Aetherials are one of two otherworldly Factions present in the Grim Dawn universe.
Foolishly and greedily did the arcanists of Cairn delve into the magical veil known as the Aether, never once suspecting that something was looking back.
The Aetherials descended upon Cairn in what is now known as the Grim Dawn, possessing countless humans and butchering the rest. Most despicably of all, they began raising the fallen as mutated undead creatures, mindless foor soldiers for their invasion. Their very presence on Cairn is enough to mutate the wildlife, turning once docile creatures into viscious monstrosities.
But most strange of all is their apparent hatred for Chthonians, as they will battle against the horrors from the Void at every opportunity.
