The Tornrait is a sad creature, a Keldian ghost that has clung to the remains of its dead body. Tornrait's stay close to their remains, appearing as tattered figures made of dust sand and shadow, that ripple in the wind. A Tornrait is immaterial, able to interact with the world only through its voice, which inflicts a fear attack to all that hear it. Anyone who fails a fear check when hearing a Tornrait gains 1 Insanity point.
Unlike a Ghost a Tornrait can be harmed by Attack spells, although it has MD6. However like a Ghost it cannot be destroyed by attacks, if reduced to 0 Health it will vanish, but will reform in a day, and return to haunt again. It can only be laid to rest permanently by finding its remains and either destroying them or purifying them. Tornrait do not appear in the Twilight lands, where Ghosts can range freely.
