Shatterhorns are detested beings born within the void, filled with malice and a hunger for Sordane’s magic. Little is truly known about these voidlings; some scholars have theorized that they were originally demons trapped within the void when Sordane was first split off from the rest of creation, while others believe based on their humanoid appearance that they were born from the first people foolish enough to breach the barrier. Whatever creatures they originally were, the shatterhorns’ form has been twisted by the void, turning their skin to a dull, stone-like gray, with brilliant purple veins running through it. The shatterhorns gained their name owing to the deadly needle-like horns growing from their head and chest, which they will shatter at the root to use as weapons.
Since shatterhorns are creatures of the void, there is little research on them available, especially because their bodies disintegrate once slain, leaving behind only their horns. What information is available is that these voidlings are extremely aggressive and can manipulate the gravity around themselves, allowing them to fly. Lone shatterhorns have been known to attack fully armed airships—aggressive to the point of being suicidal. When a group of shatterhorns is gathered there are reports of them bringing down ships as large as cruisers. To prevent the potential damage that these creatures can cause, many institutions such as Ezdin’s Guild of the Heart have tasked adventurers and monster hunters with capturing these voidlings so that they can study them.
As long as a shatterhorn has a steady source of food, it can endlessly regenerate its dagger-like horns, which it breaks off to impale its prey with. To the uneducated it would appear like the shatterhorn was just using these as simple weapons, but these horns are still connected to the creature and can drain a victim’s life force. In addition to this, the shatterhorn can exert its natural control of gravity over a target impaled with its horn, allowing it to drastically slow a creature, making it easier to capture and kill.
