A barely intelligent creature living off the dead (or recently killed). With sharp fangs and claws they attack in groups but are cowardly and soon flee if meet with firm resistance. They are undead.
Since the Silence they have grown in numbers and are becoming more and more aggressive. Whole villages have been overrun and there are even rumours of a ghoul “king”.
Their claws are poisonous and will not only paralyze their unfortunate victim but might also cause infection or worse…
They are very stealth and have been known to ambush both the unwary and the wary. They are also difficult to sneak up upon.
