Mistwraiths were a species of creatures on Scadrial

They were created by the Lord Ruler from the Terris Worldbringers after he took the power at the Well of Ascension.

Through the use of Hemalurgy they could regain the sentience they once possessed, becoming kandra after being implanted with two Hemalurgic spikes.

Like kandra they appeared to be amorphous blobs capable of absorbing bones and tissue of other creatures to gain shape. However, unlike kandra, since they do not possess sentience these shapes were often horrific and mixed many different species into one.

Mistwraiths are people who have a blockage between the physical realm and the cognitive realm.[1]
