Tl'a'ikith

From 1d4chan

Tl'a'ikith are one of two species of undead githyanki which can be found in the realms of Dungeons & Dragons. Specifically, they are one of the two unique githyanki undead created by Vlaakith CLVII through the powers of the Crown of Corruption, with the other being the Kr'y'izoth.

Created from githyanki warriors, predominantly fighters and rangers, tl'a'ikiths are much more common than their kr'y'izoth counterparts, but are usually kept on Tu'narath or other githyanki strongholds as elite guards.

These undead githyanki appear as pale, spectral versions of their former living selves, still wielding their race's trademark silver swords. They never speak, instead simply obeying whatever orders they have been given.

Tl'a'ikith Template[edit]

For obvious reasons, whilst this template can actually be used on any dead Humanoid or Outsider typed creature, Vlaakith CLVII only employs the power of the Crown of Corruption to transform Githyanki in this fashion.
