Illes is one of the sub-types of the Darkling seeming. Dusty, quiet, and diligent, they surround themselves with dusty tomes of lore and the artifacts of long-dead lands and peoples. Theirs is the blessing of the Shadow Beauty.
In Iceland, the Illes (pronounced eels) are troll-like under-folk who linger beneath the surface of the earth and only come out at night. They’re said to lure humans away from the surface and into the darkness below, where the Illes either breed with the humans or suffocate them (depending on which legend you care to believe). The Illes of the Darklings are similar, to a point, though they needn’t be as clearly malevolent. They do tend to be tremendously ugly in the mask and mien.
