All Dromen feed on emotion, which emotion they feed on depends on the Dromen. However, when the Dromen is feeding, they emit a sickness to the people in their general vicinity. This sickness, Dromen Disease, can vary based on the Dromen.
Some examples include:
Dromen Disease can also be contracted through blood contact with a Dromen. Dromen blood is a black substance with the same consistency as human blood. It tastes like oil, and will have the effect of drinking strong alcohol if ingested.
To become a Dromen, a human (or human-like entity) must have a Dromen physically touch their soul. However, Dromen will take in humans to work under them. This phenomenon is called “Nemuru” and works similarly to proxies. The process of becoming a Nemuru is often through parasitic means, but it ultimately depends on the Dromen. Dromen cannot be Nemuru for other Dromen.
Basic Dromen abilities include but are not limited to:
Constituent Dromen are the most common type of Dromen, They usually appear as humans with severe deformities, most often as elongated and featureless, wearing varying outfits. They aren’t very intelligent, and don’t have personality. They are unable to express emotions due to lack of such.
Constituent Dromen often have very few Nemuru, and their disease is often very basic slender sickness. Constituent Dromen do not have Domains, and often live in wooded or secluded areas. They have the basic Dromen abilities.
Ascended Dromen are the second most common type of Dromen. They usually look exactly like humans (or human-like entities), and this form is titled as their Ascended Form. They are able to change into a secondary, more monster-like form, titled as their Dromen Form. This form often appears as a Constituent Dromen, but can be something else. Ascended Dromen are intelligent and are able to express personality and emotion.
Ascended Dromen often have many Nemuru, and their disease can vary based on the Dromen. Ascended Dromen have Domains, though they are accessible to humans. They have the basic Dromen abilities, though sometimes can have more. Humans who become Dromen are 90% of the time Ascended Dromen.
Hadal Dromen are an amalgamation of a Dromen and a Hadal. Due to the rarity of Hadals, there isn't much known about this type of Dromen. They are capable of displaying emotions, intelligence, and personality. They have retained their Hadal-derived ability to alter reality. There are only ███ currently known Hadal Dromen in existence.
██████ Dromen are a rare type of Dromen that has only been documented once. They appear as tall, human-like entities covered in shadows. Usually only their faces are visible, and are often sickly pale with bright white eyes. They usually have long claws, and are able to control ████████. ██████ Dromen are extremely intelligent, though are unable to properly express emotion. ██████ Dromen are caused by a Dromen coming into contact and being infected with The ████████.
██████ Dromen are only able to feed on ████████, and thus their Nemuru have to be ██████, leading to them having very few Nemuru. They are able to have Domains, but they will be overrun with ████████, both liquid and solid. They have basic Dromen abilities, as well as abilities gifted to them by the ████████.
Empyrean Dromen are an extremely rare type of Dromen that has never been documented, though is often spoken of by Ascended and ██████ Dromen. They are rumored to appear as angelic humans, beautiful and without imperfection. They are tall and have several sets of white, glowing wings. Empyrean Dromen are rumored to be extremely intelligent, and are able to express personality and emotion just as Ascended would.
Empyrean Dromen are said to have very few Nemuru, and very intense disease that varies based on the Dromen. They are said to have very large Domains inaccessible to humans unless brought there by the Dromen. Empyrean Dromen are rumored to have godlike abilities beyond human comprehension.
