Their tonges end in a barbed appendage, which can be lashed out to about a foot in distance, before penetrating the skull of their victims; this allows them to absorb the victim’s memories and souls, leaving only a wizened husk. Although, they are able to shape-shift without killing targets, females Wraiths prefer to do so when stealing someone’s identity, and the trapped souls remain cognizant within the Weaiths. Male Wraiths apparently resemble females, but ashamed of their true form, normally appear in their transitory form, a white, semi-featureless humanoid body. Used to a gravity 1.7 times Earth’s, and a cold, ash-filled atmosphere with low oxygen content, Wraiths are naturally stronger and harder than humans; their young mature quickly, and they can live for an unspecified number of centuries. All Wraiths possess a natural aptitude for magic, although the females are generally more adept. The average height of the Wraiths is 5’5”. Their average weight is 200 lbs., and their eyes are generally yellow, most Wraiths’ skin is naturally red in color, however all these stats vary when their shape-shifting abilities are in use.
