Xenthreks are magical constructs resembling skeletons carved from transparent crystal. they are usually but not always human in shape (though human-like xenthrek may exhibit some animal features), and inside their glittering “bones” roils foaming liquid flame. Unnaturally quick, xenthrek gain +3 to their initiative rolls.

Most xenthrek attack with their clawlike hands, but some have been equipped by their creators with crystalline weaponry. A successful attack on a xenthrek shattered their crystal structure and releases a gout of liquid flame that scorches for 1-6 hit points of damage for two rounds.

Fire gives a xenthrek hit points equal to the amount of damage dealt; they are immune to cold. A magical weapon is required to damage a xenthrek.
