A Ripper Nightmare compared to a Common Abyssal.
As opposed to darklings, abyssals are rather abstract and each one is highly unique, even the common and the striders, the only two ‘breeds’. They rest are completely different from one and another, even being so far at named. If not for their attacks on stars and constellations, the society of the golden age would be completely content in leaving these 'living sculptures’ in peace. Although the darklings and the abyssals are obviously not allies, the darklings have taken great advantages of the others presence and power and gorging themselves in on the fear the war has caused until they became a massive threat as they soon evolved into a power and hive mind themselves.
