Behavior in Life

Pride Token

Wights are people whose primary Vice in life was pridefulness. The ways and reasons that this manifests varies wildly from person to person; anything from extreme vanity, to clinical narcissism, to simply being a professional model. One does not have to be excessively vain to qualify, just more prideful than any other Vice.

Physical Characteristics

Wights are one of the races of Limbo that go through the most extreme changes while passing through the barrier between life and death. Since they were prideful and vain in life, whatever traits of theirs that they were proud of get turned around on them in their undead form. Bodybuilders become frail and nearly skeletal shadows of their former selves; cute, petite girls become hulking ogres; those with narcissistic personalities are changed so that their exteriors are as ugly as their interiors. In addition to whatever other changes they undergo, Wights also gain unnatural skin tones, claws, and either fangs or tusks.

Supernatural Abilities

The Wights of Limbo are uniquely possessed of absolutely no actual supernatural abilities. They have no special resistances to any form of damage, and they cannot drain spiritual energy. Instead, they have innate physical means of defending themselves, in the form of claws and fangs.

Excerpt from The Book of Limbo

A WYGHTE IS ONE OF THE RESTLESS DEAD OF LIMBO WHO HAST TAKEN ON THE FORME OF A TWISTED VERSION OF THEIR FORMER SELF. WITHIN THE REALME OF THE DEAD, THOSE WHO ONCE TOOK GREAT PRIDE IN THEIR APPEARANCE FIND THOSE TRAITES WHICH THEY ONCE SO TREASURED TO BE TWISTED AND TAINTED, SUCH THAT THEY ART HARDLY RECOGNIZABLE. THE PETITE BECOME LIKE UNTO HULKING MONSTROSITIES, THE STRONG ART WASTED AND FRAILE, THE BEAUTIFUL ART HIDEOUSLY MALFORMED. THESE TWISTED BEASTS ART A DANGER UNTO THOSE AROUND THEM, THEIR BODIES CHANGED TO HAVE CLAWES AND FANGS FOR THE RENDING OF FLESH. THOSE SPIRITS WHO ART POSSESSED OF IMMATERIAL FORMES HAVE LITTLE TO FEAR FROM THESE CREATURES, BUT ALL THOSE WHO ART CORPOREAL SHOULD TAKE CAUTION.
