The Shadow Lands
Fauna & Flora
Both flora and fauna on Celenia seems to come in three major forms: Natural, Corrupted and Shadow. The natural fauna is many times notably larger and more aggressive than Arjin fauna, and the plants seem to have followed suit, with an unusual amount of large, carnivorous plants dotting the landscape. The animals on the continent don't seem to differ that much from Arjin, having roughly similar biological spread and similar food chains. The corrupted lifeforms are similar to their natural brethren, but have grown darker pigmentation, elongated teeth, fangs, claws and some have even grown spikes on their bodies. They are all genuinely evil and hostile to anything and everything around them. They seem utterly mad and impossible to tame. Many of them have gained new abilities as well, some almost supernatural. One instance would be the Nightmare Fox. Seemingly a normal fox, whose fur has grown darkish blue and purple with glowing red eyes, large fangs and lethal claws. The nightmare foxes hunt by drawing upon the lifeforce of other beings, simply by projecting an aura of dread, horror and madness around it, relatively rapidly driving every sentient being in an area around it stark raving mad. Most victims of the nightmare fox will end their own life given enough time, but if not, they will simply drop dead when the fox has finished feeding on their energies. The final form of life on Celenia is the Shadow Beasts, the Shadow Demons or simply Demons. These monsters do not seem to stem from this world at all, and are generally found in and near the ruins of the old civilization, as well as in the corrupted zones. They are often large, strong, swift and wholly alien to everything else. They are sort of insect like in appearance, having a tough exoskeleton protecting them, sharp claws and mandibles. Other variants are clearly insect like, being larvae or maggotlike in appearance. These beasts are cunning and dangerous and very few have faced a shadow demon and survive to tell the tale.
Celenia is rich in forests and arable land. The mountains are also rich in various minerals and rock types useful for construction.
