The Blood Witch enjoys finding new ways to corrupt and enslave humanity with her witchcraft. One of her fiendish creations are the flayed ones. Any citizen of Valkenholm that earns Sanguinara’s ire may find himself transformed into this bane, his very blood given a twisted form of life that corrupts his entire being with evil and madness. The newly-born bane finds his outer skin sloughing off, the better for his blood to scent the air in search of prey. His movements become jerky and stumbling, for his muscles are no longer his to control—instead, he is a slave to the crimson vitae flowing through his veins.
A flayed one is animated by its own blood and seek out blood to consume, for their exposed flesh is constantly shedding red droplets. The blood creature can form itself into liquid whips that arc out from its wrists to ensnare prey and pull them closer to be devoured. These creatures can no longer be considered sane or intelligent, as the ordeal of transformation erases any hint of their former life.
