Creatures and beings of unfathomable power and chaos. These beings have been called by many names over the years; the Old Ones, Eldritichians, Outsiders, but most commonly and consistently the Interlopers. Originating from a different reality, it is unclear when, or why, these creatures seek out all of those with mana fonts and consume them. Their passage into Esteirn's reality was stopped by the Divine Pantheon, but that blockade has slowly been degrading over time...
Beast of the Deep
Known destroyer of the Golden Age, the Beast slipped through the cracks of reality between Esterin and the realms beyond. Although Lena’s harsh actions stopped any further creatures of its magnitude from reigning havoc on the planet, it’s children and turned Branded still roam free. The Beast has not been active for centuries, and some scholars assume it has died due to being cut off from its host reality.
