Fearlings are lesser demons in service of a Fear demon. They take the form of the viewer's fear.

Fearlings are manifestations of our anxieties and deepest fears. Born in the Fade, they are simple spirits that occasionally slip into the waking world where the Veil is thin.

Background Edit

"When Lieutenant Herve cut one in half, he started screaming about an imagined fire, The Templar with us waded in, looking for Mages who were not there. The second my sword pierced a fearling's flesh, I became consumed by thoughts of disappointing my mother. I told everyone I saw a Dragon."

-Letter from Lady Losaneta, a decorated Chevalier in the Blessed Age.
