Once a year the vampires of the Northlands must feed in order to sustain their minds. Instead of hunting humans as the mindless beasts had been before the calming, it has become an honor to give blood to the Nether Spawn. These people are known as the selfless. Instead of becoming a cold husk of walking flesh the selfless give up their place amongst other humans to become permanently changed forever. The selfless appear as humans with one exception, their eyes become ebon in color. They can walk by day unlike the Nether Spawn and serve as guardians of the court and the people of their nation. They only need to feed on the blood of animals to satisfy their hunger. If hunger is left unchecked their features become contorted and feral. They have been known to lose control on occasion and attack any species to satisfy their hunger.
