The Fears in The Runner Verse have human-like personalities and pay more attention to mortals, making them more comparable to Greek gods than Lovecraftian horrors. It's suggested that they're more democratic than other portrayals, voting on decisions and being very strict about the rules of The Great Game. It has also been seen that the stability of the Fears existence is very unstable, leading to Fears splitting into others, mortals becoming Fears, and shard fragments amalgamating into new Fears. Fears are also know to be stripped of most of their power and imprisoned because they broke the rules, leading them to being what are known as Fallen Fears.
