Wights are a form of undead creature in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplay game. They are wretched husks of their former living selves, baring chalk-white skin and prone to committing acts of hatred and violence upon the living. They are typically found under the thrall of a powerful necromancer, serving as bodyguards or enforcers. Wights can be ferocious in battle and are capable of killing others by draining them of their life force through touch. Anyone killed by a Wight in this manner can be transformed into a Wight upon death.
