The shuddeni are a vile and hated race, originating from the depths of the earth. Some believe that they came to be by the dark powers of Ashur, and are in fact twisted beings formed from the matter of the Void. They are a cruel and dominating race, one that believes they should rule and populate everything in the image of their dark gods. They are prone to hatred, greed for things that they believe their right to own, the desire to seek and wield power, and are well known for the priests and slavers their race breeds to cause pain to those they consider their enemies.

The shuddeni race is directly linked to the magics of Void, and are known to be the first to wield the powers of such. They train numerous void scholars and templars from within their dark temples and cavernous home. It is also believed that they have bred several creatures as minions to serve out their dark fancies, among those: The chaja and the Yaril.

The shuddeni are responsible for the War of Night and the War of the Eyeblight, and had a hand in many of the other wars that have broken out in the face of Avendar.
