A C'tan shard in battle

C'tan Shards are fragments of the C'tan.


The Shards are entities of near-unlimited power that have the power to project energy blasts, control the minds of lesser beings, manipulate the flow of time and even banish their enemies to alternate realities.

The only limitations to a Shard is its immense imagination and the faint memories of the being it used to be before it was severed countless years ago. None of the Shards recall the omnipotent being it used to be but each contains elements of the C'tan's personality along with their hubris. Thus, a Shard can be eccentric and unpredictable, with them striking their foes in an unexpected yet surprisingly practical manner. From their fingertips they can project transdimensional thunderbolts or bombard enemies with rocks along with boulders, transform into singularities to destabilize gravity or even simply fling their enemies backwards in time until they disintegrate.[1]

Known Shards include those of the Nightbringer[1], the Deceiver[2], and the Void Dragon[3].
