The Immortal Ones, the Void (虚無(「イモータル」)) are invisible creatures who wander around the Hollow Night. They cannot be killed by normal means.

Information

Voids

Voids are dark shadows that are incapable of thinking and only move on their instincts to consume Existence.

Voids can take many different forms, their most common form is that of a small blob of EXS, the stronger ones take the form of snake-like beings and the strongest forms are tall, human-like creatures shrouded in darkness. When a person first transforms into a Void, they remain mostly humanoid save for their eyes turning completely red and seemingly bleeding and their body slowly being enveloped in a black mass as they degenerate further and further.

Normal people aren't able to perceive or interfere with them. Only the most powerful Voids can materialize themselves. Voids also become visible when they get close to high concentrations of EXS, such as the Abyss.

When a person is bitten by a Void, they become able to perceive Voids for the first time. This is also what triggers a person's awakening as an In-Birth. But if the person isn't able to keep their sanity when they witness a Void for the first time, they'll turn into a Void.

Voids cannot interfere with the real world. They only attack those within the realm of Hollow Night. Once the Night ends, the Voids remain in the alternative realm and wait for the next Night. Only the strongest Voids, such as Merkava, are able to access the real world, but only if there is a high enough concentration of EXS.

Void Fallen

Story-cg14

Void Fallen (虚無落ち) is the specific term used to refer to In-Birth who turn into Void. Just like regular Void transformation, the process of turning into a fallen Void is also irreversible. It is a rare event, but such has been witnessed to happen to Roger.

There are two ways how an In-Birth can turn into a Void:

1. Depletion
If an In-Birth overuses their power in a short period, it is possible to turn into Void. In this state, the EXS from body is extinguished and the Void Power starts to fill and take its place. Once it exceed a certain amount, the subject is consumed and becomes hostile to all sources of EXS.

Usually the subject goes unconscious from the fatigue before they can reach this state. It is very rare for depletion to cause Void transformation.

2. Contamination
The Void-like powers that surround the Abyss can corrupt an In-Birth's vessel and overwhelm it with the Voids power. Transformation into Void takes merely a few moments. However, contamination-based Void transformation is also very rare because regular In-Birth rarely manage to get close to the Abyss.
