The Puppet Master Chronicles
Although their origin is unknown the race has recently made itself known by it’s plots to attempt to gain control of the Merged Earth. The Puppet Masters hover along the ground, although they have the ability to fly for short distances. No one knows where this ability comes from, as none has ever been brought into captivity to study. The Puppet Masters live in the Mirror Realm, and have the ability to control humans using the metal wires that extend from their hands. Once again the way these work is not currently understood.
Their motivations for attempting to gain control of the Merged Earth are also unknown, however, through the years they have come dangerously close to succeeding in their goal. If one could be captured and brought into study, many of these questions could be answered.
