I have seen shadow creatures before (well, still do), and have thought of them as being arcane in nature. From my experiences, there are five
Type 1- A small "humanoid" figure, no more than two-three feet tall, devoid of any characteristics/physical appearances. Relatively, they appear
to be a mass (body) with a "head". They are confined to flat vertical surfaces, much like a shadow. Harmless, they are merely servants.
Type 2- More humanoid, they have body, defined head shape, and long thin arms. No legs. No visible details, still much a "shadow". Able to move
about on any flat surface, including ceilings, but are still confined to a flat surface which may hold their shape and size. Roughly 5-6 feet tall.
They are inquisitive, curious, but harmless (other than giving a fright to the unsuspecting).
Type 3- Similiar to Type 2, but with legs. NOT confined to flat surface like a shadow, has ability to crawl across objects. "Hands" and "feet"
must be in contact with solid objects, but body and head are above and off nay surfaces. They move about like geckos... they are also harmless, but
give off an atmosphere of something... more.
Type 4- Undefined gigantic shadowy mass. Free moving, able to move in three dimensions, off surfaces. Usually, they are not in contact with
surfaces. Large enough to fill a normal sized living or family room. Usually unseen, due to the fact that they appear in total darkness. Can do no
physical harm, but can cause great mental paranoia/fear. They also move in pacts. Bright light causes them to disappear.
Type 5- Not so much a shadow creature, more like a minor demon. Whereas types 1-4 are made of shadow-stuff (transluscant), the Type 5 are solid
blackness, though still without "depth". Defined physical outline of arms, fingers, legs and feet. Most appear in human form. They are able to
communicate, although they have no mouth or ears that are noticeable. They do, however, have eyes. The Type 1 shadow are the servants of these
Well, those are the shadow creatures I have seen. May or may not be related to those pictures (looks like from the movie "Darkness Falls" to me).
