Ravenous wandering voids that linger in burned-down cities.
Embiar are typically subordinates to more destructive beings.

Instinct Category: Beast
Average lifespan - ~50 yrs
Alignment: Neutral
Gender - genderless

Signature abilities:

Pyromancy - can spit and manipulate the fire within their 'stomachs'

Embiar are long, slender beings made of ivory-gold
flames. Fire flickers from their eyes, hair and four
arms. Despite their appearance, they are not that hot -
though touching them would be unwise. Instead,
the hottest part of their bodies are their bloated
stomachs, which are split to form a gaping maw. Their legs are stubby
in comparison to the rest of their form.

Behaviour and Interactions:
If a town looks abandoned, but the houses still seem lit,
it may be taken-over by Embiar. They follow Corruptors
whose influence has driven a civilisation to collapse,
inhabiting the ghost-towns that remain. Any remains of mortal life
are crammed into their stomach-mouths, including survivors. Travellers will sometimes
mistake an invaded town for a normal town, never returning.
It is said that Embiar appear wherever Corruptors are
leaving. Some will use them as members of their
legions, before abandoning them in an ideal settlement.
