The Shadar Kai are a humanoid race that originate from the Shadowfel. They typically have ashen skin, raven-black eyes, tattoos, scarifications, and piercings. Common hairstyles include long & loose, braids, and elaborately shaved heads. Many shadar-kai worship and serve the Raven Queen, the goddess of death, due in part to their philosophy on death, that it is foretold at birth and cannot be avoided. There are two Shadar-Kai factions within the City, The Black Market and The Foreshadow.
