Similar to the common ghoul, draugr are withered, gaunt undead that hunt the living, especially those who have wronged them whether in life or in death; they are found within tombs and crypts, most frequently their own. Draugr have a feral cast to their features, and a faint bluish tint to their dead flesh and cauled eyes.

Draugr may attack with claws and bite for 1-3 hit points of damage for each successful strike, or may attack with a weapon. Rather than the paralysis of ghouls, draugr possess a grave chill: for each successful attack, the draugr drains half of the damage dealt as an unholy energy that heals the draugr.
