The Spirits of the Fifth is a general term that includes both wandering souls of the dead and beings beyond clasification, matters connected to heart, to thought, to sensation and mind.
The most well known of the Spirits of the Fifth is the Ta’amdel, fickle and powerful beings that feed on emotion. It is said that the Ta’amdel are the source of the Dreamborn. (see Otherborn) Their true forms are said to be that of winged, elegant men and women, or a fair enough seeming as to be eerie. Feather-winged, shimmering jewels of otherworldly beauty, with voices like the Tide, though others say this is merely a seeming, one of many. It is more often believed that Ta’amdel are as fluid as the ocean itself.
