Serpentine shapeshifters from Shinan created by the Thitan Haluthan. They look humani, but can transition between Humani and a serpentine form and a third transitional form that is part serpent and part humani. They tend to be extreme reclusive and solitary. Since Ilushan put part of himself into their creation, they are able to use magic. They are outcasts in Shinan and there is a bounty on their heads, so they are heavily persecuted. Sakamati is a name the Shi'in have given them, amongst themselves they are known as the Ophione.
