No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
3/6/9 (Early) Month Powers:
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure weapon out of pure shadows which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. This can also be used for other non-combative objects, but within reason, something might be shaped like an iPod, but as shadows do not have any working parts and source of electricity, such as batteries, they would not actually play music.
Children of Nyx can create solid bullets out of shadows and fire them from their fingertips. The bullets fly fast enough to possibly tear into an opponent’s skin.
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a dome of solid shadows around them which will defend against attacks for a short time.
Children of Nyx are innately stronger and are slightly less drained by their powers during the night.
Children of Nyx can see perfectly in the night as if it were day and darkness in general.
Children of Nyx can communicate with and command nocturnal animals.
Children of Nyx have the ability to Shadow Travel,to teleport from shadow to shadow; the further the distance, the more is energy drained.
Children of Nyx can bend shadows around them, concealing them for a short time.
Children of Nyx are able to create complete darkness in a small area for a short time, extinguishing all light sources. They can also perform this power to a lighter extent, by putting out a single light bulb or candle with a thought.
Children of Nyx can telekinetically move and transform their shadow constructs. The more constructs moved and the bigger they are, the more energy is drained.
3 Months After Character is Made

The more constructs created and the bigger they are, the more energy is drained. They can also create a pair of shadow wings to fly with (which drains less energy than shadow travel).
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx are able to use the shadows to make up to 5 shadow creatures, no larger than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, to fight for them for a short time, while the shadow creature is fighting they are slower and the longer they use the shadow creature the more energy it drains.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx have the ability to shed their flesh and turn into a state of pure shadows and while in this state, the user is granted flight, their existing umbrakinetic abilities become stronger, their immune to all attacks in this state and anyone they touch has their vision stripped away for the rest of the transformation; however, once the user changes back they will be extremely drained and immobile for a long time. They would possibly pass out.
