As old as time, the Liches are truly the generals in the armies of the Continuum. Unlike the solitary vampires, Liches battle with magic and control, dominating lesser undead, and using them as minions for their dark tasks. It is not known why the Liches came to the Aabahran, but it is suspected that after the battles with Irumeru, Chayesh required more powerful soldiers for his cause, and gave the gift of Lichdom to the haughtiest Arch-Magi of darkness. To see a Lich is to see death incarnate. Few can survive combat with these tremendous beings.
To seek the curse of eternal torment as a Lich, you must have mastered the hall of one of the schools of magic. Although most liches are drawn from the Necromancers, some have come from the Invokers, and even the powerful Battlemages. Regardless, to become one requires a total dedication to Halla, and a willingness to sacrifice mortality for power.
