The gloommasks are creatures that serve the fetian and draw their ranks from the servants of the Ascension Queen. Her entorage become the gloommasks when they don the harlequin like masks given them as part of the ritual. When this happens, they too begin to channel spirits of grief. Their goal is to roam the festival of the Ascension Queen to remind the various frolickers of the true purpose of Ascension Day. In general, the trend has been for revelers to attempt to out-gouche the gloommasks by appearing in garb even more outrageous than the holocaust cloaks and strange masks.
