Neverborn Malfeans have almost god-like powers and are potentially the most destructive beings in existence. Thankfully, most of them remained asleep deep in the Labyrinth through most of history, waiting for Oblivion to consume everything; they controlled their Spectres and worshippers through dreams and the powers of the Hive-Mind. How they came into existence was unknown, and they were thought to have simply been around since the creation of the world. For many wraiths, there was nothing more powerful or more feared until the destruction brought around by the Sixth Great Maelstrom.
Terrifyingly, a force greater than the Neverborn was discovered in Orpheus: the primal being called Grandmother. As it was revealed, Grandmother is the "mother" of the Neverborn, making them an ancient and especially powerful type of Sparagmoi. She became determined to devour her own children. For the first time in history, the Neverborn became almost active, attempting to thwart their mother's plans. Although less powerful, the Neverborn had the advantage that they were not blocked by the Tempest like Grandmother, and managed to raise armies by both spawning their own Spectres and "recruiting" from the world above. The helpfulness of their involvement is questionable, however, seeing as they destroy almost as much as they attempt to save.
