The Cairn Wraiths are among the most powerful of the undead. Deprived of physical substance, they can drain the life of a mortal by simple contact. Their mere presence fills the air with fright, and most of those who face them die of fear long before they risk being killed. These avenging and angry spirits assail their enemies with great blows from their ancient bewitched falsehoods. On the other hand, whoever manages to fight back realizes that his pitiful attacks pass through the Cairn Wraith, touching only a stale air and rags. The Wraiths are quick to chastise such insolence.
