Description[edit | edit source]
They resembled very closely their undead cousin, except perhaps being just a bit more slender and ghost-like. The stench of death and rot lingered around their undead forms. This stench could often be smelled from a 10 ft (3 m) radius and was terrible enough to cause nausea, retching, and in rare cases even paralyzation.
