On the Astral Sea
These gargoyle-like shadowfolk are native to the Shadowfell. However, their antithiestic society often sees them working alongside the secret factions of the Astral Sea. They have a natural talent for controlling undead and wielding necrotic energy, so they complement necromancers, liches, and vampire lords well. Like undead, kir-lanan also have a weakness to radiant energy, though they are very much alive. Outside of the Shadowfell, kir-lanan travel in small squads of specialists, or “wings.” Kir-lanan wings keep to the shadows of society, secretive about themselves and their agendas.
