Firephantom.jpg

Firephantoms (Q."Nárefairer") were a kind of Demon or Undead. Dead of demonic flames, the unreleased souls of these sufferers were swathed in the supernatural fire which had killed them. An immaterial form could be distinguished, motioning and writhing within a patina of roaring, spectral fire which smelled of brimstone.

These Undead wandered the lands in continual agony, feeling the licking flames which charred their flesh to cinder for an eternity. Their wails of immortal agony brought pangs of pity from any unlucky enough to hear. Any conflagration would draw them to its light, as a candle attracted moths. Not really cognizant of their Undead status, Firephantoms tended to rush towards any living being they saw in order to engulf the new victim in a desperate, belated plea for succor.Their bodies were immaterial, therefore only magic weapons would do them harm; however, immersion in water would “kill” them (as burning did to some other Undead).
