As I read it, the Shadow Children are the degenerate remnants of the
original human discoverers of St. Croix. The hillmen and marshmen are the
St. Croix aborigines who took on the discoverers' original form. They were
already of human appearance when the psychic shield surrounding the twin
planets was removed and the French colonists came.
To some degree they merged with the incoming colonist population and in
select cases such as Marsch they replaced individuals.
