Armed with shadow magic-crafted barbed javelins, Heartrenders perform deadly hit and run attacks, their barbed weapons are powerful enough to fly through a mounted warrior and their steed and still embed themselves deep into the ground. Even as the weapon leaves their hands, the Heartrenders are already flying back up, new javelins materialising into their hands. Sometimes their blood-lust will draw them down to the ground for more conventional combat. They wear full-faced horned helmets, that distinguishes them from the Lifetakers, but like the Lifetakers wield Heartpiercer Shields with sharp, large spikes.[4b]
Their leaders are the Shrykes, each wearing a veiled helmet and a loincloth.
