Gorekrows are a race of shapeshifting beings who share the alternate plain of existence known as The Plain of Sorrows with The Black-Eyed Man (also known as Jack). As with Jack, nothing is known about the origins of this mysterious species. The species name partially derives from their habit of taking on the form of scavenging birds,namely that of crow-like creatures.

History

Out of all the entities associated with Jack, the most mysterious are the race of shapeshifters known as the Gorekrows. Nothing is known about this secretive race, even their true forms remain unknown. However, like Jack, this race occupies the alternate plain of existence known as The Plain of Sorrows where they are said to feed on the rotting corpses of Jack's victims.

Along with their habit of shapeshifting into scavenging birds, namely crow/raven-like creatures, the race is known for their uncanny habit of appearing in areas where Jack will soon arrive in apparent anticipation of the murder and carnage that will result in his visits. Sometimes they will appear to Jack's future victims, silently watching them with eyes filled with hunger. Other times they appear to those near the areas of future carnage. On occasion they have been known to speak to those they appear before, usually stating in the witness' own language, "He is Coming..." in reference to Jack's future arrival. Because of this, the species have been called "The Harbingers of Jack". Apart from their occasional encounters with the human race, attacks by individuals are an extreme rarity if any such interactions even exist. Even though they are associated with Jack, Gorekrows are never encountered when Jack is nearby. This could possibly stem from the race's fear and reverence of him as they will usually leave the area upon his arrival.

Description

Although it's implied through their preference of taking on the forms of bird-like creatures, and occasional humanoid bird forms, the true form of the Gorekrow race is unknown. However, all forms retain pure white eyes. There are two different forms that the race has been known to use. One is that of a humanoid with features similar to that of ravens and crows. In this form they are described as being very thin, almost emaciated, and covered in black feather-like hair. Their arms contain features that are both bird-like and humanoid in structure but are thinner, and the forearms longer in comparison to humans. The face is for the most part, humanoid, with sunken white eyes with no pupils, and a beak-like mouth.

The form that the race is mostly seen as is that of a raven or crow-like creature sometimes referred to as "Demon Crows" or "Demon Ravens". When compared to actual ravens and crows, there are significant differences between the "imitation form" and the forms of which they are imitating. Eyewitnesses immediately notice the individual's pure white eyes in comparison to the black eyes of ravens and crows. The
