are better sorcerers, the Faceless do not possess the physical might and battle prowess of their archenemies, the Angels. To even the odds, and because ruse and deception are not always a viable option, the Faceless have created the Striders. These “living armours”, made of Shadowsteel, are not dissimilar, in principle, to Wizards’ constructs like Golems or Gargoyles.

Kaspar's Comment

“Some say Striders are actually grown from the very blood of the Faceless. As if they weren’t creepy enough.”


Construct

Like all Constructs, Striders are animated by magic, and therefore not alive. They are immune to poison, blindness, mind effects and morale effects. They cannot be healed or resurrected.

Immune to Darkness

Damage and negative effects of Dark spells have no effect on this creature.

Soulless

The Soulless are possessed by the essence of a Faceless puppeteer, who controls it from the shadows. While capable of standing their own in a fight, their main role is actually to disrupt and negate the enemy’s magic.

Kaspar's Comment

“Most of the time, that enemy was none other than the Angels of Elrath, which is why the Soulless are especially efficient against the powers of the Light.”

Heart of Darkness

The powerful Dark Magic at the heart of the Soulless makes nearby allies resistant to Light and nearby enemies vulnerable to Darkness.
