|“|| Blood Fiends are a wild humanoid race, with bat-like features well adapted to life on the nearly lightless Shadow Vale. They have sharp teeth and claws capable of rending flesh and bone. They possess exceptional hearing, but their eyes are sensitive to bright sunlight. So named, they are entirely dependent on the Dark Elves for their survival, requiring elven blood to remain functioning and healthy. When deprived of this infusion of blood for over twelve standard hours, they go into seizures and eventually a rigid dead state. Elven blood will return them to life, but mental capacity seems to be diminished.
They possess an unnatural strength and durability unique to their race. Their physiology remains largely mysterious, seeming to depend largely on magic and the blood they drink. They cannot be cut or gored like ordinary flesh, rather they crack and shatter into stone-like fragments. It is believed that these fragments may be capable of reconstitution, as Dark Elven slaves are often seen gathering fragments in great baskets after battles before returning to the Shadow Vale.''

In fact, it is not known what their true name may be. The Dark Elves refer to them simply as "Sanguo'hil", or Blood Slaves.
Therefore, there are three possibilities of their origin:
