The Dream Weavers
Strengths/PowersNightmares are dream demons. They can consume the life energy of mortals through their dreams, and this can result in the death of that person. Their fangs and inject a venom that can cause the victim to become immobile, hallucinate and even knock them unconscious. They can hide their identities by making people think they are seeing something other than a demon, such as a human woman or a small cat. When the Nightmare has found a target, they can access their dreams through the Mindscape and proceed to torture them with their worst nightmares, while also keeping them in a state of sleeping. This is more effective if she has captured the victim and brought them to her lair. As the nightmares continue the victim is drained of their life and die. It's said a nightmare's dreams feel real to the victim, to the point that the pain they suffer is vivid and visceral.
WeaknessesA Nightmares major weakness is the fact that she simply cannot do much harm to a waking person. While her powers keep the vicitim from waking up on their own, or realizing it's a dream, that doesn't stop other factors from forcefully waking the person up, which is why the Nightmare will kidnap and hide the victim. A nightmare is also vulnerable to someone who also has some sort of dream powers (A good example includes Marc Lee or his father Kyski Nuvari ) as a dream walker is already full concious in the Mindscape, and will not be effected by a nightmare's powers. And lastly like all demons, light magic and holy artifacts harm Nightmares, so those suspecting they have a Nightmare leeching off of them can wear light magic protection when they sleep.

HistoryThe history of Nightmares is vague and rather unknown. Some claim that a group of demons used to worship spiders and believed the spiders gave them their dream powers, and the stronger their powers became, the more spider-like they became. Another story, however, claims that Nightmares used to be actual sentient spiders that grew in size the more human life they consumed. The Nightmares themselves have purposefully left their origin vague and secretive, and when asked, all their stories are different, likely because they enjoy messing around with people.
