To many of the younger races, the Stygian Warriors all look alike, only their weapons telling them apart. One of the few Stygian creatures that are clearly recognizable is that of the Starved. These monsters are gaunt in appearance, visibly emaciated and seemingly frail. This couldn’t be farther from the truth as the Starved possess a strength born of absolute desperation. Failed or flawed warriors, the Starved are denied any privileged treatment within the horde. Their thinness belies a primal need to feed and they are no less vicious for it.
Deprived of sufficient sustenance, they feed solely on the battlefield, devouring their victims with relief. Attacking with savage abandon and feasting furiously on the flesh of their victims, Starved warriors often cease their battle to enjoy their fresh kills. There seems to be no end to the eating however, as they are never sated by a meal and seem to gain no benefit from the food other than the briefest of satisfaction. What these warriors did to be so cursed by their Goddess is unknown but research and observation revealed that the Starved are poorly treated by the rest of the host and are seemingly being punished for some transgression.
Starved warriors are by nature desperate and will not retreat from battle in spite of the odds. When a host concedes the field, it is usually the Starved that covers their withdrawal.
