Ghost Knight

(image)

Shape of ghosts may significantly differs from what it looked like in the past life - partly it's effect of the dark magic, but mostly the result of its own self-vision. Powerful ancient ghosts may looking like they want. So some of them appear in shape of riders. There isn't significant difference since mounted ghosts are flying with the same speed as unmounted ones. But for some reason there are numerous legends exactly about ghost riders. Allegedly there are ghost knights in shimmering armor each of whom is worth a whole army. Their human's height-long blades kill any living creature with one blow, absorbing its soul and dooming it to eternal suffering. Those ghosts able to move thing with their gaze and stop arrows in mid air. Where is truth and fiction, isn't known for certain. Even many necromancers consider ghost knights to be fiction, while others say there was only one immortal Ghost Knight, who left a bloody trace in history of the Great Continent. Anyway, since powerful ghost may looking like it want, many ghosts, inspired by legends, choosen the shape of ghost knights.
