Mimics are magical hybrid creatures that live in the Nameless World. Like many creatures in this universe, Mimics were created by the Faerie as a terror weapon during the Faerie War. In their natural form, they are described as "a glowing mist of eerie blue-white light."
Their name comes from their ability to consume and take the form of other living things. The ability to do so works similar to necromancy, draining power from unwilling victims to fuel its passage through the world; it is estimated that the reason the Mimic becomes a copy of their victim was the Faerie intended them to be the ultimate spy. It is almost impossible to identify a Mimic once they have assumed the form of someone else, and hence they are considered very dangerous creatures.
