Verflucht Human

Verflucht Humans were once regular humans; however, a terrible curse has afflicted them. The curse caused them to lose some of their humanity, becoming less lively and achieving as a result of crumbling hopes and despair. Their curse, however, seems to sustain them to a degree as well as granting them some powerful abilities, however it is slowly but surely get a grip of their existence an will soon start to warp them into horrible creatures if not stopped. Verflucht Humans live a sad existence, completely indistinguishable from normal humans save for a mark on their skin, they are often driven to exile when discovered.
