The Relinquished[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Their bodies are made of hard, shell-like material. In the center, each one has a hole, which sucks in creatures and assimilates them into the protective shield located behind its head. The shield can be lowered over the main body with the assimilated creature being stuck in the shield. Any creature stuck in the shield can attack and speak by the Relinquished's will. Their bodies are mostly blue, with hard white accents. Their hands have sharp claws, which can be used to slash as an unarmed strike. Their one eye bulges out from just above their hole. Instead of legs, Relinquished have what looks like a top sticking out of the bottom and sides of the assimilation hole. These enable a Relinquished to float gently above ground. When a creature is stuck in their shield, any pain or damage they would feel is first dealt to whatever creature they assimilated.


Very little history is known about the Relinquished. They have seemingly always existed, and are never known to be major contributors to society. The majority of people who meet a Relinquished becomes assimilated seconds later, unless they kill it. Ancient texts have been discovered that tell of a few ambitious relinquished, who have tried to conquer the world, but so far, they have ultimately failed.


The Relinquished are an extremely rare race that will never be found in forests. Instead, they lurk deep under highly protected places, lurking in dungeons under castles, or perhaps catacombs. All language aside from common is lost to them, unless they assimilate a creature that can speak another language. Even then, as soon as the creature is digested, they forget whatever language they could temporarily speak. The Relinquished are heartless beings that live only to satiate their hunger, and are not afraid to consume even the most powerful of foes.
