Back to Sentient Beings
Less a true race and more a classification of what might well be a culture, Kalashtar refers to a small but growing number of dangerous criminals in the Converged world. Psychics and anyone else able to perceive the Psionic Energy Field are swiftly coming to fear the wrath of the Kalashtar, for they react with deadly, psychotic rage at the slightest emanation of psionic power from any who are not among their number. Even more chillingly, rare whispers from the former friends and loved ones of these strange killers tell that they were once ordinary people who began, one fateful night, to hear dark whispers in their dreams… whispers of power, and majesty, and dominion over the minds of lesser men. One day, the soon-to-be Kalashtar simply disappeared from their home and vanished completely — until their return as a possessed psychic enforcer for an unknowable terror.
