The Accretion Gospel
A term applied to beings that supposedly descended from Scorn. They are living analogs to the Dreadtouch, and take on a variety of forms. Some appear as wicked demons, some as avaricious beasts, and some as cruel angels. Although Scorn and Dread were defeated, many of the Scornkin remain on Maya.
It is now theorized that the Scornkin may not have been descendents of Scorn or Dread at all, but rather subordinates of the beings who took on artificially crafted bodies that would allow them to guide the people of Maya with greater ease. It is also suspected that they may have originally been Nashan immigrants who used these artificially created bodies for some other purpose.
