Taller and leaner than the shambling Jacks, this creature appears to be made almost entirely of bone and hard, cracked sinew. It’s hands taper into dagger-length claws, and the violet light pouring from it’s eyes and mouth seems much brighter than the others. It’s body is pale, leathery white, though it’s arms to the elbow and its lower legs look blackened and charred. The man kicks weakly at the monster’s legs, his eyes bulging. It brings the man’s face close to it’s own for a brief moment, almost intimately. As you watch, the man’s body goes slack, and then it casts him aside in a crumpled heap at the base of the walls.
The apparent leaders of Mordan’s rank and file shock troops – the Lantern Jacks. Faster and much more deadly than the Jacks, Cinderwights move and act with an intelligence rarely seen among undead. They are capable of strategy and ambush, making them formidable foes indeed.
They have shown the ability to raise a new Lantern Jack within minutes, rather than the usual hours it takes for Mordan’s reanimating curse to take hold.
