In slight darkness, shadow charmers are nearly invisible. When they keep to the shade, even vigilant eyes will pass over them, particularly if they hold still. Some shadow charmers can see in the dark, quench flames, project fear, and lower the temperature in a room, and even hear thoughts. They are also immune to magical fear. These skills will come naturally or not at all. A shadow charmer cannot be taught or born. They are made, often through the aid of a demon. Some advanced shadow charmers can unlock locks with their minds. Interestingly, shadow charmers still need milk to see magical creatures.
