Himbda were created by the arch-mage Vothra hundreds
of years ago to defend his lair. They are souls imprisoned in their
own withered bodies created by a special
process
. They serve the person who controls them loyally performing
a multitude of tasks.

   They appear as a mummified corpse without the
bandages. Their eye sockets sunken and dark. They do not age nor
have no hair on their body. Their skin color is a medium gray and
dry to the touch.

   Each year under one’s control the Himbda have
a cumulative 1 in 20 chance of turning on its owner. If one Himbda
turns they all do. Himbda that free themselves of their masters
have a hatred for the living, more of a jealousy. Their only wish
is to return to their former self.

   A Himbda can be returned to its former self by
casting a resurrection spell on the body. For every year
of being a Himbda there is a 1 in 20 chance of becoming mad when
returned to its original form. A Himbda can never have more then
a 15 in 20 chance of going mad though. The souls within a Himbda
is also freed if the Himbda is physically destroyed.

foe and smash their skull into them for an additional 2d6 damage.
For each point of damage they have a 1 in 20 chance to stun the
opponent for 1 round.

Special Defenses: Immune to mind-influencing effects, poison,
sleep, paralysis, stunning, and disease. Not subject to critical
hits, subdual damage, ability damage, energy drain, or death from
massive damage. Himbda have the immunities of undead but may not
be turned for they have souls.
