Nightwalkers are the most commonly encountered type of nightshades.[1]

Appearance

Nightwalkers in action on the field of battle.

The nightwalker is a night-black giant with demonic features, including a huge pair of ram-like horns and arms that end in massive blades. A nightwalker is 20 feet tall and weighs 5,000 pounds.[1]

Ecology

Nightwalkers lead armies of undead against the living. Unlike mortal generals, nightwalkers prefer to take part in battles rather than observing them from afar in safety, unless the battles are deemed by the nightwalker as self-destructive. This does not mean that the nightwalker never sacrifices its troops to gain a tactical advantage. Nightwalkers enjoy inflicting despair before death, particularly by destroying valued objects or murdering loved ones before finishing the foe off.[1]
