A Wraith is the spirit of a person who has made an evil bargain in order to persist after natural death, or has been forced involuntarily into its current undead state. This transformation frees them of the limits of a natural lifespan, and grants them immunity to diseases, poison, and loss of lifeforce. Wraiths also need feel little fear of cold, and they can see well in the dark. A Wraith's corporeal form has terrible vulnerabilities: fire and most god power are dangerous to Wraiths.
