"A disembodied skull floats in the air, with gems in its eye sockets and its teeth. A powerful aura of evil emanates from the creature."
The magics preserving the lich's body against the ravages of time weaken, usually causing the body to gradually deteriorate until only a skull or even a single skeletal hand remains; this advanced form of lich is known as a demilich. Despite its ruined body, a demilich is far from powerless; if disturbed, the skull will levitate and suck the souls from nearby living creatures.
