Dredbats are quite useful to us. We make them just like stoneborn, but they lack their same... intelligence. With very little direction, they strike fear into stubborn soul's hearts.
With the anima drought, our dominion over them has waned. One, Duskterror, has wreaked the most havoc.
This presents us with an opportunity. Take this soul and draw her in. When she's weak, we can capture her for our own purposes.
