The Death Knight Chronicles
Ilosta – or Unbirthed – is the name of the creatures which emerged in Antikthon when Elazar cracked the Veil. Their name comes from the fact that the first Ilosta formed from the Libatic energies themselves, and were thus never born. A race of sentient humanoids, the Ilosta are alive, but souless. As the dead world lacked life beforehand, the first Ilosta drew sustinence from the souls of the dead which populate Antikthon. The race has not lost that habit; and have since become a race of souless barbarians; the scourge of all civilization in the dead world.
