The creature is seemingly humanoid, but rides on a ball of electricity rather than walks on two feet. The creature wears flowing black and yellow robes under scale mail armor and carries a heavy mace and large metal shield emblazoned with a single white-colored image of an eyeball. Etched into the shield, radiating from the eye out to the shield's edges, are yellow beams. The eye sockets of the creature's metallic helm shine with a menacing white light. Only its arms are readily visible, and appear to be crackling lightning bolts almost suspended in time.


Lightning is a force of sudden strikes and distant rumbles, and so too are the lightning revenants prone to violent outbursts after long periods of sleep. Lightning revenants tend to roam places where towns or other civilized outposts once stood, but were destroyed or abandoned. They find small, safe hiding spots to sleep until their territories are disturbed. They attack intruders only to drive them short distances from their hiding places, then retire back into bitter sleep.


Lightning revenants are unpredictable in combat. They often switch targets for no good reason. They are equally likely to strike tenaciously at the same foe every round regardless of other circumstances. A lightning revenant that can use its lightning attack only once per day uses it on the second or third round of combat. Those that can use lightning attacks more often begin a battle with such an attack, and then repeat every other or every third round. This is not to say they could not use a lightning attack every round until their allotment was depleted, they simply choose not to.
Lightning Attack (Sp): Lightning revenants can cast lightning bolt once per day with a caster level equal to their HD. Lightning revenants with 8 or more HD can also cast chain lightning once per day with a caster level equal to their HD.
