巫妖Lich是强大的亡灵生物。他们通常受制于巫妖王的意志,使用冰霜魔法与死灵法术。[1]巫妖的标志性外观是巨大而漂浮起来的骸骨,身穿长长的袍子。他们通常都是天灾军团里的高阶成员。

和其他的亡灵生物不同,巫妖的灵魂并不是完全依附于躯体上。相反,巫妖会将他们的灵魂存放在名为护命匣的特别容器中,这可以让他们重获物理形态。这就是为什么巫妖的身体看起来和他们生前的模样会完全不同,同时只有摧毁护命匣才能真正杀死一个巫妖。只要巫妖的护命匣还在,他就不会真正死亡,并且可以重新获得一副躯体。[2][3]

历史

起源

魔兽争霸III里面的巫妖

德拉诺,后来成为了巫妖王兽人耐奥祖指挥着一群兽人术士以及会施法的死亡骑士。后来,当基尔加丹燃烧军团在德拉诺毁灭后抓住这些巫师时,他们被转化为扭曲而畸形的怪物。这些新生的巫妖拥有巨大的魔法力量,但他们不朽的亡灵之身被耐奥祖的钢铁意志牢牢控制。作为对耐奥祖不灭忠诚的奖赏,巫妖王赐予他们操纵诺森德狂怒元素的力量。现在,巫妖们使用着冰霜魔法,以及他们自己的死灵法术。[1]

对凡人而言,不借助更强大的力量——比如燃烧军团的——而成为巫妖是可能的。在第三次大战期间,诅咒教派的领导者克尔苏加德阿尔萨斯·米奈希尔利用高等精灵太阳之井复活为一个巫妖。[4]然而,复活一个巫妖所需要的能量与将他带回到现实世界需要的一样多。比如,作为一个强大个体的克尔苏加德,就需要一个强大的魔网能量交汇点才能复活。[5]

Artwork of a lich from Manual of Monsters

A lich is a powerful undead sorcerer who possesses tremendous magical power. During his mortal life as the warchief of the orcish Horde of Draenor, Ner'zhul commanded a number of orcish warlocks and even some of Gul'dan's death knights. When these wicked sorcerers were captured by Kil'jaeden and the Burning Legion after the destruction of Draenor, they were transformed into twisted aberrations of their former selves. Ner'zhul became the Lich King at this time. The sorcerers' new, undead bodies, though immortal, were bound to the iron will of Ner'zhul. Since the liches showed unswerving loyalty to their master, Ner'zhul granted them control over the furious elements of the cold north. Now, the liches wield frost magic along with their own considerable necromantic spells.[6][7]

"Lich" is an acquired template in the Warcraft RPG and World of Warcraft RPG.

Service to the Scourge

Liches are among the most powerful spellcasters and allies of the undead Scourge, serving their master with evil intent and great power. Often, they command armies as generals, surrogates for the Lich King himself. They are deeply entwined with the cold power of the grave. As a rule, these creatures are power-hungry, devious, and vicious. They utilize their great intellect and dark powers not only to serve the Lich King, but also to defeat each other in subtle political machinations, gaining strength and renown from each opponent's death. A lich resembles a skeleton with a chill blue glow emanating from within its bones. Liches often dress in flowing robes. These creatures are fond of pageantry and deception; they will often dress in the robes of a king or priest and expect their followers to call them by powerful-sounding names. Sometimes, they claim extraordinary powers granted directly from Ner'zhul himself, acting as though Ner'zhul were a god and they were his chosen priests or prophets. Instead of walking on the ground as mortals do, liches float above it on frosty mist. A lich floats from 6 -12 inches above the ground. Liches cannot trigger pressure plates or similar traps, nor do they leave footprints. Most difficult terrain does not inhibit liches, and they can cross calm water and other liquids with this ability. This movement is otherwise similar to normal movement, so liches can still fall down pits, for instance.

Typically, the Lich King elevates only necromancers to lichdom, but rumors speak of the occasional mage or shaman who also attains this status. Some tales imply that a spellcaster with enough personal and magical strength can willingly turn himself into a lich, but these reports are unsubstantiated. Some powerful necromancers can temporarily transform themselves into a lich.[8][9][7]

Rogue liches

The rogue liches walk Kalimdor with no intention of raising an army as when they were under the command of the Legion. Even a single undead draws attention; putting together a large group will surely get the local populace upset. Instead, these liches harbor a single, driving goal; revenge. They seek out those who helped bring about their downfall, first destroying all that they held dear and then bringing ultimate retribution upon the target.[10]

Human liches

Human necromancers are the most likely candidates for liches. Chilling mist billows from this skeletal figure. It floats in a cloud of mist, and black robes flow from its evil form. These liches are evil, cunning and loyal to the Lich King. They serve as generals of armies and as advisors to other powerful members of the Scourge. These liches are somewhat inexperienced and probably new to undead existence, but they are filled with power and arrogance. Liches prefer to have hordes of undead minions surrounding them. These lesser undead creatures protect the lich while he casts spells from a distance. Liches have no qualms about fleeing if the situation warrants.[11]

Notes

  • During the Warcraft III alpha, their skull was shaped differently. Their description also said that they were the former warlocks and shamans of Ner'zhul instead of being former warlocks and death knights.[12] This is because originally, the death knights of Warcraft III were supposed to be the same as those of the Second War.
  • Gunther Arcanus has been consistently referred to as a lich,[13][14] even though he has the appearance of a standard Forsaken.
  • Lichling is a term with unclear meaning, as it has been used both to refer to a miniature lich[15] and to Highborne Lichlings, a type of wraith formerly found in Azshara.
  • Taam, a rune used in various death magic rituals, is known as "the mark of the Lich".[16]
