Darklings are a species of grotesque creatures commanded by the Gar sorceress Shokoti within the House of Darkness, on Eternia.
They've also been observed to dwell in the Sixth Dimension.
Darklings are medium-sized creatures with globular bodies, wriggling tentacles, multiple mouths with blue lips and sharp fangs, and a single eyestalk protruding from the top of their bodies. They form swarms to attack victims, but don't seem to possess sapience.
