Shadow fingers were a symptom of the blight that ravaged Kensho's clan, beginning with a crop failure and eventually infecting the Gelfling themselves. They manifested as fungal growths which sprouted from parts of the body. Common treatment was to painfully burn them off, but it only worked on a select few. Thus, Kensho traded himself into service at the Castle of the Crystal so his clan could be better healed by the Crystal's light.[1]
