Demiwraith

Possessed undead beings

Description:

Demiwraiths are an unusual type of animated dead. Not true undead, such as ghouls or ghosts, these hateful spirits possessed victims during the long years of the Scourge and eventually merged with the host body. Some of these spirits could not separate themselves from their hosts when the hosts died, and became demiwraiths.

Demiwraiths animate the dead flesh that imprisons them, and revel in destroying the living. A black, foggy astral substance often shrouds a demiwraith’s body, giving these beings an appearance similar to that of a true wraith.

Rules
Because a demiwraith is not truly undead, increase its Spell Defense and Mystic Armor by +5 against spells or powers specifically designed to target undead beings.
