(The Islamic equivelent to the Christian Satan) A ghoul is also a desert-dwelling, shapeshifting demon that can assume the guise of an animal, especially a hyena. It lures unwary people into the desert wastes or abandoned places to slay and devour them. The creature also preys on young children, drinks blood, steals coins, and eats the dead, then takes the form of the person most recently eaten.

AnatomyEdit

Ghouls are generally undead humans with rotting or decaying flesh and possible past traumatic injuries, such as missing limbs, broken/exposed bone and/or tissue damage. Usually depicted as gaunt, wiry figures they have unnatural strength and agility and can easily overpower most humans.

Feeding and InfectingEdit

Ghouls feed on anything from living tissue to decayed bones, normally depicted as carrion eaters and graverobbers, but will attack live prey viciously. Their bite is infectious and is the main attack in their arsenal along with razor-sharp claws.
