Minotaur, Lost

The risen corpses of minotaurs who died while trapped in a labyrinth of any kind, lost minotaurs embody the anguish, rage, and humiliation of the worst deaths their people can imagine.

Pliable Malevolence. Motivated by an indiscriminate malice punctuated with a relentless hatred for any who survive an encounter with them, lost minotaurs may be swayed to track and kill specific prey. What it might desire in trade varies from creature to creature, but the prize usually involves an arranged hunt of some kind.

Tales of Caution. Among minotaur communities, parents tell their children bloodcurdling tales of lost minotaurs to dissuade them from wandering into old, structurally unsound labyrinths. Tales of the nigh-unstoppable malice of these horrors find an audience most everywhere.

Undead Nature. A lost minotaur doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
