The Darkinic languages form a small language family in Soltenna. The most widely spoken Darkinic language is Qgam, official language of the country of the same name.

Darkinic languages are typically fairly analytic, with very little grammatical inflection. However, much of the native vocabulary was derived with extensive use of affixes.

Verbs do not typically conjugate; tense, aspect and mood are indicated by means of auxiliary verbs.

The languages typically confirm to V2 word order or some modification therof. There is a tendency toward head-final structure, including postpositions and clause-final conjunctions.

Nouns and pronouns have no inflections or gender.
