Sketch - The Gloom

The Gloom

"Desperately melancholic beings, the Gloom survive by feeding off the emotions of others. They float between both the physical and spectral world, paddling through unseen currents with their long staves. It is unknown at present if the masks they wear, which come in a variety of designs and materials, are masks at all. Attracted to merriment and joy, the Gloom are the primary reason for the kingdom wide outlawing of events and gathering promoting such behaviour."



  1. Neat concept. The mask is an interesting departure from the standard hooded-undead where no face of any sort is visible.

    1. I'm not quite sure the Gloom are undead. Ethereal definitely. I imagine them more as creatures from another plane of existence, brought forth by the currents of ancient power that run across the world they frequent. Part of something altogether darker I think. I'm glad you like them. Don't let them know though....
