Vilewights are undead creatures, the remains of those that delved too far and too long into the black arts. They resemble wights - eyes burning with malevolence, teeth like sharp, jagged needles, and leathery, desiccated flesh. The torso of a vilewight tears open when it rises from the dead, exposing dried, rubbery intestines. These guts function as limbs, snaking our of the wound as multiple tendrils. Each tendril ends in a vicious mouth dripping bile.

These undead creatures haunt graveyards and necropolises, but they also can be found in ancient libraries and in hidden cellars beneath wizards' guilds.

Vilewights retain none of the abilities they had in life.
