A Lich is typically an undead mage that has prolonged its life through forbidden magics. Liches generally decay despite this, which is often viewed as a symbolic decay as well.

In Family, Dhiar and the others encounter an inhabiting lich, a lich without a physical body of its own, that possesses the bodies of others.


  • Liches are generally very powerful in terms of magic and magical knowledge.
  • Liches are usually immortal but, though hard to defeat once and for all, are not usually indestructible.
