Wraiths are ethereal physical manifestations of tortured souls from the planes of the Hells. Often called "ghosts" or "evil spirits" by mortals, these shades are driven by an intense hatred for the un-suffering living. Wraiths often inhabit the darkest dungeons, having either been drawn there by the imprint of pain and suffering, or summoned and bound by powerful mages, to serve as unwilling guardians. These ethereal creatures can pass through solid objects, and contact with a wraith can quickly drain one's life force. Spellcasters and other energy-reliant mortals may not only be drained of health, but are also left defenseless as their Mana is quickly spirited away to slake the spiritual thirst of these damned souls.
