The tribe this spirit is from is unknown to the Linderen world, but most wizards theorize them to come sometime deep in the past.
They appear most often a red skinned man with an axe, slowly creeping up on unsuspecting people. Most often for some reason these spirits inhabit forest hotels and plague and haunt the owners of a given establishment.
Young girls who essentially act as vampire sex slaves. And are caught in inter-planer travel as birth is a magical act. These creature-whores systematize the sex act for money or personal gain, or the gain of their tribe.
Goldens have no original facial features whatsoever and if they appear to, it is the face of someone they consumed.
Musical instruments that developed consciousness and turned into polymorphing humanoids.
Marquins are traditionally musical instruments that cannot talk but play their music as a type of communication. It is only recently that they have mutated into people who can morph between the two states.
Water nymph. Hyper sexual race of fountain spring dwellers, usually of the Nymphen woods.
Naiades are able to travel through water of any kind and shape shift to make it through any crevice or hole. They mostly do magic and breed, as they are able to give birth without much pain, and their growth rate is only a few hours rather than years and years for other races.
Naiades are also able to generate magic through sex. Related to the Goldens, but not by decendancy or genetics: Goldens are Naiades who were turned undead through a lack of water or sex.
A nighttime creature that lives in the attics of homes. It consists only of a bumping head that has no body and travels by 'bumping' its way across a floor. Thus, someone observing an upstairs 'bump' would hear a heart beat like continual noise as if a single footstep repeating. This footstep gains speed as it osilates toward its next host. If the victim does get consumed by a bump, their head is imploded and 'absorbed' by the bump, who is the head of its last victim.

They are also the resting place of all missing children of Linderen in particular, little girls who died in bondage and slavery.
People who travel through mirrors. And dont always have any other existence.
The mirror travel is via the dead lands* as a conduit, though one can get trapped in it.
Donons can travel through space from literal point to point Transit to another mirror, or for inter-planer travel.
Note that if one encounters a mirror in the dead lands, unless one is a Donon or otherwise experienced wizard, one will encounter a random or tangled web of destinations.
Emaciated looking fairies who suck life or vital essence out of someone and spit it out as a night terror or desire. They also shed themselves like actual leaves and those leaves also shed fainter versions of themselves, and they all exist as effective ghosts, constantly chasing an identity they dont know how they lost. Each 'leaf' of a lemleaf, steals a specific memory from a PC and brings it back to them.
Also called 'Garnawins' by the common tongue. They are single plate monoliths related to Enulites, that cast inverted sunlight through their imprinted holes. These cookie cutter holes are objects in other planes and dimensions.
The love and rite of pain.
Lord of vast suicides, collecting the souls of those who took their own lives. The Suicide Lord also assists the suicidal subject with their own death. Such Lords of death experience their own suicide, that is, take their own lives every day, only to be resurrected in the following.
