Triple Threat: Ghasts


Ghasts are dangerous humanoids that lurk in dark and desolate places. While they are much bigger than a human being they still have a humanish face (though they have no nose, just two holes despite their amazing sense of smell). Their rough leathery skin ranges from a dull rusty color to a dark grey. Their legs are vaguely kangaroo-like, though instead of paws they have hooves. They are most at home in complete darkness, in fact in well-lit areas they actually suffer damage as their dermis reacts badly to the light. Sunlight can kill them near instantly. Most ghasts prefer to hunt in packs though are happy to turn cannibalistic when other food is scarce. They prefer to pounce on their prey tearing them apart with their hoofed feet and sharp teeth.
