My... my nails are all dirty...
— The Elsen


The Elsen are the primary denizens of the OFF universe, making up a neurotic and numb society powerless to stand up to its lords. They appear to be quite feeble, often being afraid of nearly everything. In high stress environments, however, they can quickly become a powerful force, imitating the Spectres.

Once they enter this state, they are referred to as Burnt. They take on various forms, all of which lose their head which is then replaced with a black substance. These Burnt require sugar to remain sane (although losing it will grant much higher power).
