About

The skeleton warrior is the largest version of the undead animated skeleton. They are tough warriors, usually clad in scraps of armor. Dark fey create these monsters for the Unseelie Court.

Obedient Soldiers. Most of the skeleton warriors are part of the Skeleton King’s army and the Autumn Court. They live in the Bone Castle with their leader and many other kinds of undead.

Spider Rider. These large skeletons often use skeletal spiders as mounts. The sight of this undead cavalry strikes fear in most creatures.

Undead Nature. A skeleton warrior doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
