Weepers are of slender humanoidal shape with exception of skin-covered, hairless tails. They have all-black, wet eyes that appear to weep. Known weepers have black hair, with grass-like antennae protruding from their heads.
On Saovine Eve, fairies kidnap little human children. Unlike some nymphs or antherions, who abduct female members of other races in order to secure their dwindling numbers or as the only way of species survival, the reason for child abduction by weepers are unknown. In exchange, they put their own offspring in place of the stolen human child. Such changelings can often appear human at first, leading mothers to care for them as they would for their own, which may be the way in which weepers learn Common.
- ↑ Incorrectly translated as mamune in 6.2 version of the game. The novel treats weepers and mamunes as separate species, and mamunes are not described to kidnap children.
