I see the shadow beings too, so does my family, friends and a lot of people I ask.
I'm wondering if they're dead people who lived a life of wanting more and more and that it didn't stop when they died.
I don't know what they are.

Would you consider their dependence on certan hosts kind of like a human's dependence on a lover or just attention in general? Do you think it is hard for them to admit that they need to move on and find someone else who can give them what they desire?
Do you think that underneath their drone-like behavior, that they have the potential to become positive and independent beings, capable of love and remorse and giving back as much as they take?
Or are they forever damned to a parasitic existence?

I'm going to contribute a little to this thread. Since I'm Danish I am able to translate Norwegian, it's very close to Danish.
I am trying my best translating to English
I found some interesting reading on the Norwegian wikipedia, translated:
De underjordiske er vetter og åndevesener som ifølge nordisk folketro lever under jorda eller i naturen som usynlige skapninger ved siden av menneskene, ofte nær gårder og setre.
Underground vetters (sometimes called hulde, huldrefolk, haugfolk, troll and tusser) and spirit beings who according to northern popular lore lives under the earth or in the nature as invisible beings besides the humans - often in proximity of farms or similar.
Hulder er i norsk folketro og sagn en kvinnelig vette eller underjordisk skapning som bor i haugene, men kan vise seg som ei vakker ungjente med kuhale. Hulder eller huldrefolk er også en av flere norske fellesbetegnelser på andre haugfolk og tusser som oppholder seg i naturen eller det hinsidige.
Ordet «hulder» er avledet av det gammelnorske verbet hylja, som betyr «å skjule». Norsk hulder tilsvarer også svensk vittra og skogsrå.
Huldre's are in Norwegian popular lore a female underground being or just underground being living in and by heaps or caves. The huldre The Hulder's are sometimes also referred to as beings living in the nature or the divine.
The word «hulder» is an old verb that means "to be hiding".
Huldrefolkene opptrer som regel i en tilstand hvor de er usynlige for oss mennesker. Deres verden er som et speilbilde av vår egen, men deres okser og kyr fremstilles gjerne som større og flottere enn menneskenes husdyr. I blant heter det at vi deler alt med huldrefolkene, og at disse bruker setrene i vinterhalvåret, andre ganger beskrives de som underjordiske, som har sine gårder anlagt under menneskenes. Her kan det oppstå tvister ved at menneskene bygger fjøs over stua til huldrekallen slik at det renner kumøkk ned til dem. Uansett oppholder de seg i en verden som er parallell til vår egen.
The Hulder's or Huldre-people are almost always invisible to humans. Their world is like a mirror image to our world (parallel world), but their livestock are imaged like being bigger and better than humans livestock. It is said that our world share everything with the Huldre-people. They live underground.
Akvarellen «Huldra forsvant» av den norske eventyrtegneren Theodor Kittelsen (1857-1914), viser huldra som lokker en ung mann ut på ei myr.
The image (called Huldra disappered) shows a young man being lured into the fog by the Huldre-people.
I will be posting more if I find anything interesting

The first time I heard one of these things walking on the roof, was in about 2002, when the roof of my flat/apartment at that time had a flat tin roof. I'd wake up in the middle of the night, seeming to hear a man walking around up there. But I'd visualise the area all around the roof, and couldn't see how anyone could get up there, or, jump down without making any noise at all. The footsteps were so bold, loud and confident, I'd just lie there with my covers up to my chin thinking, well, there's no way I'm going out there to investigate! It happened many times. I used to wrack my brains trying to figure out what exactly it was. The creepiest thing is moving a couple of blocks away and to have it happening here now. And when I visited a friend far away, on the second night of my visit, it happened there, too. I do NOT like the idea that it's following me around. I feel I know what it is now, a shadowman, and am very curious to know what a good clairvoyant would say about it. I'm very curious, full stop. What IS this thing? Check out these stories.
