Sanguine Wights are echo's of the dead formed of blood, mindless automatons that obey the orders of the Benders of the Sanguine. Being simply blood, they lack any organs or flesh. Despite this they move as a solid, mimicing its past form.
A Sanguine Wight wears no armor, but its morphic form may appear to be wearing armor. A Sanguine Wight does only what it is ordered to do. It can draw no conclusions of its own and takes no initiative. Because of this limitation, its instructions must always be simple. A Sanguine Wight attacks until destroyed.
