Spectres are beings that manifest the natural change that all things have to endure- that all falls to dust, that everything crumbles and all fall apart. The transitional process of death is one of the great existential mysteries of the universe — a puzzle that many Moros spend a lifetime trying to solve. While the Spectres of Stygia may not have all of the answers, the study of them is, at the very least, a good place to begin.
Specters can take many forms. They may manifest as pale, indistinct, ghostly figures or ever-shifting, shadowy creatures of darkness. A Specter may reveal itself as a being resembling various cultural personifications of death, a Grim Reaper figure or an “Angel of death.” Others prefer the forms of creatures associated with death and decay in folklore and the natural world: carrion birds, flies or maggots, crows, or black dogs. Some take the shape of the dead in various stages of decay.
