Hellcrowns are incorporeal undead that arise from the unattended corpses of beheaded Hellknights.[1]

Appearance

A hellcrown occupies the helmet it wore in life, from which he shadow of the Hellknight's spine dangles.[1]

Ecology

If a decapitated Hellknight's corpse is unattended, a hellcrown can manifest hours after death, or days if the Hellknight fell in battle. Most hellcrowns retain no memories or personality from life, except a few particularly tragic ones who might hold grudges against those whom they blame for their death. Hellcrowns from different Hellknight orders possess different abilities reflecting their order's principles and discipline.[1]

Habitat

Hellcrowns haunt the site where they died and kill anyone that they encounter, consumed by a desire to enforce the Hellknights' merciless order through cruelty.[1]

Society

Hellknights view hellcrowns with both respect and disgust, considering those individuals to have been spiritually resolute but lacking in competence.[1]
