Aetherborn spontaneously came into being on Kaladesh as a byproduct of the aether refinement process. Their bodies are in constant flux, as the aether residue they’re made of gradually dissolves and is reclaimed by the aethersphere. Thus, their lives are short. But rather than despair, they savor each fleeting moment, squeezing out every last drop of enjoyment.
Some Aetherborn, referred to as the “gifted”, can draw life essence from other beings into themselves to prolong their own existence.
