Dekalps are normally benign, but on rare occasions can charm humans and become violent.
Whilst normally non-threatening, the injuries inflicted by a Dekalp appear similar to thick roots spread across the skin. If left unchecked, these invasive injuries can be used by the Dekalp to possess the unsuspecting victim, the Demon using them as both host and shield against attack.
Powers and Abilities
Possession: A Dekalp can, through prolonged exposure, infect, feed off, and eventually take possession, of a human, greatly increasing their destructive power.
- The name of Dekalp seems to have come from a back-translation of the Dökkálfar, the Dark Elves of the earth attested to in Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda.
