Read this chain and got me thinking of Dark Folk as a dark reflection of man and I think the best answer for Dark Folk is actually something like a dog.
Maybe Dark Folk have big albino hounds they took with them from the surface when they fled. Without the light they've grown pale as snow and their eyes have atrophied in the darkness but in exchange these baying hounds have become excellent diggers and have an enhanced since of smell so great that it works like sight alongside their enhanced hearing. These hounds are called The Ghosts of The Tunnels and slink through the darkness like ghosts, baying when they find prey and leading their illusive Dark Folk to their prize.
Dark men wrapped in rags being lead by blind long hounds with ghost white fur and looking like irish wolfhounds sounds awesome.
